What Is Spray Foam Insulation?
Spray foam insulation is an alternative to traditional fiberglass insulation. It’s applied wet and quickly expands into a thick foam that fits snugly in wall cavities, crevices and gaps. It can be installed in hard-to-reach areas and around piping and wiring.
Due to its expanding properties and versatile placement capabilities, spray foam insulation is a favorite of commercial and residential buildings alike.
Benefits of Spray Foam Insulation
This type of insulation can help:
- Eliminate air leaks
- Reduce energy bills and maximize the building’s energy efficiency
- Make your home or building more comfortable year-round
- Reduce noises from outside and inside, between rooms and levels
- Improve the performance of your HVAC systems
- Contribute to a healthier environment
Spray foam insulation should be installed by a professional who has been trained in the correct installation safety precautions and has the required equipment to mix and apply the product.

Spray Foam Insulation FAQs
What’s the difference between closed-cell and open-cell insulation?
Open-cell spray foam is lighter, less dense and expands up to 120 times its size. Because of this, it has a lower R-value than closed-cell foam. Closed-cell spray foam is heavier, denser and expands up to 33 times its size.
Each type offers unique benefits depending on your needs. Open-cell insulation provides superior soundproofing, while closed-cell insulation offers structural support.
Is spray foam insulation good for soundproofing?
Overall, spray foam insulation provides adequate soundproofing. The best foam option to keep sound at bay is open-cell insulation. Due to the cell structure and makeup of open-cell foam, it effectively dampens sound waves. However, fiberglass is a better alternative if soundproofing is a priority for you.
Can you use spray foam insulation in existing homes?
Yes, spray foam can be applied on top of existing insulation if the insulation in the home is not wet, moldy or damaged.
What’s the difference between spray foam and fiberglass insulation?
Spray foam insulation has a higher R-value than fiberglass, which makes it a more efficient insulation option. Spray foam also performs better against moisture. However, fiberglass is more affordable and offers better sound dampening.
