R-Value is a measure of how well a specific type of insulation can resist heat flow. The higher the R-value, the more effective the material is at preventing heat transfer, or loss in the case of home insulation. For example, traditional fiberglass Insulation has an R-value of 3 per inch, while closed cell spray foam has an R-value of 7 per inch! Open cell spray foam has an R-value of about 4 per inch.
Homeowners considering insulating their existing home, insulating new construction, or even insulating a new addition can’t beat the insulative qualities of spray foam.
Properly applied spray foam insulation provides an unparalleled air barrier, exceptional insulation density and R-value, and ultimately, lower bills for energy use in heating and cooling your home.
If you’re just exploring the possibilities when it comes to insulating your home, you’ve probably stumbled on spray foam insulation.
There’s a lot to like about spray foam, and although spray foam can cost a little more than traditional fiberglass batts (that pink fluffy stuff you see in your walls), the benefits of using spray foam instead are incredibly expansive.

Spray foam tends to be more expensive up front than fiberglass batts or blown cellulose (which is made of cut-up newspaper and other recycled materials), but it can’t be beat in terms of recouping costs for most homeowners. We usually tell people that if you’re in your home for more than a few years, the benefits will outweigh the upfront costs quite quickly.
Spray foam is usually about 3X the cost of blown cellulose and 5X the cost of fiberglass batting.
Spray foam is great for basements, where it can help to provide an important moisture barrier. In the damp environment of the Atlantic Coast and Northeast regions, spray foam is a great option for the joist band, the space around the top of your basement wall. It can help reduce air leakage in this void, and it provides a critical waterproofing.
Spray foam is excellent for privacy and reducing exterior noise in your home or building. Open cell foam is particularly sound-proof, but closed cell spray foam also provides a great sound-reducing barrier for spaces of all kinds.
If you live near a busy road or simply like not worrying about your neighbors, Solanco Spray Foam can help.
