Why Spray Foam Insulation
Using Spray Foam Insulation is simply the best insulation choice you can make for your home or building in Monroe NY. It is believed that 40% or more of your home or apartment’s energy loss is attributed to air escaping through small-sized holes, cracks and openings in the building structure. Profoam is able to seal your home from air and moisture leaks, saving you hundreds of dollars on pricey utility bills, while at the same time strengthening your home, and protecting your family’s health from possible hazardous mold and airborne pollutants.
Why Spray Foam Insulation for Monroe, Orange County NY properties?
Simply put, our weather here in Monroe NY can be both very cold in winter and very hot during the summer months. These conditions make it essential to make certain that leaky drafts are not present on your property. As these drafts will allow heat to escape in winter and hot, humid air to enter your property while trying to remain cool in the summer. Spray Polyurethane Foam (SPF) is a spray-applied plasic which is designed to abolish these drafts. It creates a continuous insulation and air sealing shield on the building walls, roofs, around corners, and on contoured surface areas.
Spray Foam is typically made by mixing and reacting unique liquid components at the job site to produce foam. These liquids are made to react extremely quickly as they are combined. The outcome is an expansion on contact to create spray foam which insulates, seals gaps, thus creating those all important moisture and vapor barriers. Spray foam insulation is capable of resisting heat transfer, and subsequently provides a very effective solution in reducing heating loss and unwanted air infiltration through any seam, joints and other cracks in your property.
Types of Spray Polyurethane Foam
There are three primary types of spray polyurethane foam that can be used for insulation and other specific purposes:
- High Density: often used for exterior and roofing applications
- Medium Density: often used for continuous insulation, interior cavity fill, and unvented attic applications
- Low Density: often used for interior cavity fill and unvented attic applications
Each product offers unique benefits that we can explain to you and help you determine which types of foam will be most appropriate for your building, the Monroe, NY region climate, and project. Beyond the structure of the foam itself, the other significant difference relates to how it is created and installed. The main delivery systems include:
- High-pressure 2 component foam
- Low-pressure, 2 component foam
- Insulating foam sealant
Get the Best Value from Your Roofing Insulation
The standard gauge of the performance of any insulation is its R-value. Insulation is devised to stop the flow of heat. The more heat the insulation stops, the higher the R-value of that insulation.
Whenever compared with fibreglass batt insulation, spray foam insulation enjoys a higher R-value at a given thickness. In other words, 2 inches of spray foam will insulate your roof much better than 2 inches of fibreglass batts.
Cellulose fill, either blown-in or applied by hand, also has a higher R-value than fibreglass batts at the same density. But, once more, the R-value of spray foam insulation is pretty much twice as high as cellulose fill insulation of the same thickness.
As meaningful as R-value is in just how well insulation functions, it is not the sole aspect to think about when selecting the most effective roof insulation. Moisture is going to result in both the fibreglass batts and cellulose fill to lose R-value. In fact, slight moisture, that you cannot view or feel, can absolutely lower the R-value of fibreglass batts.
Spray Foam insulation is vastly superior to fibreglass and cellulose
Neither fibreglass batts or cellulose fill insulation can seal each and every crack in your roof. Heat can travel through the open gaps and this decreases the R-value of the insulation, while the R-values shown for fibreglass or cellulose do not take this into consideration. In other words, the actual R-value of installed fibreglass batt or cellulose fill roof insulation is lower than the listed R-value.
Spray foam insulation is not affected by moisture. As a matter of fact, it can eliminate minor leaks because, as soon as it is administered, spray foam insulation spreads out to fill every gap and seal your roof. Pollutants and some other airborne irritants that may make it through the gaps left by batts and fill are shut out by spray foam insulation.
Perhaps best of all, insulating your roof with spray foam insulation amounts to about the same as other insulations.
