Spray foam insulation seals cavities and cracks by moving through any openings and physically expanding.
Insulation is a critical material used in the construction of all types of buildings. This material helps to prevent air from escaping through small gaps and cracks in the exterior walls. However, various types of insulation exist, and certain types offer better energy efficiency than others. At 31-W Insulation, we strive to provide the best type of insulation for every client we serve in and around Mason, Tennessee. When efficiency is a top consideration and priority, one of the best options available is spray foam insulation.
Spray foam insulation works well for new construction and renovation projects. It can also be added to existing walls to help boost the efficiency of the space. Spray foam insulation seals cavities and cracks by moving through any openings and physically expanding. The result is an airtight and watertight seal that will restrict air loss while reducing the risk of moisture damage in your space. Our technicians often recommend spray foam insulation when a building is lacking in energy efficiency and the owner wants to improve the R-value. We can also install it when replacing old, outdated, or deteriorated insulation in an older structure.
This type of insulation is offered in two main types, which are closed-cell and open-cell foam. Each type has its pros and cons, and our technicians can help determine which will be the right fit for your project. When tackling a job that involves spray foam insulation, we use products from Icynene, Demilec USA, and Johns Manville, which are leading manufacturers in the industry.
