As winter gradually descends on the Twin Cities area, each night is getting longer and cooler. If your house has any vulnerabilities in its insulation, you’ll know it before long. While cozy sweaters and a warm fireplace can be enjoyable, they’re less so when your home feels more like the North Pole than Santa’s workshop.

If your home has you layering socks and sweaters, it’s time to consider an insulation upgrade. With spray foam insulation, our remodeling contractors at The Construction Group can fill in the weak points in your insulation so your family will be more comfortable all winter long.

In this post, we’re exploring the benefits of spray foam to help you decide if it’s worth the investment for your home. To get a free quote on spray foam insulation installation, call our home insulation services today.

A Quieter Home

If your home has cold walls that let the winter chill in, they’re also probably letting in every sound from your neighbors’ homes and the street. If you know more about the local train schedule than the conductor does, you’ve probably got paper-thin walls. With spray foam insulation, you’ll experience a dramatic noise reduction, which means your neighbors can party like it’s 1999 and it won’t disturb your slumber.

Fewer Sneezes

If you’re like most Minnesota residents, spring can bring its share of sniffles and sneezes thanks to all of our beautiful local foliage. Allergens like pollen and mold can easily get into your home through small cracks and insulation weak points, adding to the misery. But spray foam insulation closes up the space, keeping Mother Nature outside where she belongs.

Bugs Bug Off

If you’ve ever had an ant infestation in your kitchen or bedroom, you know getting rid of them can be positively nightmarish. Any vulnerabilities in your insulation are like rolling out the welcome mat for insects and small critters. By closing up the space with spray foam insulation, you’ll give them no quarter, leaving them out in the cold and out of your kitchen.

Energy Bill Savings

One of the best reasons to invest in spray foam insulation is the heating and cooling bill reduction you’ll see. By limiting the heat flow from inside your home, you’ll experience warmer winters without pushing your furnace too hard. And in the summer months, hot air stays outside while your home stays cooler.

Combats Mold and Mildew

Since foam products are made using an inert polymer, it does not provide a food source for bacteria, mold, or mildew—meaning water will not be able to penetrate the walls causing further damage.

Increases Structure Stability

Housing codes require certain walls to be weight bearing to help support the roof. That said, walls are more sturdy with spray foam, especially closed-cell which is denser. When foam is applied inside the walls and the attic, they’re able to withstand severe weather conditions such as strong winds and rain associated with hurricane-like storms.

Longer Life

Have you ever witnessed renovation work when the walls are exposed? You might see sagging or torn dust-infested insulation. Even though the cost might be higher than other types of insulation, spray foam insulation holds up better because it does not break apart or sag over time the way traditional insulation may do, saving you money in the long run.

Environmentally Friendly

If your objective is striving to seek environmentally friendly solutions, then spray foam is your answer–carbon footprints are diminished through less energy consuption.
