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.
