Interior Foam is a Fantastic Solution to Leaks, Wind and Durability
Spray foam insulation can also be applied to walls, ceilings and crawl spaces. It increases energy efficiency and provides long term remedies for leak resistance, wind protection and durability. When the foam is applied, it expands to form the shape and capacity to the space, forming a barrier from desired pollutants.
American Star specializes in three types of Spray Polyurethane Foam:
- Low Density
- Medium Density
- High Density
Low Density Spray Quickly Stops Wind In Its Tracks
American Star Painting & Coatings Co. can apply low-density spray foam on walls, ducts, ceilings and crawl spaces. It is often used to fill cavities in walls during construction. It provides effective heat insulation and seals airflow through cracks, joints and seams by filling the cavities. In Addition, foam insulation serves as a barrier to airborne sounds and reduces airborne sound transfer through a building’s roof, floor, ceiling and walls.
Medium Density Spray Foam Not Affected by Moisture
Like low-density foam, medium-density SPF is often used for continuous insulation, interior cavity fill and unvented attic applications. It can also provide, a high tensile and bond strength, low vapor permeance and is typically not affected by moisture. As a closed-cell spray foam, however, medium density foam is best used where there is need for the greatest R-value insulation per inch possible, such as in tight spaces.
High Density Foam Used For Exterior and Roofing Applications
American Star Painting & Coatings Co. often uses high-density SPF for exterior applications. Therefore, it does not expand as much as lower density foams and requires more material to cover and insulate any given space.
Each Type of Interior Foam Provides Unique Benefits
Each type of interior foam insulation that American Star Painting & Coatings Co. offers unique benefits and application processes, including:
- Stops air infiltration, minimizes airflow and eliminates drafts.
- It has the best R-value per inch of any insulation and allows you to fit more insulation in a tighter space. This saves money in reduced lumber costs.
- Inhibits moisture driven elements due to its closed cell structure. With ventilation, it will dry with minimal insulation value loss.
- Seals cracks and crevices and insulates hard to reach areas. Provides a seamless layer of insulation and can be applied quickly and easily by trained professionals.
- Adheres to wood, metal, plastic and many other surfaces.
- Meets material building code requirements and are accepted nationwide.
