Trusted Spray Foam Insulation Services
Services for spray foam insulation can make your home or business more comfortable and energy-efficient. Spray foam is a type of insulation applied as a liquid and then expands to fill gaps and form an airtight and watertight barrier. This is suitable for walls, crawlspaces and attic insulation.

Spray Foam Options
Spray foam insulation is a popular choice for homeowners looking to improve the energy efficiency of their homes. But did you know that there are two different types of spray foam insulation? They are known as closed-cell and open-cell spray foam insulation, and each has its own unique advantages.
Closed-cell spray foam insulation is a denser and more rigid material that provides a higher level of insulation per inch of thickness. It is ideal for use in areas that require a high level of insulation, such as exterior walls or roofs. Closed-cell spray foam also has excellent moisture resistance, making it a good choice for areas that are prone to moisture damage.
Open-cell spray foam insulation, on the other hand, is a softer and more flexible material that is ideal for use in areas such as interior walls, attics, and crawl spaces. It is less dense than closed-cell spray foam, but it still provides excellent insulation and soundproofing capabilities. Open-cell spray foam insulation is also more affordable than closed-cell insulation, making it a good choice for homeowners on a budget.
Spray Foam R-Values and Building Codes
Spray foam insulation is an excellent method for enhancing the energy efficiency of a residence. However, it is essential to understand R-values and how they apply to the Ontario Building Code to select the best insulation for your needs.
R-value measures the ability of insulation to resist heat flow. The higher the R-value, the more effective the insulation is at retaining heat in the winter and preventing heat gain in the summer. In Ontario, the Building Code stipulates minimum R-values for different types of insulation based on the climate zone in which the home is situated.
Spray foam insulation has a high R-value per inch of thickness, making it an excellent option for spaces with limited volumes, such as walls and attics. Spray foam insulation can help you meet or exceed the R-value requirements specified by the Ontario Building Code when appropriately installed.
