Benefits of Foam

draft

Draft Resistant

Conventional insulation, such as fiberglass batt insulation, provides a poor barrier against air leakage since it is unlikely to fill in all cracks and seams. When professionally applied by a certified DOW installer, spray foam insulation expands to seal virtually all spaces where air may escape or enter a structure. Drafts are stopped from coming in and air leaking out is eliminated! Therefore, the amount of energy needed to maintain a preferred indoor temperature is greatly reduced, resulting in energy savings. Medium density spray foam insulation acts as an insulation, air barrier and vapour barrier, all in one application.

strength

Increases Structural Strength

Medium density spray foam insulation increases the structural strength of your home by over 200%. With spray foam insulation being applied into all cavities, a structure will become more rigid and as a result, issues such as settling and creaky floors will be moderated. In addition, spray foam insulation will not settle or shrink and adheres to almost any surface, including wood, metal, concrete and most plastics.

airquality

Improves Air Quality

Spray foam insulation in your home or business will improve air quality. A continuous, airtight seal prevents pollutants such as dust from invading a structure. Spray foam insulation exceeds all building codes for air barrier systems. In addition, spray foam insulation does not contain any loose particles that may adversely affect indoor air quality. Medium density spray foam insulation is also mould and moisture resistant, a particular concern when insulating a below grade structure such as a basement.

moisture

Moisture Resistant

Due to it’s non-porous nature, medium density spray foam insulation resists moisture penetration. By comparison, conventional fiberglass batt insulation is susceptible to moisture infiltration, which can drastically reduce it’s R – value and contribute to mould accumulation. When applied below grade, medium density spray foam insulation can eliminate the problem of damp or wet basement walls.

enviro

Environmentally Sound

Using spray foam insulation to insulate your home or business can contribute significantly to reducing the environmental stress faced by the world today. Spray foam insulation ensures that your home will maintain the highest standards of energy efficiency and as a result, reduce the carbon emissions produced by the burning of fossil fuels needed to heat and cool most buildings.

noise

Reduces Noise

Having spray foam insulation installed in your home or business will reduce outside noise from infiltrating the indoor environment. The noise created by interior mechanical systems, such as HVAC systems, will also be reduced.

Common Areas to Spray

1: Under side of roof deck

Free up space in your attick for some of the mechanical devices in your house or make an extra room for storage and/or living space.

Under Side of Roof

2: Attic floor

This is the most common area for heat loss in the winter and heat gain in the summer, by taking out old insulation and installing DOW styro foam brand spray foam at a 2" depth to seal and form a superior airtight vapour barrier while increasing r value and reinstalling old or new insulation (blow-in) or a half pound foam you can expect to stop heat loss from the highest loss area in a building which gives you the best return for your money and is often done in 1 day.

3: Exterior walls

In most older homes there is nothing insulating exterior walls or a sub-grade type of insulation at best with no vapor barrier at all allowing air to easily penetrate your house carrying with it allergens, dust and pollen, and with no insulation your heating/cooling costs are taking the hit. We are certified spray foam installers and  we can come from the outside or inside of an exterior wall to replace your insulation with as much or as little foam as you like. A lot of older houses are built with 2X4 studs and with conventional batt insulation can only get an R - 12 at best (SEE ACTUAL R - values) where with the same space with spray foam you can get up to R - 28 in the same space with a far better seal, strengthen your building and most of all save you money!

4: Sound proofing

Easily sound proof floors, walls around bedrooms or mechanical rooms. and around showers to keep the house peaceful, quiet and comfortable.

5: Insulate basements and crawl spaces

Another problem area is basements due to moist air commonly found in basements and crawl spaces. Batt insulation can be rendered useless very quickly and has been known to trap and hold moisture that can lead to rotting in the structure and mold which leads to health problems. Spray foam will not rot or mold and won't be infiltrated by moisture and can actually fill and seal gaps and cracks to help stop moisture from getting in at all.  You can feel safer knowing that mold and rot is not going to be a health issue for you and your family.

It is important to understand how your building or home wastes energy and what type of action can be taken to correct this problem. Generally heat is transferred from inside a building to the outside in all directions (side to side, up and down). Heat does not rise; hot air rises because of relative densities. Heat energy generally moves from hotter to colder; or more simply, heat follows cold. That means the building, as a system, must be insulated from all sides. Building contractors focus their efforts on insulating walls and ceilings, leaving floors and basement walls completely uninsulated.

R - value is the most common measure of the insulating qualities maintained by an insulation material; it is a measure of thermal resistance. A greater R value will result in more effective insulation. It is, however, important to note that a manufacturer’s R - value applies only to properly installed insulation. Improperly installed insulation is far less effective. Conventional fiberglass batt and blown-in insulation systems may actually perform at a much lower level than indicated by their R – value, depending on how well they have been installed.

The R - value of insulation is substantially diminished with the presence of air leakage. Often, over 40% of a home’s heat loss can be attributed to air leakage.

By using spray foam insulation, installed by a certified DOW styro foam SPF CA installer, the issue of air leakage is eliminated. Spray foam insulation seals your home completely, making it 100% airtight. Spray foam insulation is seamless, making it more efficient than any other material used to insulate a structure. The R – value of medium density spray foam insulation is well over two times that of conventional fiberglass batt insulation, provided the latter is operating under ideal conditions. Medium density spray foam insulation has the highest R - value per inch of any insulation available.

Spray foam insulation, installed by a certified Full Span professional, will maintain it’s stated R - value for the life of the Building, guaranteed!
