Spray foam insulation is a state-of-the-art insulation product that dramatically increases a home's thermal performance. With a superior R-value and unmatched air sealing capabilities, it reduces air leakage while providing the best thermal performance of any insulation product on the market.
Spray polyurethane foam has an R-value (thermal resistance) of approximately 6 per inch of installed insulation, making it one of the highest performance insulation products on the market. This means that your home will be warmer, and less drafty, even in conventionally framed construction.
Spray polyurethane foam fills all the cracks and gaps within the cavities that it fills, avoiding the common problem of air leakage that plagues other types of insulation such as fiberglass batts. This reduces drafts, and prevents infiltration of moisture and harmful gases.
Reduces Moisture and Mold
Because of the superior air sealing properties of SPF (spray polyurethane foam), moisture is less likely to enter your building once it has been insulated with spray foam. This reduces the risk of mold, as well as the risks of rot and structural damage that accompany water infiltration.
Open Cell Foam and Closed Cell Foam
We offer both open cell and closed cell spray foam products. Closed cell provides a superior air and moisture barrier, making it the most effective insulation available for energy performance. Open cell spray foam is a more affordable option that still provides an air sealing capacity and an R-value that supercede nearly every other insulation product on the market.
If you are looking to hire a professional to perform an energy audit of your house and/or to do energy efficient retrofits to your house, you would be a fool not to hire Cherish and Dean Benton of Benton Green Energy.
