Why Foam Insulation?
There are so many reasons to choose spray foam insulation over fiberglass or cellulose in your building. Not only is it safer to use, it’s better at insulating your property. Depending on which density fits your needs and budget, spray foam insulation expands approximately 30-120 times its’ liquid volume to completely fill voids and cracks which are always missed with traditional systems. Although your initial investment is higher, this products’ advanced properties will lower energy costs to save you money, lots of it …Day after day!
Spray foam insulation is not considered a hazardous material. In fact, it is safe for both you, your family and the environment. The foam we spray uses the most environmentally friendly blowing agents that are available today. All research shows they do not produce harmful gases such as CFC’s and spray foam does not contain or release formaldehyde.
Spray foam insulation offers added value because it can act as an air as well as a moisture barrier solution that wind proofs and seals wall, floor and ceiling cavities to prevent air movement (including spaces around electrical outlets and light fixtures, at baseboards and where walls meet windows and doors). This means that UN-conditioned air cannot seep in from the outside bringing with it moisture, spores, pollen, or other environmental pollution. Spray foam through it’s air sealing allows the homeowner to truly control his indoor air quality for the first time
Do you know that almost 40% of the energy spent in homes for cooling and heating is wasted due to air infiltration?
The traditional materials used for insulation such as fiberglass and cellulose cannot prevent the flow of air through gaps. Gaps are created as these material are either stapled or simple placed in the wall cavities and do not create an air seal.

Spray Foam Insulation Redefines Traditonal Construction Methods and Benefits Modern Building Sciences and Energy Efficient Green Building Initiatives
Spray foam used in the Building Envelope outperforms fiberglass insulation, becomes a superior air barrier, and defies traditional, and perhaps, outdated building practices of attic and crawl space ventilation.
Benefits of Spray Foam Insulation
- Saves on energy costs.
- Stops air, moisture infiltration.
- A more comfortable home.
- Adds strength to the building.
- Permanent and will not sag.
- Keeps dust and pollen out.
- Reduces maintenance and wear of HVAC equipment
Other Awesome Benefits of Spray Foam Insulaton
Close cell spray foam insulation has R-value of 6.0 per inch thickness though it can also go to 7.0 depending on particular formulation as well as application. On the other hand, fiberglass has R-value of 3.0.
R-value refers to heat flow resistance. In simple terms, higher number means more insulating power.
Lower Utility Bills
It is estimated that 30 to 40% of total energy loss in a building is due to air infiltration. Since spray foam insulation covers the stud and wall cavities from end to end, there are no air gaps and it creates a perfect air seals which means there is no air leakage. You can expect significant savings on your utility bills with spray foam insulation.
Prevents Moisture Infiltration
Mold spores can enter Austin home from outside air that flows into your home through the air gaps. When these mold spores settle on moist spots inside, they start growing. These can grow on food, carpet, paper as well as wood.
Spray form prevents moisture in the air from entering your home and helps in maintaining a healthy indoor environment.
Adds to Building Strength
Closed cell SPF has a density of 1.7 to 3.0 pounds per cubic feet and this density can go higher depending on the formulation. Due to its high density, it also adds to the structural strength of your home when installed in the correct manner.
It does not degrade, settle, sag or shrink with time. It is also an insect and fire resistant.
Creates Effective Noise Barrier
Open cell SPF is highly effective in reducing ambient noise and creating a low noise living environment inside your home.
Whether you are renovating your home or building a new home, spray foam insulation can be conveniently installed and it takes much less time to install as compared to fiberglass or other common insulation materials.
