Due to its tried and trusted superior insulating properties, closed cell foam is the preferred option for most of our customers. It provides optimal benefits with high R-value and acts as an effective vapour barrier while adding structural strength. Its common applications are found in home energy efficiency improvements such as basements, crawl spaces and rim joist areas as well as in commercial and industrial structures and new home builds.
We will work with you to determine the best type of insulation for your specific needs.
When choosing spray foam or any other type of insulation, it is important to note that they are not all created equal!
Open cell spray foam insulation
Open cell spray foam is a lower density, nonstructural insulation that offers an R-Value of around R-3.75 per inch. It is not considered to provide a vapour barrier and should never be applied below grade.
Closed cell spray foam insulation
Closed cell spray foam is a medium density, structural foam that provides a complete moisture/vapour/air barrier and boasts much higher performance than any other type of insulation at R-6 to R7 per inch.
