Types of Spray Foam Insulation

The best thing you could do for your family and your home is getting your house insulated. From lowering the energy usage to enhancing the structural integrity of your walls and roofs, insulation will make your home energy efficient, comfortable and a healthy space conducive to your wellbeing.

When it comes to SPF or spray foam insulation, there are essentially two types- Open Cell Foam and Closed Cell Foam. Understanding the difference between the two will help you understand which type of SPF will suit your needs better.

Open Cell Foam

This type of insulation is primarily used on walls. Even though it is commonly used on outer walls, it can also be used on inner walls not only to provide insulation, but as an effective sound dampener between rooms. Thinking media room? Absolutely right! This is because it has about twice the sound resistance in normal frequency ranges as compared to closed-cell. It is also lightweight and pliable, making it extremely easy to work with.Open cell spray foam insulation is known to have a very high expansion rate, as much as by 100 at times. This makes it ideal for residential structures since it can effectively seal nooks, crannies and crevices in attics, open wall cavities, crawl spaces, and rim joints too. If applied properly, it will keep your home insulated for a very long time.

Closed Cell Foam

Closed cell foam is rigid, firm, and dense and therefore durable. It’s durability makes it perfect for insulating exposed walls since it is not easily prone to damage on impact. Though closed cell foam has low to minimal expansion ability it is still an effective air barrier. It is also 100% moisture impermeable as opposed to open cell foam. This means it will not allow water to move through it. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) identifies closed cell spray foam as a flood-resistant material, making it an ideal option for homes in heavy rainfall, snow or hurricane prone regions. Closed cell foam insulation has an R-value of 6.0 to 7.0 per inch which is why it is considered the No. 1 insulation for a home. It can greatly reduce the heat from the attic during the hot summer months and keep out the cold in winter.

What Works Best Where

Open cell foam is best suited for application in residential structures especially above grade in roof lines, exterior walls, and attic floors. It is also great for areas that need an effective sound dampener. Closed cell foam works incredibly well below grade in basements and crawl spaces. It is also commonly used in commercial and industrial projects, in exterior applications and for insulating metal buildings and pole barns.
