Can spray foam insulation be done in cold weather?
The easy answer is yes! Sprayed polyurethane foam (SPF) may be used in all seasons. Sometimes temperatures may need to be suitable because some conditions can affect the process. Professional spray foam contractors use a unique formula to account for a variety of temperatures and humidity. Sometimes heated equipment is used to ensure that the foam is applied at the correct temperature and cures appropriately no matter the climate temperature and humidity.
Reitzel Insulation has spent 45 years mastering the techniques for spraying foam insulation. We have the skills and expertise that allow us to apply a premium product no matter the temperature. However, be careful who you choose to use the spray foam. Unfortunately, there are inexperienced contractors and subpar SPF products out there that don't cut it. That's why at Reitzel Insulation, we guarantee our work.
Sadly, there may be misinformation on the internet that says it can not be done. However, we continue to educate homeowners it is possible.
What's the Difference Between Open Cell and Closed Cell Foam Insulation?
Spray foam insulation is referred to as open cell or closed cell, and the difference is between the small bubbles or cells that create the foam. Open cell foam is full of cells that are not completely encapsulated. Closed cell foam is made up of cells that are entirely closed. They have both have different advantages, and you would choose the type that best fits your needs. Consult our experts to know which type would be best for your application.
Spray Foam Insulation in Winter
Due to freezing temperatures during Ontario winters, there are two things to consider. Low expansion and condensation. For metal structures, have a closed cell applied to your project may take longer because steel is highly conductive. When it comes to closed cell spray foam concerns in cold weather, people are usually looking to insulate their metal structure or barn. Open cell spray foam has a much higher expansion rate.
Our insulation contractors are meticulous when spraying foam. We check for condensation, and other know issues to make sure that the foam adheres appropriately. We have all the proper equipment and quality products to get the job done right.
