Learn about Spray Foam

What exactly is Spray Foam?

Spray foam insulation is an alternative to traditional building insulation such as fiberglass. A two-component mixture composed of isocyanate and polyol resin comes together at the tip of a gun, and forms an expanding foam that is sprayed onto roof tiles, concrete slabs, into wall cavities, or through holes drilled in into a cavity of a finished wall. Spray Foam is far superior to any other kind of insulation.

Is Spray Foam truly safe?

If you stay out of your home during and after spray foam installation, and if the spray foam has “cured” properly, then spray polyurethane foam insulation (SPF) is generally considered to be safe. In our 15 years of using it, we’ve never encountered an issue.

Can Spray Foam be applied on a wall that is already built?

Yes it can.

How do you compare Spray Foam vs. Cellulose?

Cellulose is a more cost-effective way to insulate a home and will work for most people.

Spray Foam is costlier, however it is unmatched in terms of effectiveness. Buildings treated with spray foam insulation typically insulate as much as 50% better than traditional insulation products.
