For improving indoor air quality and keeping moisture out, spray foam is unquestionably the best choice. Max Insulation delivers both small and large spray foam jobs for attics, walls, bump outs and crawlspaces.
When comparing Spray Foam Insulation to traditional fiberglass insulation, one of the most important factors is air sealing. During the installation process, Spray Foam expands to fill cracks and corners, creating a seal that keeps conditioned air inside, and unconditioned air outside. Most older attics also use a fan to attempt to vent the hot air out, adding to the loss of conditioned air that rises from living spaces below.
The chart to the left illustrates the dramatic difference Spray Foam can make when replacing traditional fiberglass insulation. Think of fiberglass insulation as a sweater—adding another sweater won’t stop the wind from blowing through the gaps and openings in your house. Only air sealing can completely shield your home from costly leaks.
