Foam Insulation in San Antonio, Texas
This insulation is made by combining chemicals that react to one another by creating a foam that quickly expands to fill in spaces and insulates by providing a seal against air as well as moisture barrier. Unlike fiberglass and other types of insulation that is formed by layers of material that may not fit tightly into corners and cracks, the foam itself can fit into small cracks and fissures and then hardens quickly supplying a tighter barrier than other types of insulation can. SPF insulation is extremely effective at reducing air infiltration through crack, seams and joints and then provides a solid protective barrier.

Why insulate with spray foam?
There is no better home insulating material that can seal your home from air and moisture intrusion, save on costly utility bills, strengthen your home, and protect your family’s health from dangerous mold, airborne pollutants, and allergens than Spray Foam insulation.
Imagine a draft free energy-efficient home. Spray Foam expands up to 100 times its original size to fill every corner of a building’s envelope for thermal insulation and air sealing. With traditional insulation, spaces and gaps in homes that aren’t filled can leak enough air everyday to fill two air blimps!
If you have an existing home or commercial building and need to insulate your walls, spray installation is the way to go. To insulate walls with traditional insulation material you will need to tear out the drywall in order to apply the insulation, you then have to go to the expense to re-putting up drywall. With spray insulation, you don’t have to tear down your inside walls to insulate between your walls since you can just drill small holes through which to insulate between your walls. Smaller holes are much easier and cheaper to repair than having to put up entirely new walls.
If you live in an older home and are experience problems with keeping your home at a comfortable temperature or find you’re paying higher utility bills then it may be time to update your attic’s insulation. Instead of replacing that fiberglass or cellulose insulation over and over again, why not solve the problem once and for all with spray foam insulation. Spray foam insulation expands and then hardens so it will fill in every nook and crannies and won’t shift or thin once it is dry. In addition, foam insulation will block holes and actually prevent mice and squirrels from gaining entrance into your attic.
Crawl Space Insulation
If your home has a crawlspace and it lacks insulation or is under insulated chances are your home’s flooring is cold during the winter months and you are paying more for your heating and cooling bills that you need to be paying. 15% of a building heat loss is lost through under insulated crawl spaces. Spray foam is the ideal way to insulate your craw space. When insulating a crawl space either the outside walls of the crawlspace or the underside of the floor should be insulated. If your crawlspace contains heat ducts then it is best to insulate the outside walls and lay plastic.
