In the past decade a major breakthrough in
insulation has been discovered; Liquid Spray
Foam. Liquid spray foam insulation is dramatically
better than conventional spray because it is a flexible
substance that expands and contracts with your home
and does not settle or pack down over time. Another
major improvement includes that foam insulation will
not support or spread flame and is not damaged by water
Old standard insulations allow a lot of airflow through
them. With air loss and air infiltration in our homes and
buildings being high, utility bills can be much higher than
necessary. Foam insulation does not allow air to flow so
freely making it a superior insulation material. Stopping
unnecessary air flow helps homes become much more
All structures have air gaps and crevices that
allow air to infiltrate the building causing
substantial energy loss. Natural conditions such as
weather and pressure exploit these openings allowing air
to infiltrate your home. In older homes, conditioned air
inside your home escapes out and is replaced by outside
air several times a day causing you to heat or cool
outside air that keeps on getting into your home.
Spray foam is the best solution to the problem because it
expands up to 120 times to fill every crack, gap, void or
crevice as it creates an air barrier. Spray foam is most
effective at insulating a home because it conforms to the
space in which it is sprayed, and it has high R-values
(this standard insulation rating). This results in a
dramatic reduction in the energy use of your home.
Spray Foam is a revolutionary insulation
product that is far superior to conventional insulation
and can decrease your energy bills up to 50 percent.
In addition to controlling temperature, spray foam
insulation acts as an air and moisture barrier.
Spray foam insulation involves
combining two different ecologically
safe materials, an isocyonate and an
organic resin polyols. The two are heated
up and sent through two hoses and meet at a
tip of a gun where a thin film is ejected into
cracks and between wall studs and expands up
to 120 times its volume.
After the product sets up it has a rough texture
that expands beyond the drywall barrier. We
then scrape off the excess foam in order for the
drywall to fit properly. We basically make sure
the foam is cut smoothly.
The foam insulation won't allow air to move
through or around it, creating a complete air
barrier. Spray foam can also be applied to the
underside of a roof deck, creating an airtight
seal between the roof and the attic space.
The most important benefit of spray
foam insulation in the attic is that it is
able to go where nothing else can go.
This means tiny cracks and holes that may
have otherwise gone unnoticed. Standard
fiberglass or cellulose insulation cannot
accomplish this feat. Spray foam insulation
effectively eliminates energy waste in ways in
which no other insulation can.
Standard roofing techniques require that attics
are ventilated resulting in extreme attic
temperatures and there's no reason for an
air-conditioning and vent-ductwork to have to
work in those conditions.
By applying spray foam right on the underside
of the roof deck, the severe temperatures no
longer exist in the attic. The attic is now a
"conditioned" space of the house that is just as
comfortable as any other room in the home.
