Spray foam insulation is a type of polyurethane. The product is applied on site as liquid that quickly expands to fill nooks and crannies, sealing the building envelope. The resulting air seal helps keep your heating and cooling systems working efficiently, reducing energy bills and boosting your home’s value.

There are two types of spray foam: open cell and closed cell. The difference lies in the structure of the foam’s small bubbles (or cells). Open cell insulation contains cells that aren’t completely encapsulated, creating a softer and more flexible material. Closed cell foam has cells that are pressed tightly together, creating a more rigid and stable material.

Both of these options are non-toxic once the spray foam has cured. But when deciding between open or closed-cell spray foam, there are other factors to consider, including climate zone and project details.

Spray foam can be used in attics, basements, crawl spaces, knee walls and overhangs, among other areas. But, it’s best suited for new construction where builders can easily access these hard-to-reach spaces before installing drywall. In older homes, changing the insulation would require demolition that may not be feasible. In these cases, a professional contractor with specialized tools like a boom lift or scissor lift can speed up the application process.
