What is Spray Foam Insulation?
Spray foam is a material that combines the chemicals isocyanate and polyol resin. These two chemicals expand to more than thirty times their original volume when they are mixed. This creates a strong seal for your property. It is widely used to insulate residential and commercial properties, which involves sealing cracks in the attic, crawl space, and other vulnerable areas of your property.
The Importance of Spray Foam Insulation in Wisconsin
Wisconsin experiences cold winters; this is no secret. Your property needs protection from cold weather, storms, and other natural risks. Therefore, we encourage all home and business owners to stay up-to-date with their insulation needs. However, why should you specifically consider (and choose) spray foam? Well, there are a number of unique benefits. In particular, here are some of the key advantages that spray foam insulation in Wisconsin provides that fiberglass, cellulose, and other types of insulation materials do not provide to the same extent:
Reduce energy costs – According to the EPA, spray foam can save homeowners up to 15% in heating and cooling costs each month.
Maintain an ideal temperature – Indoor air stays inside and outdoor air stays outside with reliable insulation from Kinsman Coatings. This improves the overall comfort of your home or commercial property.
Reduced carbon footprint – Energy savings also means a reduction in your carbon emissions. Spray foam is simply more eco-friendly.
Preserve building structure – Protecting the structure and foundation of your property should be a top priority. Spray foam helps ensure your building is well-protected and not vulnerable to water or pest infiltration.
Protection from mold and mildew – Mold and mildew can significantly damage (if not destroy) entire areas of your home, including your attic, walls, roof, and crawl space.
Long-lasting material – Spray foam insulation in Wisconsin is built to last. In fact, it may even last an entire lifetime. On average, you can expect spray foam to last for more than 50 years (at least).
Increased home value – A primary “drawback” to spray foam is the cost of installation since the materials cost more. However, in many cases, there is substantial return value in the increased value of your property and reduced energy costs.
The Different Types of Spray Foam Insulation
In general, spray foam insulation in Wisconsin is more reliable than alternative forms, regardless of the type of spray foam material you use. However, there are two different types to choose from, and the type of material you ultimately choose can play a role in the specific benefits you receive. Notably, the two primary types are open cell spray foam and closed cell spray foam.
Open Cell Spray Foam Insulation
Open cell spray foam is lighter and expands much more than closed cell spray foam. This helps keep the costs down as less of the material is needed to fill the same amount of space. Of course, although it is not as dense and protective as closed cell spray foam insulation, it is still widely considered to be far more reliable than fiberglass or blown-in cellulose materials. One unique and notable advantage that open cell spray foam has (in addition to a lower installation price) is noise control. You can create an incredibly quiet home or business by choosing this option.
Closed Cell Spray Foam Insulation
Closed cell spray foam insulation is denser and heavier than its counterpart. This makes it the most beneficial type of insulation. Specifically, you can expect improvements in your energy costs, interior comfort, pest prevention, and moisture (and water) prevention. It is excellent at noise control as well, but it may not offer the same level of noise cancellation as open cell spray foam. Closed cell spray foam is also incredibly durable and, in many cases, lasts for more than 50 years before it needs a significant repair or replacement.
When to Consider Insulation Replacement in Wisconsin
New insulation is recommended anytime your existing insulation leaves your property vulnerable. On average, home insulation lasts between 15 and 40 years (depending on the material you choose). If it has been several decades since the last time your insulation was serviced or replaced, then you may need new insulation. Here are several signs that indicate a possible need for spray foam insulation in Wisconsin:
- Higher than usual energy costs
- Signs of pest infestation (i.e. chewing, droppings)
- Mold and mildew growth
- A noisy interior of your property
- A reduction in air quality
