Benefits of Spray Foam Insulation Over Blown Insulation
Spray Foam Insulation Performs Better
Spray foam achieves up to 90% of its labeled value compared with only 50% for blow in insulation. It can also provide the highest R-value of all insulation types since it does not break down, settle or compress over time.
Spray Foam Insulation Improves Air Quality
Spray foam insulation creates an air-tight seal in the attic virtually eliminating air infiltration and absorbing radiation. Upon installation the spray foam expands, improving air quality and blocking out toxins such as pollen, dirt, moisture, allergens and dust particles. The spray foam forms a tightly sealed barrier, filling any existing cracks, preventing insects and rodents from entering and preventing mold and mildew from forming.
Spray Foam Insulation Maintains Its Effectiveness Over Time
Spray foam insulation maintains its flexibility and effectiveness over the course of time since it is resistant to the effects of convection currents. It also does not settle over time leaving gaps like traditional insulation can.
Spray Foam Insulation Improves the Value of Your Home
Installing spray foam insulation reduces energy consumption and improves the value of your home. Not only will your monthly energy bill be reduced, but you will likely recoup the initial cost upon the sale of your home.
