5 Things You Can Do With Spray Foam Insulation
Spray polyurethane foam is the top choice among building owners to improve their property. SPF is biodegradable and easily recyclable. Top applicators can quickly accomplish their task in a day and allow 24-48 hours to let the material cure completely for maximum strength and protection. The possibilities are endless with SPF.
Aside from being the typical building insulation, it can also do many other things. Both SPFs open and closed-cell materials can achieve top-notch strength and durability improvements to building structures. They can reinforce basements, seal cracks and gaps, and improve overall property insulation.
There are five things you can also do with SPF besides its typical function.
Insulate Aged Building Components
Aged building components have worn structural integrity and poor insulation. Closed-cell spray polyurethane foam can easily seal and strengthen the walls and improve the material’s structure. The liquid form of the material can seep through the cracks and gaps, allowing it to restore integrity once it cures.
Closed-cell polyurethane foam expands at a smaller size than its open-cell counterpart. However, it can provide better structural support, waterproofing, and integrity to a dilapidated structure. Applicators can seamlessly apply open and closed-cell SPF in any aged building components for effective insulation and performance improvement.
Reinforce Drywall Soundproofing and Insulation
Office buildings can have worn-out insulation installed in the last 10-20 years. Building owners can use applicators who can remove the powdered and crumbled insulation. Then, these teams can replace them with high-quality SPF insulation that provides improved insulation and soundproofing.
Poor soundproofing in offices can lead to disorientation and lack of concentration among employees. The effects of noisy environments on productivity are significant enough to lose milestones and targets. Renewing your drywall soundproofing improves your room-to-room insulation, allowing workers to focus on their tasks and improve overall productivity.
Seal Cracks and Gaps on Basement Walls
Buildings have basements that have seen better days. Most commercial and corporate offices are between 20-30 years old. Most of their basements may have experienced floods or high humidity at some point.
Spray polyurethane foam can fill the cracks and gaps on basement walls. Filling the passages reduces air drafts that affect the property’s overall humidity, heating, and cooling capabilities. Let a team of SPF applicators do this task for you and achieve optimal structural performance for your building.
Serve as Roofing Material
High-quality SPF guarantees top-notch roof building protection. Closed-cell SPF is waterproof and airtight, disallowing moisture from infiltrating the material and the building’s concrete foundations. In doing so, it achieves a long-term lifespan and performance in the face of hail, snow, and rainstorms.
Clad Entire Building Walls
Building sheds, parking garages, and other structures can use SPF to clad their walls. Closed-cell SPF can reinforce a building’s structural integrity and protect its veneer, making it an excellent choice for building improvements and updates.
