Insulation is for more than just your walls, ceilings, and floors. Polyurethane spray foam provides an excellent vapor barrier and insulator underneath concrete slabs. This is especially beneficial for homes or buildings built without a crawlspace. Spray foam insulation provides an R-value of roughly 12-14, depending on the brand, sufficient for our East Tennessee climates. Because of how polyurethane spray foam adheres to almost any surface, there are no seams or other imperfections. It provides a complete vapor barrier, protecting plumbing and electrical wiring that is laid inside the concrete slab.
Will applying spray foam insulation disrupt my project timeline?
Nope! It doesn’t take long to apply the spray foam, and it cures within about 15-20 minutes and is ready to be walked on. So, the concrete slab could be poured the same day that we complete the spray foam installation.
What type of spray foam is applied under concrete slabs?
Generally, we apply closed-cell spray foam as it ideal for use below-grade. Plus, it is waterproof, creating a vapor barrier to prevent moisture from seeping into the floor of your home or building.
Is polyurethane spray foam more expensive than other methods?
The price per square foot may cost more than most other insulation methods, but the benefits of spray foam make the extra cost worth it.
