Does Spray Foam Technology Control Air Leakage?
Spray Foam is certified to be an air barrier at an application of 1.5 inch thickness. Since spray foam is applied directly to the substrate and fills in all the cracks, air can not flow around or behind the insulation system. Spray foam maximizes its insulation properties by eliminating convection loops through and behind boards. Spray foam provides a fully adhered, seamless air barrier insulation system.
What About Mold?
To have mold, you must have: moisture, warm temperatures and a food source. Spray foam eliminates air movement within the wall cavity itself, thereby reducing the potential to accumulate moisture. Spray foam has no nutritional value and is not considered a food source for mold.
How Long Will It Take?
Most jobs can be completed in 1-2 days. We typically allocate 1 day for removal and 1 day for installation, give or take depending on the size and complexity of the space.
