Open Cell Spray Foam Insulation

Over half of your total energy costs come from heating and cooling your home or building, and almost all homes and buildings (even new ones) let too much air escape or penetrate. It’s like turning on the AC in the car with your windows rolled down. Air sealing solves this problem. Also, most homes and buildings have incorrectly installed or insufficient amounts of attic insulation. You wouldn’t brave a Chicago winter without a hat, and neither should your home or building.

Open Cell Spray Foam Insulation for Your Home/Building

A big reason customers choose open cell spray foam insulation, especially over the use of closed cell is due to the lower cost and the flexibility of open cell spray. Open-cell foam will allow water to move through it and dry, and remember insulation is not meant to keep water out. That is not what it is intended for. Open-cell foam is a good choice in hot, humid climates, and under roof sheathing, such as in conditioned attics.

  • Saves on energy costs and can lower your utility bills
  • Typically insulate as much as 50% better than traditional insulation products
  • Can reduce noise
  • Owners can often qualify for state and federal tax deductions

Open Cell vs Closed Cell Foam Insulation

  • Installed at a significantly lower cost than a closed-cell foam in projects targeting the same R-Value. Mainly because it is far less dense.
  • Flexibility allows it to expand and contract better than closed cell insulation
  • Water-blown product maintains a lower GWP
