How Does Spray Foam Insulation Work?
It starts to expand as soon as it hits oxygen. It starts to fill in all the cracks, crevices, and all the hard to reach places. When properly applied by a certified spray foam installer, the spray foam will expand many times its original size. When it expands, it creates an airtight barrier preventing air leakage or infiltration. This dramatic expansion is what makes spray foam great for new construction and existing homes and commercial buildings in Connecticut.
What Are The Benefits Of Using Spray Foam Insulation?
There are many benefits associated with spray foam insulation. Because of spray foams expanding and hardening properties, it almost doubles the strength of the walls where its applied. At the same time, the spray foam works like a glue to hold roof sheathing in place. This is especially important in areas that have high winds.
Spray foam is not only water resistant, but it is composed of an inert polymer that provides no source of food for mold or bacteria. Homes that are insulated using closed-cell insulation are better protected against mold and mildew.
The inert polymer that spray foam insulation is comprised of allows it to have an indefinite lifespan. This allows homes and businesses to enjoy the benefits of spray foam insulation for years on end before needing to re-insulate. Businesses and families that invest in spray foam insulation can actually save money over the course of 20 years or more because of spray foam’s unique ability to perform at optimal levels for extended periods of time.
