What Is Spray Foam Insulation?
Spray foam insulation is an alternative to traditional fiberglass insulation. It is applied wet and quickly expands into a thick foam that fits snugly in wall cavities, crevices and gaps—therefore, it can be installed in hard-to-reach areas and around piping and wiring.
Due to its expanding properties and versatile placement abilities, spray foam insulation is a favorite of commercial and residential buildings alike.
Benefits of Spray Foam Insulation
This type of insulation can help:
- Eliminate air leaks
- Reduce your energy bills and maximize the energy efficiency of your home or building
- Make your home or building more comfortable year round
- Reduce noises from both outside and inside, between different rooms and levels
- Improve the performance of your HVAC systems
- Contribute to a healthier environment
Spray foam insulation should be installed by a trained professional—someone who has been trained in the correct installation safety precautions and possesses the required equipment to mix and apply the product. When installed properly, polyurethane spray foam insulation can help reduce energy costs and help improve indoor air quality. Our team has the knowledge, experience and resources that few companies can match.

Spray Foam Insulation FAQs
What is the difference between closed-cell and open-cell insulation?
- Open-cell foam – This type of insulation is full of cells that aren’t completely encapsulated. This makes the foam a softer, more flexible material.
- Closed-cell foam – This type of insulation is made up of cells that are completely closed. Closed-cell spray foam is much more rigid and stable than open-cell foam.
Spray foam vs. fiberglass insulation?
- Spray foam – This type of insulation has a higher R-value, meaning it’s effective in resisting airflow. While spray foam is a little more expensive, it will definitely pay off on energy bills in the long run.
- Fiberglass – Fiberglass is a cheaper insulation option, and is also a great option for attics.
