Chances are highly likely that your future new home construction will be served by spray foam insulation. As you know, insulation is one of the cornerstones of an energy-efficient house. Building contractors’ reputations are on the line, so as it pertains to insulation products, they’ll most often go with spray foam. Closed-cell spray foam can achieve R-values that double that of open cell insulators. As a bonus, spray foam also adds its rigid nature to the structural integrity of the building.
Spray foam insulation is versatile and being used to insulate your roof, loft, walls, and floor, help in retaining warmth and reduce energy costs. It is beneficial because it will be applied in difficult-to-reach areas where there is traditional insulation that simply will not work or will be very difficult to make work. It is recommended too because it provides additional soundproofing. Since it is manufactured on site, within your home, you will get to see the manufacturing process, to an extent. Generally, closed cell foam is being used because this is much denser than the open cell insulation and is being referred to as two-pound foam. It is not easy to tear pieces off and it forms a much thicker and harder skin than the open cell foam. It is expensive however it performs much better and is vapor resistant which means that you will apparently get away without a vapor barrier.
Spray foam is airtight provided it is installed correctly and will provide airtight seal to stop draughts coming into your home. With spray foam being sprayed directly onto the fabric of your home, there will be no gaps or joints in the insulation that will allow cold or water vapor to penetrate. And when installed by professionals and experienced fitters, spray foam insulation will be installed quickly.
