Why choose open-cell spray foam for your home?[Video]
Open- and closed-cell spray foam insulation share many advantages, such as helping to insulate a household with less energy waste, but each insulation type has its own advantages as well. Open-cell spray foam may not have as high an R-value as closed-cell but still boasts advantages for consumers.
First and foremost, open-cell has a lower per square foot cost and this price difference often makes open-cell the preferred choice for homeowners looking to insulate for less. Open-cell spray foam is also able to help minimize airborne and flanking noise pollution within the home. Plus, open-cell spray foam is capable of conforming to a home's seasonal shifting, meaning that your home is consistently insulated all year round.
