Foam Insulation

Spray foam is now the preferred method of everyone from contractors, architects, engineers, to renovation hosts on HGTV.


Unlike any other type of insulation, spray foam insulation creates an air seal. The air seal can transform your home into an energy-saving, eco-friendly environment. For example, if you live in a hot climate, converting your attic into a semi-conditioned space by closing soffits, gable, and ridge vents can reduce your moisture load. This prevents moisture-laden outside air from entering the attic (and ultimately your living areas). We can easily achieve this by moving the insulation from the floor of the attic and applying spray foam to the underside of the roof deck to seal all the vents. The air seal prevents radiant heat from migrating to the living area, creating lower humidity levels, and a much more comfortable living environment.

Many of our customers have commented that they noticed fewer complaints from their spouses or coworkers who are cold by nature. Temperature changes become less noticeable since the humidity that magnifies temperatures has been so dramatically reduced.

Comfort isn’t the only benefit. Spray foam combined with Low-E windows can lower utility bills by up to 60% over conventional insulation.

In addition, spray foam has the advantage of increasing the structural strength and durability of your structure by increasing rack and shear resistance when sprayed onto gypsum board and vinyl siding and increased racking strength when sprayed on Oriented Strand Board.

Finally, spray foam is much cleaner than fiberglass insulation. Spray foam greatly reduces pollen and dust from entering your home or office building, which can be a life-saver for family members or coworkers with allergies or asthma.

Closed Cell Foam

Closed-cell foam, also known as two-pound foam, is a high-density foam composed of compact cells. This compactness allows it to solidify within two minutes of its initial application. Its solidity creates a seal that makes it impermeable to air. This allows it to serve as an air, water, and vapor barrier all in one. This makes it the most powerful and energy efficient insulator available. Closed cell foam is especially popular and effective when it comes to home and office construction. Closed-cell foam tends to be much more expensive than open-cell foam. The resistance value of closed-cell foam usually ranges from 6.8 to 7.0 per inch.

Open Cell Foam

Open cell foam insulation, also known as half-pound foam, is a lower-density foam containing tiny cells of air which are not completely closed. Open-cell foam is less expensive is a thermal insulation material that expands 120 times its initial volume and fills cavities of any shape and adheres tenaciously to most building materials. It’s a less dense, spongier material than closed-cell foam that provides a continuous air barrier, but, unlike closed-cell foam, it doesn’t retain moisture. This prevents long term problems like mold as well as damage to heating and cooling units located in the attic. It’s less expensive because it’s developed using fewer chemicals and uses a water-based blowing agent.
