What is Spray Foam Insulation?
Spray Foam Insulation is a type of effective insulation made of a two-part mixture composed of isocyanate and polyol resin. The mixture is prepared on the site and is applied to surfaces through a spray gun. The two chemicals mix together to become polyurethane foam and act as an air barrier that expands into a solid, cellular plastic that contains millions of air-filled cells. These cells fill the cracks, crannies, and crevices of the space to prevent air leakage. Spray foam insulation effective in filling even the smallest cavities and reducing air infiltration.
Benefits of Spray Foam Insulation
Spray foam insulation is a premium type of insulation property owners choose for long-term benefits. Unlike other types of insulation, spray foam permanently adheres to surfaces. It does not settle over time, which means that your home only needs one installation. While other types of insulation can allow harmful fibres or allergens into the air space, spray foam insulation keeps your home air-tight. Spray foam creates an air seal around your property which prevents both leak-in and leak-out and keeps your home cozy and comfortable.
Spray foam is also an excellent deterrent to condensation on the walls. Condensation is formed when there’s a big difference between the temperatures inside and outside the house. Spray foam prevents condensation by creating an air-tight foam bubble to prevent the inside and the outside air from meeting.
Spray foam insulation offers additional benefits including:
- More efficient heating and cooling
- Improved air quality
- Reduced noise
- Increased structural strength
- Reduced moisture infiltration

How Does Spray Foam Insulation Work?
Spray foam creates a seal in your home's walls, floors, and ceilings to keep air outside. The material uses a two-part liquid that contains modified urethane or polyurethane and a foaming agent.
Foam insulation is of two different types including open-cell and closed-cell spray foam. While open cell spray foam is a cheaper version and more spongy, closed cell spray foam is more dense and solid. Depending upon your needs, our technicians can advise on what’s best for your home.
When our workers spray these liquids into a space, the insulation expands into a solid, cellular plastic that contains millions of air-filled cells. These cells fill the cracks, crannies, and crevices of the space to prevent air leakage.
