Spray Foam Insulation by Josh Lowe's Dr. Energy Saver
To increase your comfort and decrease your energy bills in Vancouver, Salem, Hillsboro, Portland, and their surrounding communities, embrace the impact of spray foam insulation by Josh Lowe's Energy Solution. In the insulation world, the higher the R-value, the better the insulation. The poly spray foam we use has a higher R-value per inch than any other commonly used insulation material — R-6.2 or higher, depending on the formulation.
Some of the benefits of spray foam insulation include:
Fast-Acting: Spray foam air-seals and insulates in one step. Its ability to expand and fill gaps and cracks makes it an ideal air-sealing material, and it stays in place because of its super-adhesive qualities.
Waterproof: Moisture soaks through fiberglass and cellulose insulation, but polyurethane spray foam stops it cold. Its closed-cell structure means that water can't migrate from one tiny cell or bubble to a neighboring one.
Air Seals: A gap of 5% in an insulated area can diminish your overall insulation performance by as much as 50%. But with spray foam's expanding super-sticky characteristics, you will fill more voids.
When applying spray foam insulation, there are a couple of things you must consider to experience the best possible result:
Experience Helpful: It takes a bit of experience to get the proper feel of applying spray foam, especially two-part foams. With their different expansion rates and other qualities, it is wise to have a proven professional from Josh Lowe's Dr. Energy Saver to apply the high-expanding foam.
Temperature Sensitive: Cold temperatures affect the chemistry that causes a foaming action. It's critical to keep spray foam cans or two-part foam canisters within a specific temperature range for a successful application.

Frequently Asked Spray Foam Insulation Questions
- How long does it take for foam insulation to cure?
- Closed-cell spray foam does require a 24-hour evacuation from the home (all pets, too!) before being able to re-enter the home that has been spray foamed.
- How long does spray foam insulation last?
- Properly installed, closed-cell spray foam does not deteriorate, so it will last for the life of the house.
- How thick should spray foam insulation be?
- Two to three inches of closed-cell spray foam is usually all you need for an effective air-tight barrier that will stop conditioned air from escaping and also help prevent unwanted air from coming in to your home.
- What is the R value of 2 inches of spray foam?
- For closed-cell spray foam, it is R-6.5 to R-7. It has a higher R-value per inch than fiberglass, and you only need a few inches to have a very effective air-tight insulating material that also fills in nooks and crannies.
- Is spray foam insulation worth the money?
- Closed-cell spray foam is going to last much longer than fiberglass plus be a much more effective insulating material. Over a longer time frame, spray foam is the better value as you will not need to have it re-sprayed, it insulates better, and animals cannot nest in it (like they love to do in fiberglass).
