Insulate It Solutions – Spray Foam Insulation

attic insulation is a liquid that expands when sprayed, filling every nook and cranny in your walls, attic, roof and other areas. It conforms to the unique design of your home and creates an air barrier, which is the most important factor in insulating a home. It’s also more flexible than other forms of insulation, so it fits hard-to-reach places.

The Installation Process of Spray Foam Insulation

It’s more expensive than fiberglass, but it saves energy by reducing the flow of heat in and out of a space. It can lower your energy costs up to 50 percent. Air leakage is responsible for 40 percent of your energy cost, and spray foam eliminates this major source of heat flow.

You can install spray foam on your own with DIY kits, but you’ll need to have experience in the field and access to the appropriate equipment. The chemicals used in this type of insulation are corrosive, and you’ll need to follow safety precautions. These include gloves, goggles, respirators and full-body coverings to protect yourself from the off-gassing.

A professional installer will be able to ensure that the chemicals are applied in a safe manner. They’ll also know how much to apply, as the thickness of the insulation depends on the climate where you live. For example, two inches of foam in a wall or three inches in a roof will meet most building codes and provide an R-value of up to R-40. In a colder climate, higher R-values are typically required.
