• Spray foam insulation is a very popular form of insulation as it has many benefits that are superior to other forms of insulation.
  • The biggest overall benefit of spray foam insulation is the amount of money you will save on both energy costs & the fact that this form insulation lasts longer than other insulation types.
  • Spray foam insulation should be used on all new construction builds for longevity, cost efficiency, and a cleaner environment.


The benefits of spray foam insulation vs other insulation have been in the back of people’s minds for far too long. As a home or business owner, you must ask yourself what you’re looking for in a building – technically speaking. Our answer is that we want to help build a community that has dry, warm, environmentally friendly, and overall healthy spaces. If your home needs an insulation upgrade or if you’re building a new home or business, then there’s no excuse as to why you should wait any longer to have Eagle Insulation install spray foam insulation for you. But, if you’re still unsure about spray foam insulation, here are 7 reasons why you should use spray foam on your new build. 


Best Reasons Why To Use Spray Foam


Reason 1: Energy-Efficient

One thing that you must look at as a home or business owner is whether or not the spray foam insulations cost is worth the energy-efficiency aspect of it. The answer is, although to install spray foam is a little more expensive than your typical insulation, it will save you money in the long run because unlike your typical insulation, spray foam does not sag, deteriorate, or do anything else that would require you to get all new insulation. Our spray foam insulation is resistant to severe weather and floods, has near-zero air permeability, increases the building’s overall strength, and more. Keep reading to see what we mean! 


Reason 2: Moisture Barrier

If you haven’t experienced living or working in a building that has water or moisture infiltrations, then you probably know someone who has. What a nightmare it is, too. The reason that so many buildings have moisture issues that inevitably lead to mold growth and mildew is because of the insulation not doing its job. With spray foam, it is guaranteed that water will not get through, even when it gets wet. 


Reason 3: Still Effective When Wet

If you have a flooding emergency in your home or building where a pipe bursts, faulty drainage, or a freak-accident like a sink suddenly bursting, then typical insulation would have to be removed and replaced because it cannot withstand that much water. You won’t have to worry about that because even when spray foam insulation is wet, it is still effective. This form of insulation is prepared for even the least expected things to happen. 


Reason 4: Air Barrier

The key to spray foam insulation being a barrier to air is the flexibility of it. Spray foam insulation was designed to be able to fit into every nook and cranny, and every crack and crevice of the space you’re insulating. When it is properly installed, it can be put into those tiny spaces, and it expands due to a chemical reaction within the installation gun. With this benefit, filtering the amount of outside air that gets inside, naturally reduces allergens and pollen that sneak in through other insulations. 


Reason 5: Enhanced Structural Integrity

Like we mentioned above, when applied properly, spray foam insulation fits into even the tiniest of spots and expands, creating an overall stronger and sturdier structure so that even the strongest winds, rain, and other severe weather won’t stand a chance against the building. This is especially important for attic insulation. With this unique feature that, we can enhance the structural integrity of the buildings in our community, taking another step to creating safer spaces. 


Reason 6: Higher R-Values

R-value is simply referring to thermal resistance, or in even simpler terms, a material’s resistance to heat flow. The higher the R-value, the better the insulation. It all depends on the insulation’s thickness and denseness. In this aspect, spray foam insulation is far superior to competing forms of insulation and it doesn’t lose its R-value over time! 


Reason 7: A Long-Term Investment

Here at Eagle Insulation, we understand that investing in a new home or building is a huge deal. That’s why we want to make sure that it is properly insulated, creating a safe space. Spray foam insulation is the way to go because it saves you money in the long run, reduces your carbon footprint, has the flexibility that’s necessary to achieve being a barrier to unwanted things, and more. 


Why Eagle Insulation?

Eagle Insulation was built entirely on the NEED for spray foam. Our goal is to create safer, more environmentally friendly, and properly insulated houses and commercial buildings. In order to do so, we have to start with the insulation itself. Like we mentioned at the beginning, the benefits of spray foam insulation have been on the back burner of people’s minds for far too long.
