With Wisconsin’s bitterly cold winters, quality insulation is essential, but which insulation is the best choice for your home? Compared to other materials, spray foam insulation has several distinct advantages.

What is Spray Foam Insulation?

Spray foam is a two-part liquid insulation that, when mixed, expands quickly and adheres to surrounding surfaces, encapsulating obstructions like outlet boxes and filling any voids or crevices. This means that once it fills the space and cures completely, it offers excellent thermal performance, as well as air sealing.

The Benefits of Spray Foam

Spray foam is an excellent choice for year-round comfort, and it offers several benefits that put it ahead of the competition:

  • High R-values, with up to R-6.0 per inch of installed material
  • More insulation can be installed in tight spaces
  • Excellent thermal performance
  • Provides a tight seal to minimize drafts, heat loss, and air quality issues
  • Resistant to damage from moisture, pests, and mold

The Cost of Spray Foam Vs. Other Materials

Spray foam does cost a bit more than other insulation materials like fiberglass or cellulose, but it offers the highest thermal performance and R-values of the most common residential insulation choices, and it does not require additional vapor barriers to provide air sealing. Plus, it is resistant to moisture and pest damage, meaning it will last longer, and it does not easily compress like blown-in fiberglass or cellulose, preserving its R-value over time.
