During a new construction or renovation project, making sure your commercial building is energy efficient can have an immediate and significant financial impact on heating and cooling costs. Did you know that spray foam roofing helps improve insulation for commercial buildings? Well, it’s true. However, there is one other thing that you might not even be aware of, and that is the fact that spray foam roofing helps you sell your property faster! Spray foam roofing delivers thermal, air, and moisture barriers to provide the highest R-value per inch, which means the material offers better insulation for the building. The best part is that it’s quick to install and comes with a variety of other benefits. This means that you can easily raise the value of your property and enjoy a few added bonuses while you’re at it.
Spray Foam Insulation Is An Investment That Will Usually Outlast The Life Of The Building
Spray foam is a polyurethane substance that can typically insulate as much as 50% more effectively than traditional fiberglass batts. The spray foam prevents air leakage, which is the most common reason for expensive utility bills. The costly leaks allow cool air to seep in during the winter and an air conditioned interior to bleed in the summer. Foam provides an airtight, lifetime seal that sticks to wall studs and creates an air barrier around your commercial building. In addition, polyurethane offers no food source or nesting material for rodents like the fluffy pink, cotton batts do.
Spray Foam Is Also Resistant To The Threat Of Moisture
Fortunately, spray foam is waterproof. This makes it easier to rely on for controlled insulation no matter where your business may be or what the conditions are outside. Spray foam insulation reduces moisture and mold. In order to reproduce, molds need tiny spores. There are molds that can grow on wood, paper, carpet, and foods and there’s no practical way to remove them in indoor environments except when you contain moisture by effectively sealing your commercial building. Most businesses today insulate to not only bar air from coming in and out but to protect it from elements like molds, rodents, moisture, and dust.
Spray foam is recommended due to its better standard R-values. The goal for any business out there is to be able to cut down on costs as much as possible in order to raise their bottom line. Elevate your bottom line by having spray foam insulation installed today!
