When Is Spray Foam Insulation Ideal?

With so many types of insulation to choose from, you might wonder if spray foam (or foamed-in-place insulation) is right for the project you have in mind. Here are the top examples of when to use spray foam insulation:

Use Spray Foam When Space Is Tight

Spray foam provides the most efficient thermal resistance, or R-value, of any insulation out there. Some homes insulated with spray foam offer twice the R-value per inch of thickness of traditional batt insulation. This means if you don’t have much room to spare, spray foam is a good choice.

Use Spray Foam in Irregularly Shaped Areas

Traditional batts and rolls come in standard dimensions to work between joists and studs built to code. If you’re working in an irregularly shaped area, spray foam insulation saves you the hassle of cutting batts to fit.

Use Spray Foam to Seal Penetrations

Before laying down insulation on the attic floor, you should seal penetrations first. Air leaks around floor and wall penetrations are a leading cause of energy loss, but spray foam seals these holes right up. You can then insulate the rest of the freshly sealed attic floor using spray foam or another type of insulation.

Use Spray Foam as a Moisture Barrier

More than just air can pass through holes and cracks in the crawlspace. Seal up these gaps with spray foam for an impermeable moisture barrier. Spray foam helps repel water rather than absorbing it like other building materials do, so it prevents humidity problems and can even save your crawlspace from flooding. Spray foam insulation also helps deter mold growth.

Use Spray Foam for Incredible Energy Savings

While spray foam has several unique applications that no other type of insulation can accomplish, you can also simply use it in place of batts and rolls for greater insulating power. Energy-efficient homes tend to use spray foam because it provides superior insulating performance compared to other options.
