Spray Foam Insulation

Spray foam insulation can be installed in new homes and during home renovations. It’s also possible to add it to existing walls without tearing them apart. It creates a tight building envelope that improves energy efficiency. It can also reduce the amount of outside noise that enters a room and helps maintain indoor comfort.

To estimate how much spray foam insulation you need for your project, start by measuring the length and width of each surface to be insulated. Multiply the measurements to calculate the total area. Then multiply the area by the desired thickness of the insulation. The result is the number of cubic feet of spray foam needed. Remember to account for waste and overspray. A good contractor will consider these factors when calculating your needs.

The type of spray foam used for your project will also impact the price. Closed-cell spray foam is denser than open cell and therefore costs more per square foot. However, it offers greater R-value and has better insulating properties than open-cell foam.

Spray foam is a two-component product that contains a mix of chemicals (isocyanate and polyol resin). The two ingredients are stored in separate tanks until they are mixed at the tip of the spray gun. They are sprayed together into a thin, frothy liquid that expands as it hardens and provides air and vapor barriers. Spray foam companies use heated hoses to ensure the products are properly mixed. Homeowners using DIY spray foam kits may not have access to a heated hose and could experience off-ratio spray with sub-par results.
