The Right Spray Foam Insulation: Open Cell, Closed Cell

We can fullfill every insulation project you can imagine!

More efficient than batts

Spray foam outperforms fiberglass batts in many features. For starters, it can insulate and seal the space at the same time. Secondly, it provides greater energy efficiency to the property under consideration. Lastly, its form stays unchanged so there is no loss to its density or shape.

Spray foam insulation is one of the most popular insulation materials for home improvement as it has become affordable and is energy efficient. It can save you on energy costs, saving you hundreds over the summer, and you will also be keeping your home remarkably cool even in hotter months.

The majority of people understand that insulation upgrades are a surefire method for helping your budget.

Using spray foam can help you to grow your savings. Cans of pressurized spray foam are available at hardware stores in small sizes for do-it-yourself projects, while more sizable jobs are handled by professionals. Spray foam is used when filling the space between studs, joists, and rafters.

Foam insulation is very efficient and quick to act, but there are cases where homes do not have the necessary tight spaces for maximum savings. Spray Foam Insulation Today will be able to provide a free evaluation & estimate of what is needed to improve your home's insulation.

Open-cell foam gives a lower R-Value but better Diffusion

Open-cell foam is made of microscopic air bubbles that are filled with air. This acts as the insulation, with the amount measured in R-Value at 3.5-4.0 per inch.

One brand of open-cell foam is Icynenen™. Icynenen™ only goes through independent contractors, but generic brands are readily available. Open-cell has the ability to fill in gaps, fill in cracks and expand the same way

Open-cell foam is like a sponge; however, it is far less effective when it gets wet. It's crucial to use closed-cell foam in damp areas like basements & crawl spaces.

Open-cell insulation is less expensive to install than closed-cell because it produces less insulating foam. If you plan on spraying the outside of your rafters & studs, it may be worth considering doing this before installing wood flooring. The thicker insulation is better for longevity.

Closed-cell foam insulation has the properties of a vapor barrier, solid finish and higher R-value

The shelves at the hardware store have canned foam that is made of single-component foam. The contractor uses a type of closed-cell foam called "two-component", Polyurethane foam on large projects.

The foam expands because of a chemical reaction that takes place as the chemicals leave the nozzle.

Closed-cell foam insulation offers higher R-values per inch than open-cell, which is what makes it so popular, especially for high-end projects. It can form an effective moisture barrier that will help you stay protected from humid environments.

This multi-faceted approach of stopping moisture, sealing airtightly, and providing high R-Value is preferable over other relevant solutions.
