What Exactly is Spray Foam Insulation?
At its core, spray polyurethane foam (SPF) insulation is an innovative foam plastic material sprayed into open cavities to seal against air movement. It stands out from other kinds of insulation in that it is superior (has one of the highest R-values) and insulates against both air and moisture
Typically, the insulation material is composed of polyol resin and isocyanate, which react to produce a foam that expands when sprayed onto surfaces. The expansion helps the foam fit the shape of even the most hard-to-reach places and strangely shaped areas.
Once the insulation sets, it rapidly hardens to form an airtight seal and never loses its shape or R-value over time. Whatever your needs, Logik Roofing & Insulation uses premium spray foam products to fit every need. Our goal is to help you create a superior barrier that effectively insulates your home or business against extreme temperatures and moisture

How We Install Spray Foam Insulation?
We first take time to understand your needs, then work to satisfy those needs. Our process takes these steps:
What Does Spray Foam Insulation Do?
Research shows that up to 35% of a home’s energy is lost due to air infiltration through walls, and 25% escapes through the attic. For the most part, this means your air conditioning works twice as hard to keep your home comfy and livable, ultimately causing your energy bills to skyrocket.
If you are experiencing high energy bills year-round because your home can’t maintain a constant temperature, spray foam insulation is the ultimate solution. When applied properly, spray foam insulation creates a continuous airtight barrier, which improves your home’s efficiency and comfort
Best of all, it can be easily applied to nearly all open surfaces, including attics, ceilings, crawlspaces, basements, and inside new walls
Benefits of Spray Foam Insulation
Spray foam insulation is said to insulate as much as 50% better than other kinds of insulation products. Here are the benefits you get from treating your home with spray foam insulation:
Spray foam insulation is an excellent insulation material in all weather conditions and is also an effective moisture, vapor, and, air barrier.
Foam insulation effectively prevents moisture and vapor from entering through the walls, protecting your home against moisture year-round.
Besides acting as a barrier against moisture, foam insulation prevents bacteria growth. These properties prevent the growth of mold and mildew
When properly applied, spray foam reduces energy consumption and carbon footprint, protects the environment, and enhances interior comfort while limiting ozone-depleting substances. Since it lasts longer, it also consumes less material per unit of time
Increases sturdiness of walls
With its density and hardness, spray foam insulation can add to the sturdiness of your walls. This can go a long way to ensuring your home stands well against strong winds, heavy snow, and earthquakes
Spray foam insulation, particularly open-cell spray foam, can significantly reduce noise. This can be a big advantage if you live in a noisy neighborhood.
Spray foam insulation can enter hard to reach places
Since spray foam insulation reaches cracks and crevices, it forms a protective layer that keeps most elements out and blocks allergens from entering your building. This helps ensure year-round comfort.
Where is Spray Foam Insulation Used?
- Pole barns and other special uses

How Does Spray Foam Compare to Other Insulations?
When it comes to comparing spray foam to other types of insulation, it is clear that spray foam turns out as the best. It has a high R-value per inch and covers all cracks and spaces on the walls. Spray foam insulation is commonly adopted in many homes as it proves to resist heat loss without getting damaged easily.
Even though it is relatively expensive, it is easy to apply on walls, attic, basement, and roof cavities. You may include less or no maintenance costs of the spray foam insulation, unlike the traditional insulation, which gets damaged after a few years.
