How Spray Insulation Works

Spray foam insulation is developed from two types of composite materials, polyurethane and isocyanate. When combined, these two materials chemically react to each other and cause their combined substance to expand and harden. During the installation process, both materials are simultaneously sprayed from the tip of a spray foam gun, allowing them to expand and form a protective layer of spray foam insulation over the desired area

Air Leakage

We understand that controlling air leakage in your home is essential. Not only does air leakage account for 40% of energy loss but it can also lead to serious problems like damp and mould.

Spray Foam

Polyurethane spray foam is a type of insulation that is applied into the home to insulate walls, ceilings, under floors and the underside of roof decks. It is more effective than traditional insulation because it expands to fill difficult to reach places and anywhere else you would use insulation for thermal resistance or sound proofing.

Air Tight Seal

Spray foam insulation is uniquely capable of thoroughly sealing holes and cracks in your attic or crawl space. Air leaks are often one of the biggest reasons for high energy bills. Spray foam insulation creates a powerful airtight seal that has shown to be 24 times less permeable to air infiltration than other types of insulation.

Moisture Barrier

Holes and cracks in your walls and crawl space can allow entrance to more than just air. Water and moisture can gain access to these areas through exposed cracks and holes if not sealed.

Spray foam insulation is impermeable to water. This means that not only will spray foam thoroughly seal and protect your attic and crawl space from airborne moisture and leaks, but if flooding should occur in the area, spray foam insulation will not absorb the water like other materials will.
