Where Not to Use Spray Foam Insulation
Though spray foam insulation in Waller County, TX has a wide application of uses, there are certain areas where spray foam should be avoided so as to be completely safe:
Does spray foam insulation need a vapor barrier?
An air and vapor barrier is a controlled system that is used in order to control the amount of air that enters from outside and to prevent the conditioned air from exiting the building structure or the house. Vapor barriers can be interior and exterior. An interior vapor barrier controls the amount of air leakage into the wall and attic and limits convection losses within the wall itself. An exterior barrier controls the amount of air from the outside into the wall and attic and limits the amount of moisture entering the building structure from outside.
Spray foam insulation in Waller County, TX acts as vapor barrier because it controls air leakage very effectively. Open-cell spray foam insulation may or may not need a vapor barrier but closed-cell spray foam insulation is such that it does not need any vapor barrier at all. Spray foam insulation when used in the attic, basement and walls completely air-seals the building structure, thus improving the indoor air quality and conditioning the environment. Spray foam is considered to be an impermeable material as it insulates as well as air-seals in a single step.
