How Spray Foam Insulation Helps with Moisture Control & Flood Resistance
Spray foam insulation’s role in moisture control & flood resistance
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.
Hurricanes & Flooding
Extreme weather events, like hurricanes and floods, can cause serious damage to homes. Closed-cell spray foam insulations, such as ICYNENE's Proseal and Proseal Eco, have been identified as a flood-resistant material in coastal areas by FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency).
