From offering a cleaner, greener solution to insulation to providing valuable energy savings, Dayton Spray Foam Insulation is your source for spray foam insulation in Dayton and surrounding areas.
Many homeowners understandably have questions about spray foam insulation and installation, such as how much they can save on energy and heating bill costs over traditional insulation.
Take a closer look at how spray foam insulation installation can save you money and provide you with greater comfort and convenience.
In Dayton and surrounding areas, the winters can be harsh and unforgiving at best. Spray foam insulation is not only a cleaner, greener choice, but it’s also better for your health than fiberglass or batt insulation.
Spray foam insulation keeps out water and windy drafts, and can also fit into the smallest cracks and crevices, where cold air can seep in, preventing loss of heat or cooling and helping you to save money over the long term.
And while foam insulation installation is initially more expensive than traditional batt or fiberglass insulation, it provides considerable benefits to your home beyond energy savings. Over the long term, you can expect to save thousands of dollars in heating and cooling costs for your home.
That being said, because foam insulation is relatively new, there are a lot of myths and misconceptions floating around about its safety and effectiveness.

Common Myths and Misconceptions About Spray Foam Insulation
It’s understandable to have questions about spray foam insulation (SFI) and what it can do for your home. In Dayton, spray foam insulation can provide a number of benefits, but there are also many common misconceptions about this versatile insulation material.
Myth: Spray foam insulation isn’t as thick as fiberglass, so it won’t insulate as well.
Not true! At the core of all types of insulation is what’s called the “R-Value” which is a measure of its ability to heat or cool an area.
Despite the fact that SFI is smaller in volume than traditional insulation, it actually has a better R-Value, which means that it consistently heats and cools your home better. Less material also means less waste. If you can get better insulating qualities in your home while using less insulation, why wouldn’t you?
Myth: Spray foam insulation is full of unsafe chemicals.
Spray foam is actually better for your health because of how it’s made. It allows your home to “breathe” while helping to repel mold and mildew which can build up over time on batt or fiberglass insulation.
What’s more, pests which can easily chew through traditional insulation won’t take a second glance at spray foam because it’s inedible to them, so you don’t have to worry about mice, bats or other critters making a nest out of spray foam insulation in your attic!
These features, as well as spray foam’s ability to be used in tight spaces, make a cleaner, greener alternative to old-fashioned insulation.
Myth: Spray foam insulation is only used for new construction.
You may be surprised at the versatility of spray foam! Older buildings can have SFI sprayed in place of existing insulation for even greater energy savings. It’s also great for tight spaces and crevices in basements, under the home and much more.
Spray foam may look thin when it’s first sprayed on an area, but it gradually expands, making it great for a wide range of applications where you need an airtight fit that still provides for excellent insulation from Dayton’s climate.

Spray foam saves you money on heating and cooling costs.
Spray foam is a fantastic investment in your home over the long term. Not only does it work as an excellent thermal barrier for cold, harsh Dayton winters, it also provides substantial relief during those scorching hot Dayton summers, turning your home into a welcome respite against the sun’s harmful rays.
Foam insulation works with nearly any type of home, building or structure.
Dayton Spray Foam Insulation can work with nearly any type construction. Owing to our polarizing climate, you’ll be glad to know that Dayton Spray Foam Insulation installs primarily closed-cell insulation, which is a type of spray foam that provides superior barriers against heat, cold and water.
Foam insulation can even be applied on older construction, making it a great way to finally insulate damp, drafty homes.
Why should I hire an insulation contractor? Can’t I just buy a do-it-yourself (DIY) spray foam kit?
Search your nearest hardware store and you’ll likely find spray foam insulation kits of all kinds. And while these kinds of kits are great for small jobs, such as sealing drafty cracks or crevices, they are not the same quality that you get from hiring a spray foam insulation contractor in Dayton.
Our licensed and insured spray foam contractors can install spray foam in nearly any area of your home, sometimes in as little as a day, helping to ensure you enjoy greater comfort and convenience in your home.
In doing so, we install your new spray foam using specialized equipment and tools which a do it yourself foam insulation kit does not include. Although it may seem simple, installing foam insulation is a technical and complex process that involves many passes over a given area to ensure a watertight fit while still allowing your home to “breathe”.
Another little-known benefit of professional grade spray foam is its ability to adhere to nearly anything including wood, metal and even other insulation. This helps prevent the buildup of mold and mildew and works to keep the air in your home cleaner than traditional insulation.
Some homeowners understandably wonder if spray foam insulation is “too good” — in other words, if the seal it makes could contribute to poor indoor air quality.
However, as long as the room or area you are considering installing spray foam insulation in is properly ventilated, you should have no problem at all with your indoor air quality — it could even be substantially improved because of spray foam’s ability to seal out moisture which can lead to mold and mildew spores infiltrating the air.
Yes, it does! If you live in or around downtown Dayton or surrounding communities, you know that the traffic can be a headache. The noise from the commute can impact your quality of life, and if you live on a busy street, you may have been told that you just have to “deal with it”.
Not anymore! SFI also provides superb noise dampening qualities, so it’s excellent for use in between walls or areas of your home that are facing high traffic areas.
Imagine enjoying greater peace and quiet no matter how much traffic goes by — it’s possible with Dayton Spray Foam Insulation installation!
