Spray Foam Insulation

One of the most efficient types of insulation with very high R-values

Spray Foam Insulation

Closed cell spray foam has one of the highest R-values among the insulation types of 6.2 to 7.4 per inch and is resistant to moisture build up. Unlike other insulation products, spray foam not only insulates, but it reinforces the structure it is sprayed on, making that area of the home stronger. Although it is primarily used in new construction and remodeled walls, spray foam can be added to any area needed for a higher R-value and increased energy efficiency. 

The great thing about closed cell spray foam is that it both insulates and creates a tight air seal, preventing air flow. Once the product is sprayed onto a surface, it expands and fills the entire area, including small cracks and corners. 

To install spray foam insulation, our professional crews bring in an industrial sprayer connected to two separate barrels, each holding a different liquid that must stay separate until application. Wearing appropriate protective gear, including a respirator, the installer sprays the two liquids into the space that needs to be insulated. The spray foam then solidifies and starts insulating immediately.

Note that you may be required to vacate your home for a few days, depending on the ventilation and volume of foam used. Your S & E Insulation specialist will help you determine what the safest course of action is for you and your family.

Installation Method

Sprayed into the wall cavity with small sprayers or larger pressurized sprayers. Note: In some cases, homeowners must vacate their home during this process.

Advantages of Spray Foam

TOP reasons to insulate

According to NAIMA (North American Insulation Manufacturers Association)

1

ENERGY EFFICIENCY

Reducing the need to run your heating/cooling systems directly reduces power plant CO2 emmisions and lowers homeowners’ carbon footprint.

2

REDUCE ENERGY BILLS

Over the past 15+ years, residential electricity prices have jumped 39%! The average homeowner spends $2,200/year on energy bills.

3

homeowner demand

Energy efficiency is an increasingly important factor for homeowners. Whether they’re looking to remain in their home or sell in the near future, an energy-efficient home is desired.

4

sound insulation

Noise can come from outside (sirens, traffic, neighbors) or inside (kids, TVs, music), and the sound control provided by insulation is an attractive benefit.

5

healthy home

The health of your home can directly affect the health of its inhabitants. And for those that suffer from asthma or allergies, protection from outside pollutants and allergens can be essential for well-being.
