You have begun the long dreamed renovation in your house and quickly realize it will be a smart investment to bring up the R-value of your insulation. However, tearing out the sheetrock and messing around with batting quickly dims the idea. Did you know you can use spray foam insulation in existing walls?
How does installing open cell spray foam insulation work for existing walls?
To install open cell spray foam, professionals drill small holes usually near the top of the wall and the foam is inserted using a machine. The foam expands filling every crack and crevice creating a custom fit for every space. This revolutionary technique means that you no longer need to take on costly demos to upgrade your houses insulation efficiency.
Now that you know it can be done, here are the benefits gained:
Open cell insulation uses less product to make than closed cell insulation making open cell spray foam a great affordable option when aiming for the same R-value. The R-value can also be increased in the space if there is enough room to expand into.
Open cell spray foam is a hydrophobic material, meaning it repels water. Not only will this insulation not soak up any moisture from leaks it will also provide a barrier from air pollution and pests.
Open cell spray foam insulation is right for you if:
- You want to update or increase insulation in existing walls
- You want to increase the R-value
- Custom full coverage insulation appeals to your project
- You want a barrier to block pests and allergens
