What Are the Benefits of Spray Foam Insulation?
Spray foam insulation advantages include:
- Seals as it insulates: Seals attics, roofs and walls to help prevent structural moisture damage like wood rot or mold in leaky, condensation-prone areas.
- Saves money and prevents energy loss: Spray foam’s sealing effect lowers energy bills, preventing outdoor air from coming inside and blocking conditioned air’s escape from inside.
- Expands to fill cavities: Spray foam fills irregular, small areas around plumbing pipes and wiring when insulating crawl spaces, etc.
- Strengthens roof and walls: Enhances wind resistance and minimizes pressurization.
- Offers high thermal resistance: Very efficient insulator with an R-value of R-6.
- Damps sound: Helps silence traffic noise, etc.
- Won’t attract insects/pests: Pests can’t feed on or nest in spray foam.

Risks of DIY Spray Foam Insulation
There are significant risks when using spray foam as a DIY project. For a successful, cost-effective and safe insulation project, you need:
- Special pro-grade equipment: You need professional-quality spray guns, heat-tolerant hose, air compressor, proportioning equipment, disposable coveralls, respirators and more.
- Proper ventilation: Polyurethane spray foam contains and emits substances that can be harmful if the area is not properly ventilated with industrial exhaust fans.
- Correct chemical “recipe”: The chemicals used in spray foam must be correctly mixed for effective insulation performance. Otherwise, foam may not adhere properly, and it can pull loose from building structure.
- Superior quality control: Small missed spots or gaps can reduce energy efficiency.
- Installation experience to prevent a fire hazard: Spraying too quickly a or thickly makes the curing process dangerous, and could start a fire.
- Expert prep and technique: Expert spray foam installers must maintain proper balance between spray pressure, heat level and application tool position. Spray gun operation is challenging, with clogs common if not properly used. Correct curing time for your specific mixture and thickness is required, otherwise you risk insulation cracking, shrinkage and/or poor bonding.
- Proper work-area containment: If you don’t carefully control the insulation work area, like the pros do when using spray foam, family members or building occupants can be exposed to potentially harmful spray foam chemicals.
- Serious asbestosis concerns: In homes or buildings built prior to 1980, you will likely touch or disturb asbestos when adding new insulation. This exposes household occupants to lung scarring and mesothelioma (cancer). Never disturb asbestos insulation―have an expert assess the situation, so you’re not at risk.
