Spray foam insulation

Spray foam insulation

An insulation that is sprayed into place and then expands to fill cavities. It acts as both an insulator and a sealant and is an alternative to the standard insulation bats. The two types of spray foam are open cell (isocyanurate) and closed cell (polyurethane). Closed-cell foams typically have a higher R-value than open-cell foams.
