However, it’s important to choose the right spray foam for each space. We have a team of highly trained customer support staff that can help you find the right product for your project.

The location of a building and its climate zone play an important role in determining the R-value needed for proper insulation. The building’s ventilation, wall thickness, and roof design also impact the R-value required. It’s crucial to consult the Department of Energy’s R-value chart and choose the appropriate R-value for each area of a home or commercial space.

The Installation Process of Spray Foam Insulation | Foam Expert Group

The R-value of foam insulation is the measure of the amount of heat that it can withstand per inch. However, this measurement isn’t the only factor that should be considered when selecting a type of foam. Choosing the right R-value for your home or commercial space isn’t enough — you need to consider the air seal created by each type of foam as well.

Spray foam can act as both insulation and an air seal, closing the nooks and crannies that let heat escape and cause high energy bills. However, choosing the wrong type of spray foam or improperly installing it can lead to moisture problems like rotted framing and toxic mold. Underqualified contractors often sell spray foam as an easy DIY solution to homeowners without disclosing the risks involved. Poor application can result in extensive damage, costing homeowners tens of thousands of dollars for remediation and repair costs.
