What is Spray Foam Insulation?

Spray foam is one of the most efficient and modern insulation methods available on the market today. With the costs of energy bills rising every year, no matter which provider you choose, consumers are seeking alternative methods to help warm their home. At South West Insulation Solutions, Ltd., we recommend to customers keen to reduce the costs of their utilities that they have our spray foam installed into their property.

Residential Applications

The benefits of an environmentally friendly home are far reaching. Both builders and occupants can enjoy greater comfort, while an active role in reducing greenhouse gases helps protect the environment. A properly sealed home greatly reduces both carbon emissions and the amount of oil consumed to produce electricity, resulting in a more green friendly structure.

Spray polyurethane foam insulation offers unparalleled waterproofing and air sealing properties, making it a potential key component in a home durability management system. Its high R-value per inch and valuable performance characteristics can contribute to high levels of energy efficiency for a structure.

Air Barrier

Spray foam insulation creates a continuous seal to prevent conditioned indoor air from escaping a structure, while stopping unconditioned air from entering. This movement of air is a main cause of unnecessarily high energy bills.

Perimeter Walls

Racking strength and wall shear can be strengthened by up to three times when closed-cell foam is used, as opposed to more conventional materials in framed walls.

Attics

Without proper insulation, structures lose large amounts of energy via air exchange through attics and roofs.

Interior Insulation

The physical characteristics of spray foam can improve sound attenuation of sound wall assemblies. Spray foam systems have proven to be an effective means of reducing noise and controlling sound transmission.

Exterior Subgrade

Closed-cell spray foam can be a core component of moisture and thermal management systems for external subgrade foundation. The foam damp proofs the foundation, while contributing to increased overall energy efficiency.

Commercial Applications

Sustainable structures offer a number of benefits to both the owners and the occupants. An environmentally friendly building lets you play an active part in reducing greenhouse gases, and counteracting global warming.

Spray Polyurethane Roofing:

● Lowers your energy costs more than alternative insulation systems
● Provides protection against hail damage and wind uplift
● Creates a seamless monolithic roof system with effective waterproofing
● Provides the highest R-values per inch

Protective Speciality Coatings

An application of an elastomeric protective lining to a surface can reduce UV degradation. The solution is effective on surfaces in food processing plants, storage containers, and various other containment units.
