Spray Foam Insulation

Are your floors cold in the winter? Is your attic unbearably hot in the summer?

These are just a few of the problems spray foam insulation can solve in your home. Spray foam insulation creates an air seal that helps improve the comfort of your home, as well as the energy efficiency.


What is Spray Foam Insulation?

You’re looking for energy-efficient insulation for your home, and you’ve come across spray foam.

Spray foam insulation can be used in the open cavities of existing homes like in the attic, crawl space, rim joist, or in the walls if they are exposed. It can also be used in new construction, commercial buildings, and pole barns.

Learn more about spray foam insulation, what it’s made of, how it works to make homes more comfortable and energy-efficient, and the differences between open cell and closed cell spray foam.
