Benefits of spray foam and wall injected foam

There are clear benefits to using spray foam insulation. Because it's a spray and not a long piece of pink fiberglass, spray foaminsulation gets into all of the tiny nooks and crannies, providing better insulation. Drafts are filled and the house is warmer in the winter. No cold air can escape in the summer either. In light of these facts, the homeowner with spray foam insulation can expect lower utility bills.

Sprayfoam insulation fills every little crack and crevice, so vermin and bugs have a harder time getting into the home, saving on extermination bills. Plus, it's such a great adherent, it can stick to a floor and insulate from underneath. Most homes insulated with spray foam have a higher resale value, especially newer homes. There are environmental advantages as well; most notably, there aren't any fiberglass particles floating around in the air.

Spray foam insulation also lasts longer. It sticks to the walls and won't fall off like fiberglass. An extra bonus is that it doesn't cause itching when touched, unlike fiberglass foam, it inhibits mold because it doesn't absorb water and it is naturally fire resistent.

Sprayed foam materials cost more than traditional fiberglass batt insulation. However, since sprayed foam forms both an insulation and an air barrier, it can be cost competitive with batt insulation because it eliminates the steps for air-tightness detailing (such as caulking, applying housewrap and vapor barrier, and taping joints). As a result, it also reduces construction time and the number of specialized contractors.

Spray foam insulation is ideal for filling small spaces—such as window jambs, small stud bays, rim joist areas, and for sealing around electrical boxes and other penetrations—where cutting fiberglass batt insulation to fit can be difficult and labor-intensive.
