Spray Foam Insulation has Many Advantages – Boston, Worcester

13 January 2014

Spray foam insulation is a smart choice in insulating your home. Spray foam insulation not only keeps your home warm, it also protects your home from mold and mildew, as well as insects and pests. Additionally, it is a safe way to insulate your home because it fire resistant.

When moisture gets into your home, mold can grow causing major health problems. Traditionally home insulation cannot keep the water out of your walls, ceilings and floors.

Spray foam insulation works against water because it expands to fill all open spaces causing a seal and it will not chip and crack over time. Water leaking into wall and floor cracks is leading cause of mold in basements. With spray foam insulation, these cracks are filled and sealed.

Cracks in insulation mean air pockets. Insects and pests are attracted to these air pockets.  Spray foam insulation fills all the cracks and holes in your foundation walls and basement ceiling. Because all the cracks are sealed, no bugs can find a home in your walls.

Spray foam insulation expands and fills spaces and exactly fills the crevices and cracks around the basement or attic where it is installed.

Another advantage of spray foam insulation over traditional home insulation is that it is fire resistant. Having your ceilings, walls and crawl spaces insulated with spray foam protects you and your family from house fires that would traditionally travel through walls. With traditional insulation, not only is it flammable, there are air pockets around it. Spray foam is fire resistant and there are no air pockets to feed the fire.
