Spray foam insulation is very beneficial to protecting homes and buildings from the elements, unwanted pests, and decreasing energy costs by keeping the cool air in during summer and the cold out during the winter. SPF is an insulation which begins in a liquid form. When sprayed and applied to the desired area, the foam expands rapidly covering a large area. The spray can get into cracks and small spaces other insulation can’t, and provide complete coverage. The liquid polyurethane transforms into hard, solid foam when dried. The R-Value in spray foam is high preventing moisture build up and protecting from unwanted air from entering. With small cracks and crevices filled pests and cold air have no way to enter into the home or building providing the resident peace of mind. This also lowers energy costs by keeping the home or building at a constant temperature.
Typically foam insulation is used in walls of buildings and homes; however SPF can be used for other purposes. It works well for attics and basements and ceilings. SPF insulates industrial plumbing pipes and tanks along with any building that needs temperature or climate control for example a commercial cold storage facility and/or clean rooms. Using SPF can also extend the life of a roof by preventing thermal bridging and insulating gaps that may occur from fasteners. Spray foam insulation is commonly used in barges, boats, and airplanes, all benefit from the advantages of spray foam.
Spray foam insulation has many benefits for everyone and can provide comfort and peace of mind.

The reality is that the air we breathe contains a certain amount of moisture and there’s nothing we can do to prevent that.
In fact, if the atmosphere inside your home has a humidity level of about 50%, then that’s the ideal range for your own personal health and the longevity of your home. Too much moisture, however, is bad for both your home and your health.
When moisture accumulates inside walls, attics, crawl spaces or ceilings it can and will lead to the growth of molds, and where molds grow insects are sure to follow. The combination of mold growth and the potential for insect infestation can lead to a wide variety of health problems for anyone living inside the property. This can include dangerous respiratory problems for the very old, the very young, or anyone with existing respiratory health problems.
Your property can also suffer structural damage because of unnoticed moisture accumulation. If enough moisture is present inside your home, it can lead to the weakening of wooden support structures and extensive damage to drywall and paint finishes. Drapes and other fabrics will also become slowly water damaged, leaving them with a “musty” odor, which is very difficult to remove.
Moisture In Your Home
The most common cause for moisture building up inside any particular home is because of a water leak somewhere on the property. In most cases water leaks can be traced back to damaged water pipes, or damaged roofing. In situations like these you’ll need to have the damaged plumbing or roofing repaired as quickly as possible.
There’s another way for moisture to slip unseen into your home and it’s through unchecked air currents. As we already mentioned, the air we breathe contains a certain amount of moisture and when a warm air current meets a cool surface the moisture contained in the warm air transforms into a liquid. This is a very gradual process, but because it’s almost invisible you won’t notice the damage in most cases, until it’s too late.
So even if your home seems perfectly well insulated from air drafts and breezes, there’s no guarantee that it is – the exposed areas of your home include crawl spaces, attics, and air ducts. These can be the paths for gallons of unwanted moisture to be deposited inside your home.
