Spray Foam Insulation – Why Hire a Professional?

Spread the love

Spray foam insulation is an effective air barrier that stops heat from escaping in the winter and stopping drafts in the summer. This helps reduce your energy costs all year round. It also prevents moisture in the walls, which can lead to mold and other problems. Spray foam is also durable and does not compress, sag or settle over time, like other types of insulation such as fiberglass batts or blown-in cellulose.

It takes an experienced professional to properly install spray foam insulation. It requires special skills and equipment to mix the chemicals, apply it evenly and ensure that it adhere correctly to your walls. Professionals will be able to complete the job faster and more neatly than homeowners, and they’ll know how much to apply for optimal insulation performance. They can also use their knowledge to insulate complex areas where pipes or wires are located.

Maximizing Energy Efficiency: The Role of Spray Foam Insulation

Homeowners who choose to apply spray foam themselves should be aware that the product contains volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and isocyanates. These are powerful irritants to eyes and can irritate the gastrointestinal and respiratory tracts if inhaled or in direct contact with skin. They can also sensitize the worker and lead to asthma attacks if exposed again and again. Newer generation spray foams are much less toxic and have shorter curing times.

Whether you choose to do it yourself or hire a professional, spray foam insulation is an excellent investment for your home, pole barn or commercial building. The cost of the materials is far outweighed by the savings you’ll see on your monthly energy bills and reduced repairs or pest control costs.
