Spray Foam vs. Traditional Insulation

Spray foam insulation is now the superior alternative to traditional fiberglass insulation. The high air permeability of traditional insulation allows air to easily pass through walls where gaps and seams exist. Differences between interior and exterior temperatures create convection currents in walls and ceilings reducing the thermal performance of traditional insulation.

The benefits of spray foam insulation far outweigh traditional fiberglass insulation, as outlined here.

Reducing Energy Costs with Technological Innovation

In comparison to traditional fiberglass insulation, innovative spray foam insulation serves both as an energy-efficient solution, while also offering a cost-savings and a return on your investment. 

Spray foam insulation out-performs traditional fiberglass insulation in every measurable category, and will remain intact and last for the life of the home or building. Spray foam will continue to efficiently insulate, whereas traditional fiberglass sags and settles, causing it to no longer perform at its optimum R-value.

In addition to reducing rising costs, many homeowners are also environmentally concious, and along with other measures are actively making a conscious decison to utlize recycled and repurposed products.
