The science of how all components of a building work together has become known as Building Science or a Systems Approach. Failure to design and construct homes in which all building components work effectively together has led to an escalation in building failures, which, in turn, is costing homeowners, builders and insurance carriers enormous amounts of money. Many insurance professionals predict that insurers will begin developing programs designed to separate builders into ''tiers'' of risk. The best risk management programs will produce the best rates and fewer exclusions. A good risk management program includes developing total quality management, green building and healthy house capabilities to improve performance and reduce liability exposures.
Spray foam insulation provides both a flexible and soft finish; integrating well with other building components to improve the performance of the building envelope. Spray foam functions as an air barrier and as thermal and sound insulation. Spray foam insulation supports the performance of other building materials and systems.
Spray foam insulation considers the whole-building approach - safeguarding against building failure by delivering advanced moisture management and improved indoor air quality. Its effective air infiltration control allows for improved HVAC management and rightsizing. Controlling airflow through the building envelope is a key variable in minimizing the potential for moisture accumulation and mold. For builders, the consequences of not controlling airflow and mold/moisture problems can lead to unhappy homeowners, legal problems, insurance issues and decreased profits.
