While it is true that spray foam insulation costs more than other types of insulation, it will be worth every penny. The R-value of spray foam exceeds other insulation materials by a good margin. Its performance will save you money in the long run. The way foam insulation expands after its application leaves no room for the passage of air and water. Heat transfer is thus kept at the lowest minimum and this makes it easier to maintain the desired temperature in a room, whether hot or cold. The impact foam insulation will have on your energy bills depends on your location.
While construction workers pay attention to the load-bearing requirements of structures, the effects of nature are barely considered. One excellent advantage that spray foam insulation has over other insulation types is that it adds to the structural integrity of a building. No other type of insulation does this. When foam insulation is sprayed on a surface, it spreads, filling cracks and crevices. This way, it bonds with the surface completely and adds to its strength. Insulation will serve as an additional layer of support and protection for your structure. For example, closed-cell insulation will save your attic from damage during storms.
The installation of spray foam insulation will make your home or office healthier. This is because foam insulation will make your walls impenetrable for pollen and other allergens. Spray foam fills up all cracks and crevices, so there will be no chance for the penetration of air. Furthermore, both closed-cell and open-cell insulation will prevent the build-up of moisture in your property. In the absence of moisture and pollens, you can be assured that your building isn’t at risk of the growth of mold and mildew. The healthier your workplace, the higher its productivity.
Another reason why you shouldn’t be put off by the cost of installing a spray foam insulation is that it is very long-lasting. It will retain its quality and efficiency for a long period of time. Spray foam insulation will neither break nor sag. You will only have to install spray foam insulation in your building once, regardless of how long you stay in it. Meanwhile, insulation materials such as fiberglass and styrofoam will become less efficient over time and hence, require replacements. Other forms of insulation will cost you more money in the future.
