SPRAY POLYURETHANE FOAM (SPF) is an insulation and sealant like no other. It can form a continuous air barrier on walls, roofs, around corners, and on many surfaces in and around a home or building. It is created at the jobsite by mixing two liquids that react very quickly, expanding on contact to create rigid foam. It not only insulates, but seals gaps, and some foams can form a barrier against moisture and vapor.
By creating a tight barrier around a building, SPF helps prevent hot and cold air, moisture and vapor from infiltrating a building’s comfortable interior environment. SPF insulation is known to resist heat transfer extremely well, and it offers a highly effective solution in reducing unwanted air infiltration through cracks, seams and joints.
Spray foam is a high quality, versatile insulation product that can be added to a new home or installed during a renovation or retrofit job. It is a multi-purpose product that insulates, seals and acts as an air barrier. Certain types of spray foam can act as a moisture barrier, weather barrier, or even as a sound barrier.
