Polyurethane Spray Foam Insulation is an increasingly popular form of insulation created by spraying 2 heated liquids through a spray gun onto a target area. These applied fluids fill every nook and cranny by expanding from 20 to 40 times their original liquid form. The mixture then cures into dense, rigid foam that prevents virtually any air movement within the insulation system.
A variety of spray foam insulations have been available for over 30 years. During the last 10 years, spray foam insulation has been used extensively in Commercial and Industrial Applications.
In the last 5 years, Residential Consumer Demand has soared due to the ever-increasing price of energy. Studies carried out on structures using spray foam insulation exclusively have confirmed that the extra cost is generally recovered within 5 to 7 years*. It is now an undisputed fact that the benefit of using this superior product far outweighs the higher initial price.
* Cost recovery periods may vary depending on individual energy consumption habits and the area in which the product is used.
* Example: Spray foam insulated basements used as living areas typically result in faster cost recovery.
