Spray foam works by forming little pockets of air. These pockets fill in small nooks and crannies that traditional fiberglass and other types of insulation can’t reach. This makes it an extremely effective insulator that is very difficult to penetrate with moisture or air movement.

The foam is applied to the wall with a hose attached to a canister of spray foam. The chemicals in the canister, polyol resin and isocyanate, react to create foam when sprayed into the wall cavity. The foam then expands, creating a seal around joists and studs in your walls, eliminating air leakage and making the home more comfortable.

Unlike fiberglass, spray foam is very flexible and won’t sag over time or shrink like cotton or wool. It also provides a higher level of insulation than traditional fiberglass batts and can be used in varying thicknesses.

Because spray foam insulation can be disruptive, it is usually best to combine it with other energy-saving projects. Meritage Homes recommends installing new windows during your spray insulation project for the most energy-efficient results. This will eliminate drafts, provide a better seal, and allow the spray foam to be sprayed around the windows. It is a good idea to leave the house during the installation process, so that you don’t breathe in any harmful off-gassing chemicals from the spray foam.
