Spray Foam Insulation Owosso

Spray foam insulation Owosso is one of the best and most effective kinds of insulation available. It has proven to provide much more power savings than any other type of insulation. It seals air leaks which are one of the major reasons for high energy bills. It also provides a lot more R-Value per inch than fiberglass batt insulation.

The R-value of the spray foam insulation is determined by the density and the open or closed cell structure. Open-cell spray foam is usually around R-3.5 to R-3.6 per inch while closed-cell can go up to R-6. It is possible for homeowners to install this type of insulation themselves using DIY kits. However, achieving consistent coverage and proper expansion is challenging without prior experience. Closed-cell spray foam creates an air and vapor barrier all in one, so the homeowner doesn’t have to worry about applying a separate vapor barrier.

Year-Round Savings: The Cost-Effective Solution of Spray Foam Insulation in Owosso, MI

Spray foam is a two-component mixture consisting of isocyanate and polyol resin. The two chemicals are kept in separate hoppers or tanks until they meet at the tip of a spray gun and react to form a foam solution. This foam is then sprayed onto roof tiles, concrete slabs or into wall cavities. It can also be sprayed between the joists in a raised home or between the wall studs in an existing wall.

Once applied, the foam quickly expands and fills and seals all cracks, crevices, and voids found in the building envelope. It creates a custom, airtight envelope in which the heat from the home or business cannot escape during the cold winter months or enter in the hot summer months. It also blocks convective flow which is the movement of heat through other parts of the building envelope.
