Types of Spray Foam Installed by HomeCore, LLC
Pricing will also depend on the type of foam you choose. There are two main types of spray foam insulation; closed-cell insulation and open-cell insulation. Open-cell foam contains small bubbles, or cells, that are broken. As a result, air fills in the open space within the bubble. This creates a spongy consistency. Closed-cell foam consists of cells that are not broken, but are packed tightly together. Air doesn't fill the bubbles, but rather gas in the form of CO2. This material is harder and stronger than open-cell foam. Open-cell spray foam insulation is less expensive, but has a lower R-value (3.5 vs 6) and is more permeable to water and air. The R-value of open-cell spray foam is still higher than many other forms of insulation. Open-cell insulation should not be used below ground level where it could absorb water.
