Do You Even Need it?

First time using any type of spray foam insulation… As a somewhat handy person I was very happy to save almost $4,000 by doing it myself. David Z. Braintree, MA | Read more >>

The U.S. Department of Energy urges homeowners to air seal their homes. That’s because sealing out leaks saves up to 40% on energy bills.

That’s where expanding foam comes in. The #1 benefit is that it’s the best way to do this.  Why?

Because expanding spray foam provides a tight air seal and high r-value in just 1 inch of cured foam.  It’s the amazingly simple way to save a ton of energy and add comfort to your home in 1 simple pass.

Expanding foam provides a 100% air tight seal. It fills in the gaps and holes that let air in.

When you keep your heated air IN you also keep the cold air OUT.

That same air tight seal keeps your air conditioned air IN during the summer AND the hot air outside OUT.

Foam it Green closed cell spray foam doesn’t absorb moisture. That helps prevent mold and mildew. The air tight barrier also seals out bugs and pests. And that same barrier helps improve your indoor air quality.

  • The 100% air tight seal keeps cold air out and warm air in during the winter, and vice versa in the summer.
  • Foam it Green closed cell spray foam helps prevent mold and mildew.
  • Creates a tight barrier against bugs, pests and allergens.

Installation is simple and easy.  The spray foam adheres to almost every dry surface and expands to fit the space.  That means air leaks are sealed quickly.

Do You Need Fiberglass or Expanding Foam Insulation?

It depends on what you want.

The harsh reality is that no matter how many inches of fiberglass you install it will never provide a tight air seal.  Plus fiberglass degrades over time, absorbs moisture, sags and settles and makes a nice home for pests. Most of our customers are replacing worn out fiberglass with Foam it Green.

If you want to save lots on energy bills you need to seal out air leaks so what you heat or cool stays inside. And that air seal keeps the cold (or hot) air outside from coming in too! That’s what expanding spray foam insulation does. It’s the primary spray foam insulation benefit.

Should you have someone else install expanding foam insulation for you?

It depends on what you want.

If you like keeping things simple, quick, and easy, then you should join 50,000+ others and choose Foam it Green. Why?

Because spray foam installers use high-pressure machines which push loads of chemicals through the hoses and into your home.  That means you have to leave for 24 to 72 hours. Foam it Green’s low-pressure spray foam system means you only need to wear a respirator in the area you are spraying, and everything is settled after just one hour.

With Foam it Green there are no quotes to gather, no days out of your home, and no worries about the quality of the work.
