Insulation can often be overlooked when it comes to home maintenance, but it's important because if you don't do any of these things then there will be an impact on your energy bills as well as comfort in your home. Insulating the exterior walls of your house with spray foam is an inexpensive way to make sure you're not losing heat during those chilly nights.

What is Spray-Foam Insulation?
Spray foam insulation is a type of insulating material that can be blown into walls, onto concrete slabs, or under flooring to provide energy efficiency and reduce air leakage. The expanded polystyrene (EPS) usually expands 30-60 times its liquid volume after being installed; it provides excellent resistance against outside elements such as rainwater ingress with little chance for bypasses or gaps like batts and blankets do when they're not dense enough inside--which makes them superior overall in some ways! Types of Spray-Foam Insulation
Not all spray foam is the same. There are two main types of spray foam that are made from a few different types of materials that include Cementitious, Phenolic, Polyisocyanurate, and Polyurethane - which is the most common.
Closed-cell foams are a great choice for insulation because they're much more insulating than other types. The higher density cells of closed-cell foam fill in any gaps with air, which helps the material expand as you need it to maintain its strength! In addition, this type is very strong and structurally reinforces whatever surface it's applied to - giving your home or business extra protection from cold weather elements. Open-Cell Foam
Open-cell foam is used in place of traditional, closed-cell insulations. Open-cell Foam provides more breathability for the home and it also offers better sound absorption than its counterpart. This insulation has many benefits including increased comfort levels with greater seasonal changes (such as warmer weather in Florida) because open cells allow air to flow through them easier which can help reduce stale or stuffy atmospheres caused by excess moisture condensing on surfaces within your house).
