Spray Foam Best Solution For Open Beams
Location: Eugene, OR
This homeowner up Lorane Highway in Eugene, OR decided to drywall this open ceiling (see BEFORE photo) and called Josh Lowe’s Dr. Energy Saver to get a proposal. Our Energy Consultant saw that it was an open ceiling and suggested closed-cell spray foam, rather than fiberglass or rigid foam board, as the superior insulating material.
Our spray foam insulation crew sprayed in three inches of closed-cell spray foam (see photo) between the beams, and then the homeowner was able to drywall right over it. Besides being the more superior insulating material for this job, it also helps with soundproofing.
