Spray Foam on the Exterior of a Building

exterior spray foam application

Coastal was contracted by Twining Construction to insulate a training facility in Croydon, PA. Spray Foam Engineers installed closed cell foam onto a cinderblock surface around the perimeter of the building to improve thermal performance and create a moisture barrier.

What are the reasons for applying spray foam insulation to the exterior of a structure?

Air leaking into and out of a building significantly degrades thermal performance. Spray polyurethane foam works against air leakage by providing a seamless, full adhered, monolithic air barrier that conforms to irregular shapes and slopes, and allows easy detailing around penetrations.

Spray foam air barriers contribute to improving building durability, energy efficiency, and occupant comfort, health, and safety.
