Spray Foam & Canadian Climate
Climate Zones & Spray Foam Insulation In Canada
The amount of thermal insulation required in a house is dictated by building codes. Spray foam insulation can be used to meet these requirements while also meeting air barrier requirements.
Using spray foam in the Canadian climate is a reliable solution to minimize the potential of moist air entering into the attic space. Applied in a vented attic design on the attic floor, Icynene spray foam prevents heat from escaping into the attic and thereby minimizes the potential for condensation and ice damming at the roof.
