Spray Foam Benefits
Why Use Spray Foam?
Why use spray foam instead of other conventional insulations? Spray foam insulates and air seals the building's exterior in one application. Conventional insulations can't say this.
Spray foam insulation achieves a perfect fit every time eliminating voids and gaps between other building elements reducing air infiltration thus reducing energy loss. It doesn't sag, settle or deteriorate like other conventional insulations.
Spray foam insulation provides major cost savings over conventional insulations:
- Reduced thermal load leads to reduced heating and cooling unit sizes. This reduction in thermal load is achieved through higher R values over conventional insulations and the sealing qualities of spray foam.
- Decreased exterior wall depth means reduced material costs. With conventional insulations, a 2x6 exterior wall is needed to obtain the highest possible overall R value. Structurally only 2x4 walls are required. Spray foam provides higher R values in less space.
Other key benefits of spray foam include overall building comfort through moisture control, indoor air quality, sound reduction and inhibited mold growth. Spray foam is not only ideal for new residential, commercial and industrial construction but equally suited for all types of additions and open cavity remodels as well as pre-engineered metal buildings and machine sheds. Critchfield Sprayfoam also applies exterior damp proofing to concrete foundations and basements as well as roof coating systems.
Durable, lightweight, reduces energy costs, white in color for a cool roof system, and an outstanding reroofing choice.
