Spray foam insulation is a type of insulation, as the name suggests, that is sprayed on in varying levels of thickness depending on your Dallas home or business’s specific heating and cooling needs. It was first developed in the 1940s by the military and applied to airplanes. It wasn’t until the 1970s that it started being applied to homes.
There are a number of different systems that can be used to apply spray foam insulation in your Dallas home or business, but the most common ones are the two component high- pressure system and the two component low-pressure spray foam. The high-pressure system is generally used in new constructions, whereas the low-pressure is primarily reserved for remodel jobs where drywall is already in place.
As far as your insulation options go, spray foam often makes the most sense. It’s extremely effective at its job and it also can lower construction costs and meet stringent building codes.
