Adding spray foam attic insulation to new construction will prevent energy loss and improve your home’s comfort year-round. The insulation is sprayed between the studs of walls and expands to fill all gaps and spaces for an air-tight seal that protects against moisture, pests, and allergens.
Foam insulation is a type of polyurethane and has a high R-value. It is sprayed on and dries quickly to create an air-tight seal, improve a home’s energy efficiency, and increase its structural integrity. It can be applied to homes, buildings, Quonsets, steel structures, shop, cabins and pole barns.
It is also very durable and provides tough protection that stops condensation, stabilizes temperatures and helps to protect pipes, underskids, and well heads. Spray foam is also used to insulate tanks, boats, sewage ejection pits, chemical tanks and pipes, sheds, garages and more.
Eco-Friendly Comfort: The Sustainable Choice of Spray Foam Insulation in Lethbridge, AB
If you are renovating an existing home or building, spray foam insulation can be added to the attic and wall space and to the crawl space as well. It will add an extra layer of protection against the Alberta weather and reduce your energy costs as a result.
The R-value of spray foam is not only higher than fiberglass or cellulose but it also remains at a constant R-value compared to traditional insulations. It is a long-lasting insulation that can last as long as the structure itself.
A quality spray foam insulation will not require an additional vapor barrier unlike traditional insulation like cellulose and fiberglass. A vapor barrier is necessary for other types of insulation to keep out moisture and condensation, however spray foam insulation will create an air seal that does not allow moisture to enter or escape.
