Spray Foam Alternatives

Newly sprayed foam insulation on ceiling

Properties from all over the United States have experienced the many benefits that come with insulation. Its primary function is to help reduce your energy losses by balancing the temperature within your living spaces, but depending on where you install them, they can provide additional advantages from soundproofing your walls to vermin-proofing your crawl spaces and attics. However, with the various types of insulation materials available today, picking one out can be a problem because sometimes even the most common type of substance will not give your properties any justice at all.

The Disadvantages of Common Spray Foam Materials

Among the different insulating materials, spray foam insulation has become a popular choice. Nevertheless, do not immediately assume that because everyone is using it, it is the right one for you. Spray foam insulation encounters a lot of problems, and if you decide to equip your properties with this option, there is a big chance that you will receive devastating results.

Made with hazardous chemicals

The most common type of spray foams are made with diphenyl diisocyanate. This chemical, when constantly exposed to, can generate asthma and various lung ailments, and create an uncomfortable living atmosphere – especially to those who are sensitive.

Not thick or strong enough

Spray foams have higher R-value per square inch. Because of this, most installers will only fill out the cavity 2” to 3” high. This, however, is not enough to aid you in your energy consumption woes – wasting money on something you thought that could help you.

Another thing to worry about is its strength. Improper mixing can result to weak installation and in due time, you will see that the spray foam will slowly fall out of its place.

Sometimes installers will rely on their vision too much, and less on their insulation know-how. During the installation process, it is possible that even though the spray foam has completely covered the surface, it was not able to penetrate the problematic areas like air leaks and other critical areas.
