Spray foam insulation differs from its predecessors because of its ability to expand to completely fill in any gaps or holes.
This helps provide a barrier to water vapor and leaks -- through each kind of spray foam does this at different rates. As a reliable home insulation and way to decrease energy costs, basement spray foam insulation is a necessary installation for any homeowner.
This .4-1/2lb/ft spray foam insulation tends to be composed of more than 50% open-cells. This means that the cells making up the foam are still open leaving room for air to pass through and creating soft and weak spray foam. This open concept also allows for water to freely flow into and throughout creating less of a weather barrier than some consumers may want.
With its sponge-like appearance, it provides a softer look that some homeowners may prefer. However, this open-cell spray foam has a high permeability to moisture vapor, making it likely to cause moisture issues.
Closed-cell spray foam insulation is the answer for the mold-free enthusiast. This spray foam insulation is considered as one of the most trustworthy and efficient materials with a high R-value and a low permeability to moisture vapor and highly water resistant.
With its 2lb/ft density, it offers optimal insulation and strength for most applications because of its tightly packed cell formation. As a rigid and strong material, it's known to actually strengthen wall racking by two to three times its original strength.
