Spray Foam Insulation Shrinkage 419-469-2011
http://insulationtoledo.com Spray foam insulation has been thought to be the most effective type of insulation. And, in certain situations, it is a good insulation. But recent studies have brought some negative aspects to spray foam, and these are facts that we feel homeowners should at least be aware of as they’re considering insulating their homes.
Spray foam insulation fills the space where it’s sprayed. As it dries (or “cures”), it shrinks. Along the outside edges of where the foam is applied, channels are created. These channels allow the warm air from inside the house to rise and flow up through these newly created channels.
Spray foam insulation is one of the more expensive forms of insulation. When you take into account this shrinkage that spray foam has, the result is you that actually end up paying more, for less insulation! Think about that for a moment.
In addition to the expense, there are some health risks that have been assoicated with foam insulation. Something to consider: When spray foam is applied, insulation installers must wear special suits and respirators! That alone should tell you something about the potential health concerns.
Also, when foam insulation is applied, the homeowners have to be away from the home from anywhere from 7 hours to as long as 3 days, depending upon the material and manufacturer’s specifications.
Spray foam can be an effective form of insulation, but in very specific circumstances. At Insulation Toledo, we use many different forms of insulation, including cellulose insulation, fiberglass insulation and, yes, even spray foam insulation, in particular situations.
