Benefits of Spray Foam Insulation
Good insulation is a very important when it comes to protecting your investment. When we discovered that the fragile, fibrous and inefficient traditional insulations cannot match the advantages of spray foam due to their common problem of not fitting tightly enough to prevent air infiltration, we purchased our own unit and having been applying it to all of our log homes and many traditionally-built homes ever since.
Most of the heat loss in homes has to do with seal rather than the insulations themselves. The R-value of a material is of of no interest or consequence if air can get past it.
Air infiltration can most effectively be stopped with spray-in-place polyurethane. It is the only product that, when properly applied, will not only fill all the corners and crevices, but the bonding of the spray plus the expansion of the material in place will effect a total seal.
Rigid urethane foam has been call "super insulation" because, inch for inch, it provides up to 3 times the insulation value of other insulation materials. In contrast to fiber insulations that must be protected from wind and water vapor, spray-in-place urethane foam provides its own vapor and wind barrier with it's air-sealing properties.
Spray application of urethane foam is fast and efficient. Large areas can be covered in minutes for a seamless, uniform insulated surface.
