Traditional Vs. Spray Foam

Traditional Insulation Vs. Spray Foam Insulation

TRADITIONAL

Fiberglass & Cellulose Insulation

Traditional Insulation operate more like a woolen sweater, allowing the air to pass through.


  • OLD TECHNOLOGY

    Fiberglass is an old technology, and cellulose is little more than shredded newspaper.


  • HARD TO INSTALL PERFECTLY

    Any spaces and gaps that aren’t filled can equate to the size of a basketball, with enough air leakage everyday to fill two air blimps!


  • MAY RETAIN WATER

    Traditional insulation could retain water potentially damaging your home as well as reducing the functionality of the insulation. Water retention can be a contributor to mold growth.


  • SETTLES OVER TIME

    Traditional insulation can settle over time, further allowing air to pass through. When was the last time you checked your current insulation?


  • ALLOWS ALLERGENS TO PASS THROUGH

    Traditional insulation can be dusty and could allow allergens and other pollutants to enter your home which can trigger allergies and respiratory issues like asthma.


  • CONTAINS FORMALDEHYDE

    Most fiberglass contains formaldehyde, and may emit formaldehyde fumes into your home during installation.


  • ATTRACTS PESTS

    Fiberglass and cellulose can be torn apart by pests as a food source, and some even use the insulation for nesting.
