Advantages and Disadvantages of Spray Foam Insulation

The major advantage of spray foam insulation is that it is effective in multiple areas including walls, ceilings, and attics. It gets into tiny crevices and cracks where traditional insulation cannot. It is eco-friendly and highly efficient. One big disadvantage is the upfront cost of spray foam. It is significantly more expensive than conventional insulation products but the return on that investment in the form of lower energy bills is well worth it.

What is the installation process for spray foam insulation?

Spray foam is a great product because it literally and figuratively allows insulation to go places it wasn’t able to in the past. It is installed by being sprayed out of a hose and as it is applied it expands and hardens in place. The unrestricted design allows spray foam to get into tight places or irregularly shaped areas. Spray foam’s density also means that it carries an extremely high R-value within a minimal surface area, allowing for great insulation in a smaller space. 

Can I Install Spray Foam Insulation Myself?

Since it requires a special machine and expert installation, spray foam is something that typically requires an expert. As an Angie’s List Super Service Award winner in the category of insulation, Snap Construction is a great option for all of your spray foam insulation needs. 

Why Should I Choose Spray Foam Insulation?

Proper insulation can help reduce heat loss and gains making your home more energy efficient and keeping it comfortable all year long. 

Do You Need Attic Ventilation With Spray Foam Insulation?

You absolutely need attic ventilation when using spray foam insulation because it allows airflow to move in and out of the attic. This will prevent any heat transfer which will keep the rest of your home from getting hot. 

Should I Remove Old Attic Insulation Before Installing Spray Foam Insulation? 

The removal of old insulation is necessary before installing spray foam insulation because it prevents mold growth and improves the efficiency and performance of the spray foam.

“Had wall insulation with Snap, Attic planned for shortly. My wife was having a reaction to other housework we've been doing, so Snap took extra precautions to minimize the amount of dust left from their work. I was very impressed with the steps they took, along with the time to complete. Job well done and recommend them to anyone looking for insulation.”

We are grateful

“We hired Snap to handle our insulation install after having an energy audit that confirmed our 1915 home was woefully under-insulated. Tim was great to work with from the initial walk-through and estimate, to explaining the process, and making sure the project was completed to our satisfaction. Now a year later with natural gas prices on the rise, we are grateful to have our home better insulated to keep our costs down.”
