Here are few reasons on why you should consider insulation and air sealing – Spray foam Insulation
Spray Foam Insulation is a two-component mixture composed of an “A side” (Isocyanate) and a “B side” (Polyol resin). These two materials previously heated comes out from a tip of a spray gun, the mixture reacts forming a foam that adheres to surfaces like roofs, walls or floors or fills cavities. This material has extraordinary physical properties that make Spray Foam Insulation one of the best materials for Insulate homes and other structures.
Spray foam insulation is made with a mixture of liquid elements that change in form as they are applied. As the liquid travels through the gun and gets heated up, the components get ready to react and expand once they are sprayed onto the wall surface. The expansion happens in ten seconds or less, meaning that even large areas in commercial buildings or homes with a lot of square footage can get sprayed in a matter of minutes. This means that it is easier and simpler to install than rolls of insulation. It also means that it is possible to insulate areas that would otherwise be hard to reach, like attics and ceilings. Spray foam can be the ideal kind of insulation for homes that were left partially finished or home with exposed areas that still need to be finished to be usable.
There are many advantages to using spray foam insulation to insulate certain areas of your home or business. Spray foam insulation is one of the easiest and quickest ways to have insulation installed, and it can work just as well as more traditional forms of insulation. Because of the precise and clean nature of the application, spray foam can be placed without leaving any mess behind. Technicians can complete insulation work very quickly using this installation method, minimizing any disruption to your business or family. With the reduced application time, you can easily have spray foam installed before the summer hits and your cooling costs skyrocket. You may be surprised by how little time installation can actually take when an expert team with the right tools and experience takes it on.
Spray foam insulation conforms to the space it is placed in, so it creates a very effective energy seal with the wall or roof surface. This seal helps to preserve the temperature in your home by allowing less air to flow in and out of the walls, windows, floors, and roof. But there can also be additional benefits to you as a homeowner of having insulation in place, as it can also serve to protect against multiple kinds of damage. There are additional threats to your home that insulation can help to keep at bay, like humidity, pests nesting in the area and rodent infestations.
In order to make sure that spray foam insulation is applied safely and properly to the appropriate area, it’s important to have it professionally installed by a qualified team from a licensed and insured business. Since spray foam insulation expands rapidly to many times its size, any accidental application in the wrong spots can result in disaster. It takes precision and experience to apply this type of insulation properly and effectively. The installer should also wear protective equipment to keep themselves safe and apply proper protection to the surrounding areas of your home.
