Which Spray Foam Insulation Is Best

When it comes to choosing the best spray foam insulation for your home, there are several factors to consider. These factors include the type of spray foam insulation, the R-value, and the installation process. In this blog post, we'll outline the different types of spray foam insulation and provide some tips for choosing the best one for your home.

Open-cell Spray Foam Insulation

Open-cell spray foam insulation is a low-density foam that is designed to expand when applied to a surface. It is typically used in interior applications such as walls and ceilings. Open-cell spray foam insulation has an R-value of around 4 per inch and is more affordable than closed-cell spray foam insulation.

Closed-cell Spray Foam Insulation

Closed-cell spray foam insulation is a high-density foam that is designed to provide a complete air barrier when applied to a surface. It is typically used in exterior applications such as roofs and walls. Closed-cell spray foam insulation has an R-value of around 7 per inch and is more expensive than open-cell spray foam insulation.

Cost

Open-cell spray foam insulation is typically more affordable than closed-cell spray foam insulation. However, closed-cell spray foam insulation has a higher R-value and can provide a complete air barrier when applied to a surface.

R-value

The R-value of spray foam insulation is a measure of its thermal resistance. The higher the R-value, the better the insulation. Consider the R-value of the spray foam insulation you are considering and compare it to other types of insulation to ensure you are getting the best value for your money.

Installation Process

The installation process for spray foam insulation can be complex and requires specialized equipment. Choose a professional installer with experience in installing spray foam insulation to ensure a proper installation and maximum effectiveness.
