Rebuilding after Hurricane Sandy - Crawl Spaces

Posted by John Achille on Mon, May 06, 2013

More than six months later, residents in the Northeast United States continue to rebuild after Hurricane Sandy. The storm caused millions worth of damage to homes and businesses along the East Coast, forcing many to start over.

Closed Cell spray foam is the best method to insulate and create an air barrier in crawl spaces, walls and attic.  It serves as an environmentally friendly option and is FEMA-approved.

As a result, this form of spray foam insulation helps prevent potential flood damage, which could cost thousands to repair. According to FEMA, Closed Cell SPF is considered a Class 5 Flood Damage-Resistant Material, which makes it “Highly resistant to floodwater damage, including damage caused by moving water. These materials can survive wetting and drying and may be successfully cleaned after a flood to render them free of most harmful pollutants.” To build a flood-resistant building, you also have to consider other factors into consideration, such as materials and framing.

In addition to flood protection, Closed Cell insulation offers similar benefits as other forms of spray foam insulation, including the ability to keep heat and air from getting in or out of the home, which will make your home significantly more energy efficient as a result, lower your energy bills.

If you have any questions on Closed Cell or any other type of spray foam insulation, contact Coastal today at 1-800-535-0028
