What foam spray insulation can do

Spray Foam has great R-value and superior air sealing capabilities.  Air sealing you home will stop air leakage and make your home more comfortable in any climate. If you’re looking to maximize your energy savings and reduce your heating and cooling costs then you should consider air sealing your home today.  While Foam Spray Insulation is by the far best insulator it is also very expensive.  It’s easier & more affordable to install during your initial construction but it’s entirely possible to use Spray on insulation in your existing home without sending a small fortune. 

Insulating your existing home with Spray on insulation 

Most foam spray insulation contractors specialize in new home construction. This is because it’s easier to install then. Since they charge a per square foot price they can cover a lot of area fast which makes them a ton of money. When they insulate a newly constructed home with Spray on insulation they can do it in less then a day and have the ability to make thousands of dollars.  Established homes that have already been constructed have a unique set of problems. For these applications, spray foam insulation can be used but the contractor must have special training in order to do the job right and make your home more energy efficient.
