Spray Foam Insulation 316 Insulation

Spray foam Insulation Contractor is a highly effective way to improve the energy efficiency of your home. It creates an air seal that stops cooled air from escaping through the attic, helping your furnace and AC work less hard to keep your home comfortable. It also reduces drafts, and blocks moisture and vapor from entering your home or causing mold growth.

When sprayed on an area of your house or pole barn, the liquid foam expands to fill the nooks and crannies of any spaces where it is applied. It can be used in the attic, crawl space, rim joists and wall cavities of existing homes, new construction homes, and concrete slabs. It can also be sprayed onto the roof of your building to prevent ice dams.

DIY vs. Professional Spray Foam Insulation: Pros and Cons

There are two different types of spray foam insulation, open cell and closed cell. Open-cell spray foam contains small cells or pockets that aren’t completely encapsulated, which makes it a softer and more flexible material. Closed-cell spray foam, on the other hand, is much more rigid because the individual cells are pressed together, making it an excellent barrier against moisture and vapor.

Professionals use a special rig that combines two liquid chemicals, isocyanate and polyol resin, to make spray foam insulation. The two chemicals are kept in separate hoppers and transported by a special hose to a gun where they meet at the tip and react, creating the foam solution. Some contractors offer DIY kits for individuals who want to do the project themselves, but it is challenging to achieve consistent results without a professional rig.
