Mantua NJ Spray Foam Insulation Project
Another fantastic home built by Dolphin Homes! Fortified by spray foam insulation!
If done with any other material besides spray foam insulation this could fail!
Newton's Law is one reason for other materials to fail over time... gravity will pull or make other materials sag. Other materials might have to be manually cut on site to make that material fit, which can lead to installer error. Not spray foam insulation we spray it directly on the substrate and it adheres to the form its sprayed on!
Ceiling slopes insulated perfectly!
Solar gain is real! In the summer months solar gain would normally heat this area up! Between the solar gain and unconditioned air racing through a baffle vent this area would be a major (and is in many homes) thermal protection defect. Spray foam is the perfect material for this type of area. It will provide comfort all year round!
Note the gable wall is fully protected!
Doing your attic roof deck isn't enough. You must do all areas connected to unconditioned space! This also includes soffit over hangs!!
High Crawl Space gets disconnected by spray foam!
You can do the walls or the ceiling in your crawl space. If you are in a flood zone, or a body of water the only way to go is the ceiling of your crawl space. If you are not in flood zone or near a body of water, spray foam the walls!!
