Spray polyurethane foam (or “SPF”) insulation has the ability to conform to any space, forming an excellent air barrier, in addition to a thermal one. At Hill Country Insulation, we usually use spray foam insulation as the first step in air sealing and insulating a home, particularly in the attic, before installing an additional layer of fiberglass insulation.
The Benefits of Spray Foam Insulation
Spray foam adds structural integrity to your home, in addition to air sealing and insulating. It works to reduce noise and keep pollutants, allergens and pests out of your home. In addition to these benefits, spray foam is:
Keeping a space well-insulated can be difficult, since building seams and joints can get in the way and break the continuity of insulating materials. Since spray polyurethane foam is applied as a liquid, it is extremely effective in sealing small cracks and gaps, while maintaining consistency, as opposed to other insulation products.
Irregularly shaped areas are no problem for spray foam insulation, since it can easily conform to any space without issue.
Highly Resistant to Heat (High R-Value)
Spray foam insulation has a high R-value, meaning it is able to provide excellent thermal resistance. When it’s installed properly, spray foam can quickly bring savings due to its high thermal resistance and ability to air seal simultaneously.
