Georgia Insulation – Spray Foam Insulation

When properly installed (as only a professional insulation crew can do) Insulation Contractor creates a custom airtight thermal envelope within your building structure. This helps to prevent the escape of heated or cooled air that can be as much as 50% of your home’s energy loss. The result is possible elimination (new construction) or significant reduction of your heating and cooling costs.

Common Applications of Spray Foam Insulation

This article will focus on explaining the pros and cons of both open and closed cell spray foam insulation. It will help you determine the type that’s best for your project. It will also examine the difference between these two types and help you choose the right one to meet your energy efficiency goals.


Spray foam insulation is made from polyurethane foam. The foam is created from liquid chemical components that undergo a rapid chemical reaction and expand to fill the space they are sprayed in. The foam can be sprayed on walls, rim joists, attics and crawl spaces in new construction. It can be sprayed around the perimeter of windows, doors and electrical outlets in existing homes and pole barns as well.

Most of the time, the spray foam used in residential applications meets the minimum requirements set by the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC). In Georgia, our state’s version of this code is the GA State Minimum Standard Energy Code. Chapter 4 specifies insulation requirements for both residential and commercial structures.
