Unlike other insulating materials, spray foam combines both insulation and an air barrier into one product. The cellular structure of the spray foam traps air in place, creating a strong barrier against energy loss through walls, roofs, and foundations. It also helps to reinforce a building’s structure, making it more resistant against wind uplift and minimizing damage from severe weather events.

In order to properly install this type of insulation, the surface must be prepared first. This typically involves cleaning the area and ensuring it’s free of dust, debris, and other contaminants. Homeowners should also be sure to vacate the home during the installation process. The process of applying the spray foam can off-gas large amounts of volatile organic compounds, so it’s best to leave until the spray is fully cured, generally in about 1-3 days.

In addition to these precautions, it’s important to hire experienced technicians to apply the spray foam insulation. This is because improperly installed spray foam may decrease the insulating value of the property and result in a lower R-Value.
