Spray Foam Insulation

Spray foam insulation is a two-in-one product, insulating and air sealing in one step. Unlike fiberglass or cellulose home insulation, house foam insulation expands when applied and completely fills a cavity to prevent air leakage and keep energy bills low.

Open cell spray foam along roof line
Open cell spray foam insulation works as an insulator and air barrier. The typical R-value of open cell house foam insulation is 3.7 per inch. Other features of open cell foam insulators include:
  • They are vapor permeable
  • They are able to accommodate seasonal movement
  • They're not a food source for mold
  • Dampens sound
  • Great for attic insulation

Closed cell spray foam along roof line
Closed cell house foam insulation works as an insulator and air barrier. An additional feature of closed cell spray foam is that it is solid. The cells of the bubbles remain intact (closed), which makes the product rigid. The closed cell composition and increased density contributes to a higher R-value than that of open cell foam. This can contribute to building stability during storms and high winds.
