Frequently Asked Questions
Does Spray Foam Insulation Improve Indoor Air Quality?
Yes it does. Spray foam insulation actually creates a sealed thermal envelope around your home by conforming to and then filling each cavity, crack and void in any surface to which it is applied. By filling these voids you seal your house against wind, dust, moisture, pollen, spores, insects, mold, allergens ... and even noise ... and as such, insulating your home with spray foam provides a healthier, quieter, draft and insect-free indoor environment with no harmful emissions that can cause allergic reactions.
Does Spray Foam Insulation Reduce Condensation?
Yes it does. Most condensation in a buiding occurs when warm, moist air from inside the building is exchanged with cold, dry air from inside an insulation cavity. As the moisture in the air condenses it forms dew within the insulation. Because foam insulation forms an air seal, this air movement and subsequent condensation is eliminated completely.
Can Spray Foam Insulation Cause Electrical Wiring Problems?
Absolutely not. Foam insulation has been thoroughly tested and passed as being of no concern by all the electrical authorities. It will NOT cause any electrical wiring to overheat nor is it in any way corrosive or harmful to any metal surfaces.
How Long Does Spray Foam Insulation Last?
Once professionally installed, spray foam insulation will last for the life of the house.
Can Spray Foam Insulation Be Installed After Initial Home Construction?
Yes it can. On existing homes, spray foam insulation can be installed to the attic, roof line and to any sub-flooring to seal in the house. Any existing, interior wall insulation is typically left in place.
