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.
