What is Spray Foam Insulation?
Spray polyurethane foam (SPF), commonly known as spray foam, is composed of liquid chemical ingredients which when mixed react and expand 30-60 times the initial volume into a foam-like structure. Previously designed to replace traditional fiberglass insulation in airplanes, spray foam is now used in commercial and residential buildings.
Spray foam expands to fill small spaces and gaps or fit around framing. It’s commonly used in insulation applications for walls and roofing. The thermal resistance of spray form (R-value) is higher than that of fiberglass and other insulating agents making it best fit for the purpose. It is downright the best insulation method you can adopt to improve the comfort of your home or business premises in an energy-efficient manner.
Benefits of using spray foam insulation service in residential and commercial buildings in Ajax.
Spray foam can be manufactured into different types with different densities. When it comes to Spray Foam Insulation services in Ajax, there are two types of spray foam formulations.
Low Density (Open Cell) Spray Foam
Open cell spray foam (ocSPF) is semi-rigid and weighs about half-a-pound per cubic inch when installed. It is sponge-like with a lower R-value of R-3.7 per inch that offers good thermal properties. During expansion and drying, it leaves small open cells that fill with carbon dioxide such that it can be easily crushed by hand after installation.
The air pockets in this spray foam make it suitable for applications that require sound-dampening properties. Although a good air barrier, this type of spray foam is permeable to vapor and moisture. For this reason, its application is restricted to the interior of the building and not the exteriors.
Medium Density (Closed Cell) Spray Foam
Closed cell spray foam (ccSPF) is significantly heavier (2 pounds per cubic inch) and more rigid compared to open cell spray foam. It has closed-cell properties of smaller gas bubbles giving it an enhanced thermal performance of R-7.1 per inch.
Improved density and rigidity in this spray foam act as a full air and water-resistant barrier. It is most suitable for exterior applications in Ajax as it can withstand harsh weather conditions in the long term without requiring any repairs. It will protect your building from water related problems such as mold and mildew.
Where is Spray Foam Insulation Applied?
Do you require flat roof spray foam insulation service in Ajax? Our team of well-trained and experienced professionals will help you in the selection and installation of the best type of insulation for your flat roof. There are three types of insulations for flat roofs:
- Warm deck (warm roof): Installed above the roof deck. This is between the roof deck and the roofing material/membrane. Suitable for damp and cold area applications.
- Cold deck (cold roof): Installed below the roof deck. This leaves a gap for ventilation to prevent condensation that can lead to rot.
- Inverted roof: Insulation is installed above the roofing membrane. It protects the roofing membrane and underlying roof panel from heat and cold.
