Spray foam insulation is a state-of-the-art insulation product that dramatically increases a home's thermal performance. With a superior R-value, and unmatched air sealing capabilities, it reduces air leakage while providing the best thermal performance of any insulation product on the market.
Spray polyurethane foam has an R-value (thermal resistance) of approximately 6 per inch of installed insulation, making it one of the highest performance insulation products on the market. This means that your home will be warmer, and less drafty, even in conventionally framed construction.
Spray polyurethane foam fills all the cracks and gaps within the cavities that it fills, avoiding the common problem of air leakage that plagues other types of insulation such as fiberglass batts. This reduces drafts, as well as prevents infiltration of moisture and harmful gases.
Reduces Moisture and Mold
Because of the superior air sealing properties of SPF (spray polyurethane foam), moisture is less likely to enter your building once it's been insulated with spray foam. This reduces the risk of mold, as well as the risks of rot and structural damage that accompany water infiltration.
Open Cell Foam vs Closed Cell Foam
At The Insulation Man, We offer closed cell spray foam products only. Closed cell provides a superior air and moisture barrier, making it the most effective insulation available for energy performance. Open cell spray foam may be slightly less expensive, however, it has less R-value per inch, is susceptible to water permeation, and does not provide the structural integrity that closed cell spray foam does.

wanted to write you promptly. Your employees were diligent, and appeared to do a very thorough job packing more insulation into our attic spaces. Very clean as well. Can't thank you enough for taking care of this small issue, though it is important to us.
