Open Cell

Open cell spray foam insulation is lower density and has a soft, fluffy feel and most often recommended for residential application for exterior walls, attics, or roof lines. If you are looking for soundproofing quality, consider getting open cell spray foam. Open cell foam is not considered a moisture barrier. While this may sound like a downfall, it may not be considering where it is applied. For instance, applying open cell foam to your roofline or attic floor may be ideal. While it provides superior insulation, it also would allow you to identify any leaks that may develop in your roof.


Closed cell spray foam is denser and ideal for below-grade, such as basements or crawlspaces, because it can block moisture intrusion. Its texture is firm, almost like plastic. Since closed cell foam creates a moisture barrier, you would want to have it applied in areas of your home or building that are underground, preventing that musty or dank smell associated with basements or crawlspaces.

Receiving spray foam insulation is a simple process, whether it is a new build or an already built home. Our experts utilize equipment that is easy to operate inside, applying the foam in a way that does not disrupt your day to day activities. Once applied, spray foam, whether open or closed cell cures fairly quickly. Project length may vary, depending on the accessibility of the area needing to be sprayed.

Benefits of Spray Foam Insulation

Spray foam has multiple benefits above using traditional fiberglass insulation (the rolls of pink fluffy stuff)

Improves air quality inside

Spray foam forms a continuous air barrier from the outside, minimizing allergens and pollutants that may enter your home and cause health issues. Since closed cell spray foam prevents moisture from entering your basement or crawlspace, it also reduces the risk of mold growth.

Minimizes outside noises and noise between walls

Noise reduction could be a significant benefit if your home or building is located close to a busy highway or in an active area of town. Some home and business owners opt for spray foam simply because it reduces interior noise between rooms.

Improves energy

Insulating your home with our superior spray foam saves money on your energy bills because the indoor temperature remains comfortable year-round. While you still have to run your AC or heat, you won’t have to run it as often.
