  1. Higher R-value with Spray Foam Insulation

Spray foam insulation, when installed properly, is a more effective insulation than its competitors. A higher R-value means lower energy bills and comfortable indoor temperatures during the hot Arkansas summer.

Unlike cellulose and fiberglass, spray foam insulation bonds with the studs and walls. This provides a nearly air-tight sealant for the building. Spray foam can fill cracks and fit into oddly shaped parts of the building.

  1. Proper airflow with Spray Foam Insulation

Nearly air-tight? Buildings need to breathe. An air-tight sealant would compromise the structural integrity of the building and cause the air inside to become stale. Spray foam is designed to allow your building to breathe. It is flexible enough to accommodate movement in wooden studs and walls over the years.

Open-cell spray foam is designed to breathe just enough to allow moisture through without compromising the R-value of the insulation. Closed-cell spray foam is waterproof. It is used in any area where mold and mildew is a concern, like a crawl space beneath your building.

  1. Longer lasting materials

When we fill the walls of our homes, we want it to last. Cellulose and fiberglass insulation settles over the years. Reducing their R-value. Eventually, this type of insulation will need to be replaced. Spray foam is a smarter, long-term investment. It will not shrink over the years. If installed properly, it will last as long as the structure.

  1. Peace and quiet

Not only does spray foam keep your building cool in the summer and warm in the winter, it creates a peaceful environment. The density of spray foam insulation allows it to absorb sound better than cellulose and fiberglass.
