Spray Foam Insulation installers in Kerry, Cork and Limerick
Spray foam is a type of insulation that is sprayed in place through a gun. Polyurethane and Isocyanate foams are applied as a two-component mixture that comes together at the tip of a gun, and forms an expanding foam. Cementitious foam is applied in a similar manner but does not expand. Spray foam insulation is sprayed onto concrete slabs, into wall cavities of an unfinished wall, against the interior side of the boards, or through holes drilled in the boards or drywall into the wall cavity of a finished wall.
Advantages of Spray Foam Installations
- Blocks airflow by expanding and sealing off leaks, gaps and penetrations. (This can also keep out bugs or other vermin)
- Can serve as a semi-permeable vapor barrier with a better permeability rating than plastic sheeting vapor barriers and consequently reduce the buildup of moisture, which can cause mold growth.
- Can fill wall cavities in finished walls without tearing the walls apart (as required with batts).
- Works well in tight spaces (like loose-fill, but superior).
- Provides acoustical insulation (like loose-fill, but superior).
- Expands while curing, filling bypasses, and providing excellent resistance to air infiltration (unlike batts and blankets, which can leave bypasses and air pockets, and superior to some types of loose-fill. Wet-spray cellulose is comparable.).
- Increases structural stability (unlike loose-fill, similar to wet-spray cellulose).
- Can be applied in small quantities.
