Spray Foam Insulation Bradenton, FL
Foam insulation also has the advantage of fitting into small spaces and around existing structures. It can be applied to new, unfinished construction or to an existing finished home or business.
This insulation comes in two forms – open cell and closed cell foam insulation. Both types start as liquids that join together to form a material that expands to fill the space where it is being sprayed, and then hardens into a more solid form.
When properly applied, foam not only blocks airflow and drafts, it also blocks temperature changes that occur through conduction and radiation. Conduction is when a material cools or heats up on one side, such as your roof heating in the sun, and the heat travels through the material so that both sides are hot. Then the heat of that material’s surface radiates into the surrounding air.
Spray foam insulation offers many other benefits. Because the foam is not attractive to pests as a food or bedding source and blocks their entrance, it can decrease infestation with insects and rodents. It also blocks moisture, which can help decrease the risk of mold and mildew. It can block allergens, such as pollen, from entering the home as well. Another benefit is that it can block sound from the outside and between rooms, providing a quieter environment.
Although the cost of spray foam insulation is generally higher than other types of insulation, the long life, exceptional insulation performance and extra benefits can make this product well worth it in the long run. However, to achieve these benefits the insulation must be expertly applied in the correct thickness and with an in-depth understanding of the home’s structure.
