Open and closed cell foam
In most of our
applications we use closed cell foam for
the following reasons. Closed cell foam
has a higher R-Value than open cell
foam. Depending on the manufacturer
R-Values range from an R-6 to an R-7 per
inch for closed cell foam while open
cell ranges from R-3 to R-4 per inch.
While still having some of the
characteristics as closed cell foam the
open cell is still not as good as closed
cell that’s why we primarily use closed
cell. Closed cell foam adds strength
to the structure it is being applied
to. It also serves as a moisture
barrier along with being a great sound
proofer. We do use open cell foam in
Air moves in and
out of a building through every hole,
crack and crevice. Roughly one third of
air infiltrates through walls, ceiling,
and floors. Adding an advanced
insulation system is necessary to
achieve optimal building performance.
SPF (spray polyurethane foam) is an
advanced insulation system. Spray foam
insulation can maximize a building or
home owners’ investment by sealing the
building envelope to stop conditioned
indoor air from escaping and prevent
unconditioned air from entering a home.
Air exchange in and out of a home is a
leading cause of escalated energy bills.
The mechanical systems that heat and
cool buildings are continuously
operating; reducing extreme temperature
variations saves on the overuse of
mechanical systems and leads to lower
Why use spray foam?
Spray foam can pay for
itself in as little as 3 -5years
depending on application.
Spray foam is an excellent
insulator that outperforms most
everything in its class.
Reduces outside noise
Reduces inside noise if used
in interior walls
Reduces the potential of
MOLD, MILDEW, and other AIRBORNE
Spray foam will not settle,
sag or deteriorate over time as will
other insulation materials.
Reduces the size of HVAC
units needed and the wear put on
Non-Toxic making it safer
and environmentally friendly
Works as a vapor barrier
Can add up to 30% structural
integrity to the project
Commonly Asked Questions
foam do I need open or closed cell?
A: Depending on
your project and budget one or both
foams may be suitable for your needs and
that we will help you decide.
is the foam applied?
A: Spray foam is
applied with a plural component pump
system that heats the raw material as

it will be mixed just before it is
turned into a spray that will be sprayed
into or onto your substrate being that a
wall cavity or roof deck.
foam make my house to airtight?
A: No studies show
that foam will breathe while at the same
time stop drafts and moisture making it
a great vapor barrier.
if I need to work on plumbing or
electrical after my home has been

easy to cut and remove if needed and can
be replaced just as easy.
