Your home is important and it is essential to make sure you are protecting it in the right ways. Spray foam insulation is an excellent way to protect your home and those living in it. The first part of this blog series went through three ways to protect your home with spray foam insulation. Here are three more ways how spray foam insulation protects your home. Spray Foam Insulation Protect
Prevents Water Damage
Water damage can lead to many issues within your home, so it is best if it is avoided. During the spring, there is a lot of melting happening so that means there is plenty of water and moisture around. This water can seep into your home’s structure, and if not properly protected, it can cause serious damage to your house. Spray foam insulation can help shield your home from water damage. Unlike other types of insulation, spray foam does not become damaged when wet. Fiberglass insulation and cellulose insulation can lose effectiveness when they are wet, but spray foam does not. Spray foam insulation will also fill in all the little holes and gaps when installed so there will not be water leaking into your home and causing damage.
Spray foam insulation can help with the structural support in your house. When fully set, the material in spray foam insulation acts as a glue. It hardens and helps hold together the pieces of the structure of your home. The spray foam reinforces the walls it is sprayed onto in the house. If you feel your home needs a little extra support, consider installing spray foam insulation.
When installed, spray foam insulation will help seal up your home. There are many benefits to having your home properly sealed. Some of the benefits were previously mentioned in the first blog such as deterring pests and preventing mold. When your home is sealed well, then it will be protected, along with everything inside will stay protected. Spray foam will help make sure your home is sealed well because of how well it gets everywhere and makes sure there are no gaps for air to get in or out.
