Spray foam insulation, or polyurethane, is an alternative to fiberglass and other types of insulator. Unlike fiberglass, which is less effective in preventing air leaks, spray foam offers superior energy savings. Spray foam is made up of tiny cells that create a powerful seal around any area it insulates. It is a great solution for sealing voids and crevices that are difficult to reach with other forms of insulation, such as fiberglass.

The Difference Between Open & Closed Foam Insulation

Spray polyurethane foam (SPF) is generally categorized as either open or closed. The distinction is based on the density of the spray foam, and the degree to which it serves as an air barrier and moisture vapor barrier. Open-cell spray foam, also known as low-density foam, is typically used for attic insulation. It is able to catch roof leaks and will alert you when it’s time to have your roof inspected.

Closed-cell foam, on the other hand, is better suited for crawl spaces and basements, as it acts as both an air and water vapor barrier. Closed-cell foam also boasts a higher R-value than open-cell foam.
