About Spray Foam Insulation
Spray Polyurethane Foam (SPF) is known for being a superior material for both insulation and commercial roofing projects, among other applications. SPF is the most robust insulating material on the market today and is frequently utilized to insulate a wide variety of residential, commercial, and industrial buildings.
Spray foam can fully insulate a home or building, as well as seal it from air and moisture infiltration, resulting in a more efficient structure with lower energy bills. Spray foam can also strengthen the walls and roof of a home or building, as well as protect it from airborne particulates and mold.
Benefits of Spray Foam Insulation:
Prevents air and moisture intrusion
Can help to lower energy bills
Strengthens the building envelope
Keeps out dust, pollen, and bugs
Protects against ice dams
Improves indoor air quality
Meets current building codes
Spray foam can be installed over a wide variety of substrates, including concrete, wood, steel, and most existing roof systems. When it comes to roofing applications, SPF’s versatile adhesive property can translate to savings on roof removal expenses and landfill fees. Applicators can easily install a tapered foam roofing system, which is less expensive than installing other tapered roofing systems. Vertical terminations, protrusions, and mechanical unit risers can easily be spray applied with SPF, which makes them an integral part of the roofing system and minimizes addition material costs.
The Building Science Behind Spray Foam
Spray foam insulation has redefined traditional construction methods to facilitate the energy-efficient green building initiatives of modern building science. Spray foam used in the building envelope outperforms fiberglass insulation. SPF is a superior air barrier that defies traditional, and perhaps outdated, building practices of attic and crawl space ventilation.
