Is Spray Foam Cost Effective?
Spray Foam is so cost effective it has the shortest payback period and the highest return on investment over any other Energy Star rated renewable building product. Within 1 to 2 years spray foam will not only pay for itself but will offer year after year returns on your investment. Spray foam insulation is the number one return on your investment, 5x higher than fiberglass or cellulose. Spray foam is the best investment you will ever make, period. All in one quick, easy application.
What does insulation R-value mean?
R-value means resistance to heat flow. The higher the R-value, the greater the insulating power. In theory, all insulation with the same R-value should insulate equally. Unfortunately, in reality, that is not the way it works out. One of the biggest factors in maintaining the R-value is the way the insulation is installed. When installed perfectly, it will retain most of its R-value. However, common installations of fiberglass and cellulose show about a 50% drop in R-value when installed because it will settle behind the walls or an attic floor. On a hot summer day your attic can reach 104°F. with typical fiberglass or blown insulation. However, with spray foam insulation, your attic will be between 76°F and 77°F allowing your AC to run less and giving you big savings.
How is spray foam insulation added to a home?
Spray foam insulation is sprayed into a wall or roof cavity by our certified installers. Spray foam insulation is applied as a liquid and then quickly expands finding and filling every nail hole, gap, nook and cranny which exists within every building envelope. This sealing provides your home a complete air seal which other insulations cannot do. The Department of US energy sites that 40% of a buildings energy is lost by air infiltration alone. Spray foam blocks 100% of all air infiltration making it the most effective insulation money can buy.
Compare spray foam insulation vs fiberglass
There really is no comparison. Spray foam insulation creates a complete air-tight seal preventing air drafts and mold growth. Have you looked to see what's growing in your walls? We see mold growing all the time in fiberglass and cellulose insulated homes. There have been numerous independent studies that show fiberglass loses more than half of its R-value after being installed. So why allow your home to be mold infested as well as put up with an insulation product that doesn't maintain half its R-value only to replace it a few years later?
Is foam insulation safe?
Spray foam offers little to no vapor permeability, zero air infiltration, lifesaving health benefits, tremendous sound control, and structural strength. Trust us when we say that spray foam insulation is absolutely safe. We would not install any home insulation products in the homes of our family and friends if we didn't think it was safe. It is safe and eco-friendly as well as it can be soundproofing and water resistant. The foam is made out of polyurethane, which offers no food source and prevents mold growth. During application, Five Star Foam uses special protective clothing and breathing masks. Once the spray foam sets for 24 hours, it is safe for anyone to enter the building.

Spray foam insulation is made from expanding polymers and is not a food source for mold.
Spray Foam Insulation Adds 200% Structural Strength to Your Home
Because of spray foam's ability to bind to the area it is applied to, it acts as a "glue" adding up to 200% structural strength. That's pretty impressive! There's nothing else like it on the market. This strength helps during storms and high wind disasters like hurricanes.
