SPRAY FOAM INSULATION: WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

What is spray foam insulation?  Are there different types available for different applications? And, how does sprayed foam insulation address the latest building codes while anticipating any changes to the building code? In this post, we explore the fundamentals of insulating foam and more.
