Advantages of Spray Foam Insulation
There are many advantages to spray foam insulation: You will see a noticeable difference in energy savings. There are different types of spray foam insulation but the main type is known as Spray Polyurethane Foam, or SPF. SPF can be more effective and economical than any other type of insulation including older pink fiberglass batt insulation, and has an R-value of R-6.2 per inch, or more. Spray foam also expands after being sprayed, which gives complete coverage and prevents air leakage. Finally, SPF maintains its R-value by never compressing, absorbing moisture, or falling out of place.
Two Types of Spray Polyurethane Foam
- The first type of spray foam insulation, 1-part foam, can be found at most hardware stores in pressurized cans with brand names like GREAT STUFF™. The 1-part foam is very sticky and depending on the type you choose, can expand at different rates as soon as you apply it. That seals gaps along with insulating, and can be labeled an “insulating foam sealant.”
- If you are looking to insulate more hard-to-reach places like an entire wall or basement rim joist, a 2-part foam spray (containing both a resin and a catalyst) used by a contractor is the solution. This SPF comes in a pair of metal containers. This 2-part spray foam reaction is what causes the foam to expand and insulate those especially hard to reach areas and seal even more effectively.
