When it comes to insulation, you want an option that is both budget-friendly and efficient. Spray foam is a unique wall insulation material that provides many advantages over traditional thermal insulation products. In addition to being cost-effective, spray foam offers better performance and durability than fibreglass batts and cellulose materials such as loose-fill cellulose and blown cellulose. It can be used indoors or outdoors. In fact, most spray foam systems are installed directly into existing concrete slabs.

Why Use Spray Foam?

Besides being an affordable solution for any homeowner, spray foam can reach those almost impossible nooks and crannies in your home, attic, garage, or basement. In fact, when our Spray City team installs our high-quality wall insulation, we make sure we insulate every single space to ensure more energy efficiency and protection for your home. Spray foam, believe it or not, is more than fifty percent more effective than other more expensive traditional insulation products like fibreglass. 

In general, spray foam insulation works best in areas where air movement isn’t necessary like attics, crawl spaces, basements, garages, and unfinished rooms. If you’re looking for something that doesn’t require much space, consider using liquid polyurethane foam insulation. The process involves spraying a liquid polyurethane foam into the wall cavities. Once the foam sets up, it becomes a rigid mass. This creates a barrier against air infiltration and moisture penetration. The superior insulation saves you energy bills and greatly reduces or eliminates any water damage to your home over time. 

Types of Insulation Available Today

There are four main types of residential insulation products on the market: Fiberglass insulation, Mineral Wool Insulation, Cellulose Insulation, and Spray Foam Insulation. These options each have their pros and cons and you should consider what type of insulation best fits your needs. While fibreglass remains a standard for older homes, this type of insulation can be very expensive, difficult to install, and does not provide the same energy efficiency as spray foam. Mineral wool has inconsistent quality control. Both mineral wool and cellulose insulation are prone to mould growth and dampness, especially if not applied professionally.

What is Light-Density Open-Cell Spray Foam?

Light-Density Open-Cell Spray Foam (ocSPF) is the perfect choice for commercial and residential projects.  It is a semi-rigid, sponge-like foam with a spongy appearance. During installation, this foam expands in such a way as to create small, open cells that fill up with CO2 gas. When installed properly, it provides excellent protection against water penetration.

What is Medium-Density Closed-Cell Spray Foam?

Medium-Density Closed-Cell Spray Foam (ccSPF) is are usually applied in areas where there is limited space, such as attics, crawl spaces, and basements. Installers typically spray ccSPF into cavities and voids, and they provide protection against moisture penetration and heat transfer.
