What Makes Spray Foam So Effective?

Foam is much more effective than traditional insulation products, because it is applied as a liquid, and then expands as a foam 20 to 30 times its original liquid size in seconds.  As it expands, it conforms to and fills in every single nook, cranny, crevice, hole, crack, and gap to create a continuous thermal envelope.  Spray foam creates a complete seal against air infiltration, the number one source of energy loss.  This innovative insulation adheres to any clean, dry surface and will not shrink, settle, or disintegrate.  Since Fiber Insulations like Fiberglass and Cellulose are settling materials, they cannot seal from stud to stud or around outlets and other penetrations.  In addition, Fiberglass and Cellulose can lose their insulation value if water or moisture invade the wall cavity.  As a Code Approved Vapor Barrier, Spray Foam can actually help eliminate moisture problems in a wall cavity.  Spray Foam is an inert substance and will not support mold growth.
