Questions & Answers

1What is spray foam installation?
Spray foam is comprised of isocyanate and polyol resin. When the two are mixed together they create a chemical that expands 30 to 60 times its liquid volume when sprayed onto a surface. This makes it valuable because it can mold to the shape of what it is being sprayed on. It is air tight, which makes it a great insulator.
2What is the difference between Open-Cell and Closed-Cell Urethane Spray Foam?
Open-Cell foam is soft like a balloon with about ½ to ¾ of a pound per square inch. Closed-Cell foam has various degrees of hardness based on its density varying from 2 and 3 pounds per cubic foot. Closed-Cell foam has a thermal performance R-value of about 6.0 per inch and Open-Cell has 3/6 inch R-Value. Open-Cell is not air tight so it is better suited for dry areas. Water is absorbed by Open-Cell foam. This makes it less valuable to Montana because of our extreme weather conditions. Closed-Cell foam is air tight and will not absorb water. It also enhances the structural stability of walls. The foam you would want to choose would be based on the conditions you are using it in.
3What Does R-Value Mean?
In building and construction, the R-value is a measure of how well an object, per unit of its exposed area, resists conductive flow of heat: the greater the R-value, the greater the resistance and so the better the thermal insulating properties of the object.
4Is spray foam insulation safe?
It is a chemical when first sprayed. When working with chemicals there is always a concern for health, however once the foam has dried it poses no threat to you. You should remain out of your home or structure for 24 hours to allow this process. This is why it’s so important to know what you are doing when applying this product. So why not leave it to the professionals. Quality 1st Installation has been in business for seven years. Our expertly trained professionals will provide quality work without any worry for you and your family’s health.
