Use Closed Cell Foam it Green for 2×6 Walls
With Foam it Green spray foam insulation, you seal and insulate in one quick and easy step. Lower your energy bills today by getting a continuous air barrier.
You’re lucky- having 2×6 walls gives you options. You don’t have to do all Closed Cell foam to meet code.
Do the cost-effective hybrid. Start with 2 inches of closed cell Foam it Green followed by a less expensive filler insulation for the rest. You can use open cell foam or any 4″ batt for the rest of the space. If you heat your home often during the winter, it is important to spray at least 2 inches of closed cell foam first.
If you prefer to get to R-21 fast, spray 3 inches of closed cell Foam it Green and leave the rest of the space empty.
Foam it Green creates a seamless air barrier and high R-value that:
Keeps your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer
Saves you money on energy costs
Stops insects and rodents
Stops uncomfortable drafts
Stops sound transfer
Stands up to flooding
And because it never sags or settles, once it’s in place, it’s done!
No other form of insulation can say any of those things.
How to Insulate a 2x6 Wall
How to Quickly and Easily Insulate a 2×6 Wall:
1) Follow all of the instructions in the included instruction manual regarding proper Foam it Green setup, project area preparation, and substrate readiness. Make sure that you have all of the tools required for the job (see Tools).
2) Apply closed cell Foam it Green to achieve a cured thickness of one inch, making sure the foam is applied to the joints connecting the studs to the substrate. (Fig. 1)
3) Spray additional layers of closed cell foam at cured thicknesses of one inch each to the desired final depth. (Fig. 2)
4) If the foam expands past the studs, trim flat with a serrated edge before enclosing the wall. (Fig. 3)
If the building is going to be heated during colder months, and will use a combination of insulation materials in the wall cavity (such as fiberglass, cellulose, rock wool, or open cell foam) it is recommended to apply a minimum thickness of 1.5” of a closed cell first. (A minimum thickness of 1” is recommended for climates in which no heat/furnace is used).
For most homes, it is recommended to apply a vapor barrier after installing insulation before the desired wall covering (drywall or paneling) goes up.
