Spray Foam Insulation

Spray Foam Insulation By The Hayes Company
Spray foam insulation is a two-in-one home insulation and air-sealing solution that can help homes and businesses increase comfort and reduce energy consumption. Spray foam insulation expands when applied, creating an air barrier that other forms of insulation (fiberglass and cellulose) cannot. Here at The Hayes Company, we offer crawl space insulation and insulation removal for residential and commercial locations.

The Benefits of Spray Foam Insulation

Spray foam insulation has a myriad of benefits for the homeowner and business owner.
Increased Comfort – Spray foam insulation prevents drafts, improves air quality, and enhances acoustics.
Energy- and Cost-Saving – Spray foam insulation can reduce monthly energy costs 30 to 50 percent. Often, spray foam insulation can allow your family to downsize to a small home heating and air conditioning unit, saving you money and space.
Healthier Air in Your Home – Spray foam insulation seals the home from air movement, helping to reduce pollen, dust, and allergens.
Flawless, Versatile Performance – Spray foam insulation expands 30-100 times its original sprayed-on volume, providing a near flawless air barrier and insulation layer, sealing all crevices in a single, easy step.
Durability to Last a LifetimeOnce applied, spray foam insulation will not shrink, sag, or settle even if it comes into contact with water. Spray foam insulation sticks to a wide of materials, including masonry, cement, metal studs, wood studs, and rooflines.

Open Cell & Closed Cell Spray Foam Insulation By The Hayes Company

Types of Spray Foam Insulation
There are two different types of spray foam insulation, Open Cell Spray Foam and Closed Cell Spray Foam, each with their unique benefits discussed below.

Open cell spray foam 

Open cell spray foam insulation works as an insulator and air barrier. Weighing only 0.5 pounds per cubic foot, open cell spray foam gets its name from its broken cell structure, which allows air to fill the empty space inside the material. The typical R value of open cell foam is 3.7 per inch. Open cell spray foam insulation is vapor permeable, dampens sounds and eliminates air infiltration.

Closed cell spray foam 

Like open cell spray foam insulation, closed cell spray foam works as an insulator and air barrier. An additional feature of closed cell spray foam is that it is solid — much denser than open cell spray foam. The cells of the bubbles remain intact, which makes the material rigid. The closed cell composition and increased density contributes to a higher R-value than that of open cell foam, at a higher price. Higher density allows closed cell spray foam to contribute to building stability during storms and high winds.
