spray foam insulation Farmington

Spray foam Gonz Insulation Farmington is a highly effective solution to save money and improve indoor comfort in commercial and residential buildings. It is installed by trained installers who use specialized spray equipment to fill and seal gaps, cracks, and holes in walls and ceilings. This product can improve air sealing in attics and reduce moisture build up, which helps prevent mold growth. It also increases energy efficiency and can help control HVAC costs.

Spray polyurethane foam (SPF) is made of liquid chemical ingredients that react on contact with water to expand and become a dense, strong, and durable foam. It can expand over 30% of its original size to fill the smallest gaps and holes, providing an efficient and effective air barrier that minimizes thermal loss. It also has the ability to create a custom fit around framing, resulting in an even better seal than fiberglass batts.

Fiberglass batts are pre-cut and can easily be installed into wall studs, attic rafters, and ceiling joists. However, they do not naturally provide an air seal and can lose their R-value over time, resulting in less efficiency. To get the most out of your insulation, it’s important to consider air sealing as well, whether with single component foam, a ‘flash and batt’ approach, strategic use of polyethylene sheets and caulking, or fluid-applied air sealing.

Closed-cell and open-cell spray foam insulation are the most common products available. The closed-cell variety is denser and offers a higher R-Value per inch than the open-cell option. Both types of spray insulation can be installed in homes and commercial buildings, but the type you choose will depend on your individual needs and application.
