Spray Foam Insulation – How to Apply Quality Insulation

As a sprayable Quality Insulation, it can be sprayed directly onto the wall surface or into crevices and corners. The foam expands to fill the space, creating a tight seal and excellent insulating capabilities. The R-value is much higher than blown fiberglass insulation and can provide significant energy savings.

There are two different types of spray foam — open and closed cell. Open-cell foam is softer and more flexible because the cells are deliberately left unencapsulated, so there’s more air in between the cells. This makes it a good choice for older homes, where the walls may have cracks and voids. Open-cell foam is also more affordable than closed-cell.

Maximizing Comfort with Quality Insulation Solutions

Closed-cell spray foam is denser and more rigid than open-cell foam, which helps it perform better at insulating the home. It can be used in the rough-in phase during new construction or in existing homes to insulate walls, ceilings, and floors. It’s also ideal for minimizing air and moisture infiltration.

Homeowners should not attempt to handle the installation themselves as it will require a professional spray foam contractor. It also releases a lot of volatile organic compounds during the spraying and curing process, so it’s best to vacate your home for 1-3 days until the process is complete. This will help prevent breathing in the fumes while the spray foam is forming and curing. In addition, it is advisable to wear full face and respiratory protection during the application.
