Spray polyurethane foam (SPF) is a spray-applied plastic that is widely used to insulate buildings and seal cracks and gaps, making the building more energy-efficient and comfortable. SPF insulation is known to resist heat transfer extremely well, and it offers a highly effective solution in reducing unwanted air infiltration through cracks, seams, and joints.
Air that leaks through your home's envelope − the outer walls, windows, doors, and other openings − wastes a lot of energy and increases your utility costs. A well-sealed envelope, coupled with the right amount of insulation, can make a real difference on your utility bills.
Sealing leaks and adding insulation can improve the overall comfort of your home and help to fix many of these common problems: Reduced noise from outside, less pollen, dust and insects (or pests) entering your home, better humidity control, lower chance for ice dams on the roof/eves in snowy climates.
