COUNCIL BLUFFS IOWA SPRAY FOAM INSULATION AND ITS BENEFITS
Spray foam insulation is created by mixing two different liquids that react with one another, and when sprayed on a surface it expands rapidly to create a stiff seal and barrier. Spray foam insulation achieves a perfect fit each time we apply it, eliminating voids and gaps between structural materials like walls, roofs, floor rim joists, and corners of the home, which virtually eliminates air infiltration and gaps, resulting in significant energy savings. There are different types of spray foam, and insulation technicians value them based on their "R-value," which measures the material's resistance to heat transfer. The higher the R-value, the better insulation it provides to maintain consistent temperatures in and around the area applied. Ask our technicians if you have any additional questions about this as we are happy to provide you additional details.
Pros to spray foam insulation are the following:
1. It doesn't sag or settle or break down over time like other types of insulation
