Improve the comfort of your home with moisture proof spray foam insulation
When we look back at the insulation industry and see how far we’ve come, we almost can’t believe what used to be standard practice. Suffice it to say, we’ve come a long way from the days when sawdust was dumped inside the walls of people’s homes to keep them insulated and efficient.
From there, insulation best practices moved to spray insulation, which is fiberglass batt insulation made from spun glass fibers. Today, we use state of the art technology and spray foam insulation to keep people’s homes comfortable all year round. Other types of insulation simply can’t measure up to the quality and efficiency of this material.
Here are some of the many advantages to using spray foam insulation in your home, installed by the vastly experienced crew at Mr. Attic:
In terms of insulation, different materials and products used on and inside your home is given an R-value. This is a value that determines the level insulation per inch used. Poly spray foam has been proven to have a higher R-value than any other insulation material, with an R value of 6.2 or higher.
Natural Air Sealant
Where your insulation is concerned, you want something that will create both a barrier against air while providing insulation. Spray foam gets into all the nooks and crannies of the space it fills so that there will be no drafts or gaps. It does such a great job that it is often used as a super adhesive in spot applications to keep air from getting in or out of attics or crawl spaces.
One of the greatest things about polyurethane spray foam is that it is extremely waterproof. While other types of insulation may get soaked through when in contact with moisture, spray foam repels water. It is also nonporous so that it will never soak up any moisture.
If you have a space that has a gap of even 5% of the total area to be insulated, this can diminish your insulation performance by about 50%! One of the benefits of closed-cell polyurethane spray foam is that it expands as it sprays, eliminating the possibility of a void or energy loss.
