How Spray Foam Insulation Helps with Moisture Control
Spray foam insulation’s role in moisture management and sound dampening
As part of the home’s building envelope system, spray foam insulation is an ideal building material to help manage moisture and reduce the risk of mold growth, mildew and building durability issues. Spray foam insulation expands to fill the framing cavity, creating an air-tight seal to eliminate gaps and cracks where airborne moisture can penetrate, reducing the risk of moisture problems such as those that result from condensation.
How spray foam insulation contributes to sound dampening
Icynene spray foam insulation also plays a role in sound dampening and minimizing noise traveling throughout the home. Airborne and flanking noise can be minimized in your residential projects thanks to spray foam insulation’s air barrier properties. As a result, sounds from street traffic, barking dogs and airplane engines can be reduced.
