What is Spray Foam Insulation?
Spray foam insulation is your all-in-one solution for air tightness, moisture and vapour control, energy efficiency and a host of other building envelope issues. Although more expensive than the fiberglass product, it has proven to outperform traditional materials in every way. That is why it has quickly become the preferred insulation system for architects, builders and homeowners in Ontario.
The Facts about Spray Foam
Spray foam insulation is a heat-activated polymer made from two different chemicals. It is sprayed through a heated hose which mixes the two. The mixture foams up and expands on contact providing a continuous air barrier on walls, flooring, ceilings, the roof cavity and any space that might need insulation. The foam hardens rapidly and lasts forever. You will never have to replace it. It is typically available as open cell spray foam or closed-cell spray foam. The experienced technicians at Platinum Spray Foam can explain the difference between the two types as well as help you select the best option for your home or commercial building.
