Advantages of Spray Foam Insulation
Spray foam insulation has its own wide spread advantages as compared to other kind of insulation available in the market. Spray foam blocks airflow by expanding and sealing all cracks, holes and apertures. It serve as almost perfect vapor barrier and that too with a better permeability rating than plastic sheeting vapor barriers thus reducing the build up of moisture, which causes mold growth. It increases structural stability in very similar manner to wet-spray cellulose also it can be applied even in small quantities wherever needed. Spray foam can be used in places where loose-fill cannot be used such as between joists and rafters. When spray foam is used between rafters it covers up the protruding nails from the underside of the casing, decreasing chances of getting injured. One of the most important bonus with spray foam is that can fill wall cavities in finished walls without tearing the walls apart. Spray foam insulation makes your home more comfortable and healthier place to live in and has a higher R-value than other insulators so it provides better insulation. It decreases energy consumption hence decreasing energy bills. Spray foam improves air quality and is permanent in nature additionally it also provides sound insulation for residential and commercial buildings.
