Spray Foam products are extremely versatile. Manufacturers have optimized products to maximize performance in different areas of a home or building. Spray foam products can create an effective air barrier, form a continuous insulation system, and provide a barrier to moisture in the building envelope. Insulating and sealing your home with spray foam will limit drafts where it is applied and keep your home a consistent temperature all year long – making your home more comfortable. With spray foam, builders can lower construction costs, meet or exceed today’s stringent building code requirements, and provide customers with the benefits of spray foam.

Whether it’s a home or office building, strip mall or corner store, owners are concerned about building performance and energy efficiency. Spray foam can help builders provide long-term value to their customer. With spray foam, customers can enjoy the many benefits listed above and live in comfortable, draft-free homes or buildings.
The Spray Polyurethane Foam Alliance (SPFA) conducted a life cycle assessment of spray foam insulation. The results of the study show that the energy and environmental benefits from spray foam insulation used in new residential construction and commercial roofing retrofits far outweigh the embodied energy and embodied environmental impacts.
