Homeowners have easily taken to spray foam as a solution for insulating their homes. Foam All Spray Foam is the area leader in residential and commercial spray foam. We’ve found numerous applications for open and closed cell spray foam for commercial businesses, municipalities, and industrial settings including:
Open foam spray foam is full of cells that aren’t totally encapsulated. This means that they are left open on purpose. Because of these, the foam is more flexible and softer. It is less dense than closed cell spray foam. Open foam has an R-value of around 3.5 per inch and while this is lower than closed cell spray foam, open foam offers great expansion so it can usually be applied in one coat. Therefore it is considered the faster, more flexible solution.
Closed-cell spray foam is denser and has a higher R-value of around 6.0 per inch. This makes it better at keeping the heat in our out. It may take more than one coat to apply. It is a more robust choice when insulating a space with the R-value being almost twice that open-cell spray foam. Because the cells are closed it can also act as a vapor barrier to water and moisture and help keep water out of a structure.
Both options have benefits over traditional insulation solutions such as:
