When Should I Choose Open-Cell Spray Foam Insulation?

Of all the insulation options on the market today, open-cell spray foam could easily be low on your list of choices. Not only does it seem to have a lower R-value than its closed-cell spray foam counterpart, but it may not provide the protection levels you expect from your new insulation installation. So, why would you choose open-cell spray foam at all?

What you may not know is that open-cell spray foam has its own set of advantages when it comes to maximizing your insulation potential. Here are some reasons you should consider it for your next insulation project:

  • Cost – A great reason to choose open-cell spray foam is because of the cost. While closed-cell spray foam is affordable in its own right, open-cell spray foam is even more so, making it a wonderfully budget-friendly option for many applications.
  • Placement – Traditional batt insulation has a few downsides; primarily that it cannot go into the small, hidden places where airflow can still be a problem. Rather than forgoing insulation altogether or trying to stuff leftover insulation into these spaces, open-cell spray foam can provide the insulative benefits you need without that hassles.
