SPRAY FOAM INSULATION CONTRACTORS
Spray foam insulation is ideal for builders and homeowners looking for an all-in-one home insulating and air sealing solution. Unlike fiberglass insulation, spray insulation foam expands when applied and completely fills a cavity to prevent air leakage and help keep energy bills low. It can also provide additional stability to your home and improve the structural integrity of the building.
Our team has been installing spray foam insulation in homes across Georgetown, Delaware and the Delmarva peninsula since 2002. Insulating and air sealing with spray foam can pay for your insulation investment in a short time.
With so many benefits that come from insulation installation, the only thing left to do is decide which type works best for you and reach out to our spray foam insulation contractors to upgrade your Delaware home.
SPRAY FOAM COMES IN TWO TYPES:
OPEN CELL SPRAY FOAM is less dense, as the cells in the foam are open rather than staying intact. This type of expanding foam insulation has a density of 0.5 pounds per cubic foot. It consists of cells of foam that are not completely closed — instead, the cells are broken and air fills all the “open” space inside the material. Open cell spray foam insulation has an R-value of 3.4 to 4.5 per inch.
CLOSED CELL SPRAY FOAM is more dense than open cell spray foam, as the cells in the foam are closed. This increases the product’s R-value (closed cell spray foam insulation has an R-value of 5.4 to 7.2 per inch) and can contribute to building stability. This type of expandable foam has a density of 2.0 pounds per cubic foot. The cells are fully closed and packed tightly together — and they are filled with gas that helps the foam rise and expand. Closed cell foam is very dense and therefore has greater insulating properties.
