Spray Foam Insulation 316 Insulation

Spray foam insulation can be sprayed into walls, roofs and open cavities like attics, crawl spaces and rim joists. It can also be used in new construction and existing homes, commercial buildings and pole barns. It’s an excellent choice for reducing energy bills, preventing drafts and cold spots in walls and roofs, and providing an air barrier that helps protect against moisture intrusion.

Spray polyurethane foam (SPF) is a liquid mixture composed of two components—isocyanate and polyol resin—that comes together at the tip of a spray gun and expands to fill voids with an air-tight seal. It can be sprayed into holes drilled into walls or into wall cavities, a space that would otherwise be filled with wood or steel studs.

The Cost of Spray Foam Insulation: Is It Worth It

Professional contractors are required to use specialized equipment to produce the chemical reaction that produces spray foam insulation. Once the contractors have acquired the A-side and B-side components, they must facilitate the chemical reaction in a spray rig before the foam can be applied.

A spray foam kit can be a good alternative to hiring a professional for the job. These kits provide the spray insulation, application equipment and instructions that contractors need to produce a consistent foam with consistent expansion. They can typically be purchased for a fraction of the cost of professional spray insulation.

Both open and closed spray foam insulation effectively insulate homes by creating an air barrier that can prevent drafts, cold spots and high utility bills. However, the type of spray foam that is best for a home depends on the situation. Open-cell spray foam is better for sound attenuation while closed-cell is more rigid and offers a greater R-value per inch.
