Atlanta Spray Foam Insulation

installerSpray foam insulation is used in Atlanta as an air sealing product for residential wall and ceiling cavities. Spray foam insulation is a polyurethane spray foam insulation used in Atlanta that is applied, via special equipment, into wall cavities and expands to fill all the nooks and crannies in a wall cavity. Once the cavity or void is filled any protruding foam is scraped flush with the studs to form a uniform wall cavity. Spray foam insulation Atlanta is an easy way to completely fill wall cavities with insulation therefore sealing in the conditioned air in the same step.

The most common insulation method used is fiberglass insulation batts, which are placed between the studs and stapled in place. The drywall is then nailed over it, creating a straight wall. Although this is perfectly acceptable, it does not create an airtight seal, so heat will escape. The amount of heat loss from the average home in Atlanta daily can easily fill a blimp. That results in a tremendous amount of wasted money and energy! Sprayed foam materials cost a little more than traditional fiberglass batt insulation in Atlanta.

However, since sprayed foam both insulations and forms an air barrier, it can be cost competitive with batt insulation in Atlanta because it eliminates the steps for air-tightness detailing (such as caulking, applying house wrap and vapor barrier, and taping joints). And the largest benefit achieved with spray foam insulation in Atlanta is through the savings in reduced heating and cooling bills in Atlanta for years to come.
