Spray foam insulation will help you and your home conserve energy, increase your comfort and lower your heating and cooling bills!
Spray foam insulation is a very effective and efficient way to insulate residential homes, especially the tough to get areas, including sidewalls, attics, basements, crawlspaces, foundations, rim joists, and cantilevers. Spray foam can also be used to insulate garages, polebarns, outbuildings, RVs, trailers, fish houses, and deer stands.
Spray foam insulation is a combination of two composite materials: polyol resin and isocyanate. When these materials are mixed together and sprayed through the tip of a spray foam gun, they expand and harden creating a solid layer of insulation, open-cell and closed-cell. Open-cell spray foam’s cell structure is more porous and is used for interior projects only; used to enhance sound deadening and is vapor permeable because it acts like a sponge and soaks up and holds water.
Closed-cell spray foam’s cell structure consists of gas bubbles that are permanently locked into place and water cannot pass through. Closed-cell spray foam insulation is used for interor and exterior environments and used to increase structural strength and to decrease vapor transmission, making it an ideal and powerful insulator and vapor barrier.
MGT Insulation specializes in closed-cell spray foam insulation.
There are many benefits to closed-cell spray foam insulation
Powerful Insulator: Closed-cell spray foam insulation is the most effective insulation material on the market today. It has the highest R-Value rating of 6 when it is applied in a one-inch layer to bare wood and can mold itself around any obstacle. Closed-cell spray foam insulation will seal every nook and cranny wherever it is applied.
Strong Vapor Barrier: Closed-cell spray foam insulation is applied in a one-inch layer and acts as a vapor barrier to prevent moisture from damaging the building and increases flood resistance to the building.
Increases Structural Strength: When closed-cell spray foam insulation is applied to the foundation, basement, or crawlspaces of buildings, it improves the building’s durability and creates structural integrity.
Airtight Seals: When closed-cell spray foam insulation is applied, it creates an airtight seal, causing less heating and cooling loss from your home and dramatically reduces your energy bill.
