What is Spray Foam Insulation?

Spray foam is typically a polyurethane foam that arrives as a two-part mixture. When combined, they create a liquid that is sprayed into wall cavities, floors, ceilings and other voids that require insulation. It expands to fill the cavity completely, and it adheres to nearly any surface, creating an air-tight seal. Available in both open and closed-cell varieties, it offers excellent air sealing and insulating performance.

Because it offers quite high R-values per inch, spray foam insulation is a great choice for areas that have limited space or need the maximum amount of insulation at a cost-effective price. With its superior air-sealing capabilities, it is also ideal for buildings that need maximum protection from air infiltration and heat loss, such as homes in Maine.

How Does Spray Foam Compare to Other Products?

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, open-cell spray foam offers an R-value of R-3.6 to R-4.3 per inch while closed-cell spray foam offers an R-value of R-6.0 to R-7.0 per inch. Open-cell spray foam is comparable in insulation performance to cellulose, fiberglass and mineral wool, with cellulose offering up to R-4.0 per inch, fiberglass up to R-4.3 per inch and mineral wool up to R-4.0 per inch.

At up to R-7.0 per inch, closed-cell spray foam beats the competition handily, plus it offers additional water resistance that makes it a better choice in damp areas over open-cell spray foam, which is moisture-permeable. Both types of spray foam offer an effective air barrier, which must be added to fiberglass, mineral wool, or cellulose.
