The increasing incidence of moisture and mold intrusion are the two major causes of building failure. Both culprits, moisture and mold, have spawned thousands of property damage cases now pending in U.S. courts. This litigation spreads a broad net in seeking damages, targeting developers, architects, engineers, general contractors and specialty contractors, as well as insurance companies.
Fortunately, the Building Science community is becoming more knowledgeable about the physics of buildings, and they can now identify the factors that can shorten the life of a building. Day-to-day moisture damage from poor design, construction or maintenance tops the list.
Building scientists have begun to place a significant emphasis on creating walls and ceilings with effective air barriers. Why? Because air barriers provide a triple benefit for the trades, design professionals and their clients in greening homes:
This is what makes open-cell foam insulation stand out from the rest; delivering the total solution with both insulation and air barrier properties. Open-cell foam insulation adheres to the construction material (regardless of shape or detailing complexity) and air-seals to ensure optimal air tightness - without the need for excess sealing material. Spray foam insulation is a high-performance material that addresses both you and your client's concerns about preserving the life of a building and the systems within it. The expansive properties of spray foam allows the insulation to fully integrate with other building components to deliver superior indoor air quality, increased energy efficiency, durability and comfort.
