Energy-Efficient Insulation

Profoam's sprayed-in-place polyurethane foam (SPF) insulation can reduce heating and cooling loss by up to 40%. It provides twice the R-value per inch compared to traditional insulation, offering soundproofing and strength benefits.

Long-Lasting Protection

Our foam forms an airtight seal around framing, ducts, wall outlets, windows, and more, ensuring efficient and long-term protection against energy loss caused by air infiltration.

Understanding Spray Foam Insulation

Spray foam insulation can be confusing, but we're here to help. This type of insulation is made of polyurethane sprayed into the walls of a home or business. It comes in two forms: closed-cell and open-cell.

Closed-cell foam is denser, preventing moisture passage, blocking drafts, and acting as an effective insulator. Though less dense, open-cell foam expands once sprayed, making it great for filling in small spaces.

Spray Foam vs. Fiberglass

Compared to fiberglass, spray foam offers numerous advantages. It's more energy-efficient, lasts longer (up to 80 years), blocks air and moisture, adds structural integrity, and often includes a fire-retardant additive. The only downside is its higher cost. However, the energy savings and longer lifespan make up for this over time.

In short, while spray foam insulation might cost more upfront, its superior performance and long-lasting benefits make it a worthwhile investment.

Considering a Home Retrofit?

Spray foam insulation has gained popularity, particularly among those living in extreme climates. The benefits are substantial and the cost is recouped over time as the foam lasts about 80 years, outlasting fiberglass by about 60 years.

Energy Savings and Comfort

The main advantage of retrofitting a home with spray foam is energy savings. But don't overlook the added comfort it offers.

When Retrofitting Isn't Ideal

There are times when retrofitting isn't feasible, such as in the main walls unless a complete renovation is underway.

The Benefit of Attics

Attics can greatly benefit from spray foam. Most homes lose a lot of energy through the roof, especially during colder months when heat rises.

Finding the Right Contractor

Installing spray foam insulation is complex. It's not a DIY job nor suitable for every home. If you're contemplating if it's right for your home, consult a professional. The Profoam Certified Contractor Network is a great place to start!
