Why is Spray Foam Insulation Better Than Traditional Insulation?

Spray foam insulation is the perfect alternative to traditional insulation methods, such as fibre glass and cellulose insulation. What sets spray foam apart is the fact that it expands to create an air tight barrier, covering and sealing the surface completely. This prevents the dissipation of heat and removes the chance of mould and dampness. The investment in this new high quality insulation will save money with heating and maintaining the house in the long term.

Will Spray Foam Cause My Timbers To Rot?

No. Open celled foam is breathable, when applied to any surface it allows any moisture present to dry out through evaporation, this is important as timber and masonry surfaces need to breathe to ensure that no damp or rot problems are caused, where as closed cell foam is used when moisture breathe ability is not a requirement such as on metal. However if your timbers are already damp or have some form of rot or woodworm they should be treated and dried first.

What is Spray Foam Insulation?

Spray Foam Insulation is an insulation and air barrier material that is applicable to lofts, walls, under floors, ceilings, barns, boats, warehouse, commercial properties and seals it against air movement. When sprayed onto the desired surface in a liquid form, spray foam expands and fills all gaps, nooks and crannies. It minimises air infiltration and moisture entrapment, preventing drafts, condensation, cold spots and energy loss.

Why Should I Choose an Accredited Installer?

Choosing an accredited installer is important because you will be dealing with licensed contractors who have been approved and have extensively trained installers, as well as receive a manufacturers warranty for peace of mind. This way you can guarantee the work will be done right from the beginning, saving you more money and problems in the long run.
