Have a new home being built, or have construction already in progress? Request for a spray foam estimate once the foundation and frame have been completed. Our insulators can provide an estimate at this level of construction.
You can also retrofit part of your home that has never had insulation. We’ll assess these areas and provide a spray foam insulation estimate to maintain a low energy use. Occasionally homeowners need a wall, ceiling or flooring insulated to prevent drafts.
Closed Cell vs Open-Cell
Like open-cell spray foam, closed-cell foam expands to fill gaps and cracks as soon as it’s applied. So what’s the difference? While open-cell becomes sponge-like, allowing the passage of moisture, closed-cell spray foam cures to a hard, smooth-surface mass. In other words, nothing gets past closed-cell spray foam.
At up to R-6 per inch, closed-cell foam is the highest R-value insulation material
available, and its air-tight seal decreases air loss, moisture buildup, and termite damage. This makes closed-cell spray foam ideal for sealing crawl spaces and other outdoor environments.
Open-cell spray foam’s unique texture – a property of its tiny, interconnected bubbles – provides an insulation value between R-3.5 and R-4 per inch. That means that your home will experience improved temperature consistency after spray foam has been installed, reducing the cost of heating and even cooling your home.
In addition to insulating, open-cell spray foam also seals cracks and crevices that allow the passage of air through your home. This makes it especially valuable in attic encapsulation where high temperatures in the summer force hot air through gaps around light fixtures, joints, and air ducts. That hot air doesn’t just affect your comfort, it also distributes dust, mold, and other allergens from the attic throughout the rest of your home.
