Spray Foam Insulation
You may be familiar with spray foam insulation but not know what it is. It is made from two types of composites, isocyanate, and polyurethane. Once these are combined, a chemical reaction is created that causes them to expand and begin to harden. When the spray foam is being installed it starts to expand and create a protective layer of insulation over the space that it is intended to go over. While we install both closed cell and open cell foam, the majority of our customers prefer closed cell insulation.
Closed Cell Spray Foam Benefits
There are a host of benefits that you will experience from the installation of the open-cell spray foam. Here is a list of the top benefits of spray foam insulation
When Should Spray Foam Be Installed
Spray foam insulation should be installed during the construction phase just like other types of insulation. This should be done after the electrical wiring, HVAC system, and plumbing has already been installed, but before the installation of interior walls.
