Spray Foam General Info/Residential  

Roughly 33% of paid for conditioned air moves out of a home through holes, cracks and other seams in the building envelope. Using an advanced insulation system is necessary to achieve optimal building performance. Spray Polyurethane Foam or SPF is that advanced insulation system. By sealing the building envelope to stop conditioned indoor air from escaping and prevent unconditioned air from entering. 

Eliminate Air Leakage and Moisture
Spray foam insulation system works by sealing the building envelope to prevent conditioned indoor air from escaping, as well as unconditioned, outdoor air from entering.
Traditional fiberglass insulation is only placed into the wall cavities but does nothing to seal the cavity. Air infiltration can pass through any unsealed spaces. 90% of all moisture problems are due to air movement which can easily lead to mould and rotting of key building components. 

Make it tight and ventilate right
Spray foam insulation creates an air tight seal that stops this air leakage. Because spray polyurethane foam (spf) is fully adheres to almost any surface and seals hard-to-reach penetrations. The spf system provides unequaled air sealing and insulation properties for the entire building envelope but especially those hard to seal interfaces that leak energy. 

Closed Cell or Open Cell
Open cell foam has been proven to have insufficient vapour resistance during the cold Manitoba winter months and because of that we feel it is not suited for our climate and therefore we only spray it for certain specified applications. 2 lb Closed cell spray foam has a high per inch R-value (6 per inch), and is an excellent air and moisture and vapour retarder. It provides structural enhancements to buildings where it is sprayed, and is effective in all climates. In our cold Manitoba climate where moisture and condensation are a leading cause of failure closed cell SPF is a sure solution to these problems.
