How does spray foam insulation work?
We use Huntsman brand products which is the world-leading provider of polyurethane spray foam insulation. Compared to traditional insulation, spray foam expands to fill gaps for a tighter and more secure seal to defend against intrusions such as pests, allergens, wind, and moisture.
What is the spray foam installation process?
Because spray foam insulation is lightweight and can be formed into any shape, installation is as simple as molding it where it’s needed including nooks and crevices. After a single application, you’ll notice a number of benefits that’ll last a literal lifetime.
What is the average cost of spray foam insulation?
The cost of your spray foam insulation will vary depending on the size of your home or establishment. You can speak with a certified spray foam installer at Foam Bear for more details on what factors can influence the final cost, but the fact remains that you’ll save money in the long run. We also offer low interest rates for further savings!

How long does spray foam insulation last?
While traditional insulation needs to be replaced roughly every 15 years, spray foam insulation will protect your building’s integrity for anywhere around 80-100 years with little to no maintenance required.
Will spray foam insulation lower my energy bill?
Because spray foam insulation provides a tight seal to close off gaps, the lack of openings for air to escape means that your air conditioner can work at peak efficiency without overworking itself to make up for the loss of cool air. Of course, this means a lower electric bill.
What is the difference between open-cell and closed-cell insulation?
Closed-cell foam has a higher density to act as a barrier against air, water, and vapor to prevent drafts, mold, and condensation. Open-cell foam has a wider range of expansion which is ideal for closing off larger gaps. This type of foam is also great for blocking out air and noise, and is typically used for interior use.
Will spray foam insulation increase my property value?
Many home buyers appreciate the benefits that spray foam insulation has to offer and will gladly pay extra for the upgrade. The bonus perk is especially enticing to buyers since it’s already installed, saving them time from having to request the service themselves.
