About Spray Foam
Spray foam, also known as expanding foam or spray insulation, is a polyurethane based product made from a combination of two liquid chemicals: isocyanate and polyol resin. When put together, they rapidly expand to greater than 30 times the original volume.
Once fully cured, which takes minutes, every crack and crevasse becomes filled, outside infiltration is eliminated, and the compound adds rigidity and strength to the area.
Spray foam has been in use for over thirty years and continues to gain traction among contractors and customers worldwide. Despite its costliness, spray foam insulation for Ottawa residents is a solid investment. Its benefits can be plainly seen, both in the short and long terms.
Not only can Spraytech Insulation impeccably apply top-quality spray foam, thereby reducing heat exchange, stopping air leaks, and increasing you property’s energy efficiency, they can also help keep moisture, pests, and gaseous agents out.
A recent analysis showed that homes with spray foam can reduce energy usage up to 5,638 kWh per year compared to the same home insulated and air sealed with other insulation. This amounts a greenhouse gas reduction of 1,556 kg of CO2 per year or, a 33% reduction in the annual emissions of a car.
Spraytech Insulation for Ottawa residences and commercial properties is a great choice, as the high-end products we use create both a top-notch insulator and an impenetrable sealant. And our team brings their expertise and professionalism to every resident and business owner in and around Ottawa, Montreal and the Northern United States.
Spraytech Insulation – Ottawa’s top spray foam company
Whether your residence or business is a new build, a renovation, or a retrofitting, our high-quality foam insulation is the best choice. It has the unique ability to fill holes and gaps that would be nearly impossible to fill otherwise, thanks to its high R-value and air barrier characteristics.
After the foam expands, eliminating cracks, crevices, gaps, and voids completely, it goes through a curing process. After this process, there are zero harmful chemicals emitted into the air, thereby making spray foam environmentally friendly and safe to use anywhere.
Once finished, the end result is a durable, lightweight material. No other insulation product out there can equal the performance of spray foam unless additional products, materials, and processes are utilized.
Depending on the class of spray foam insulation used for Ottawa based buildings, open-cell or closed-cell, the strength and water resistance can increase even more.
The Spraytech Insulation squad has extensive knowledge pertaining to all the characteristics of expanding foam insulation, and many other insulation types, as well as the many benefits.

Open-cell vs. Closed-cell Spray Foam Insulation in Ottawa
Spraytech Insulation is an accredited company comprised solely of contractors that are certified in all forms of spray foam insulation for Ottawa residents.
Open and closed-cell spray polyurethane foam insulation in Ottawa homes and businesses provide significant improvements when compared to traditional insulation materials and techniques. Open cell spray foam is a softer, slightly weaker material that, apart from being a good insulator, can act as a sound barrier as well.
Closed-cell foam insulation for buildings in and around Ottawa cures to a stronger form and creates a shield from air and vapor infiltration, as well as being a comparable insulator to the open cell type.
Our expertise, coupled with our in-depth consultation and estimate, will shape our best recommendations to meet your needs. They typically involve our skilled contractors utilizing both types of spray foam insulation to maximize the various sections within your Ottawa property. Here are some differences between the two types.
More About Open-cell Spray Foam
The reason why open cell spray foam is softer than closed cell is due to the material composition. Tiny cells of the foam break open during application and curing causing air to fill the “open” space within the product. Typically, open cell spray foam insulation in your Ottawa based building, will provide an R-value or, thermal/vapor shield, in the range of 3.5 and 4.5 per inch. Compared to traditional forms of insulation, the open cell R-value is superior
More About Closed-cell Spray Foam
If you’re looking to best improve the performance of your building’s envelope, then closed cell spray foam is the highest quality insulation material you can get.
After just one application, the closed-cell spray polyurethane foam institutes a moisture, air, and vapor barrier that regulates temperature, increases structure-wide efficiency, and saves you a lot of money in energy and construction costs. Furthermore, due to closed cell’s strength and rigidity, your building’s structural integrity will be improved as well.
The chemical composition of closed cell spray foam, for Ottawa residents’ projects, differs from open cell as it is combined with a gas to keep the cells from breaking “open” and remaining tightly packed together, while insulating through seamless expansion.
The areas within your home or business where closed-cell insulation is the best choice are: basements, attics, crawl spaces and walls – places that need the highest R-value possible – due to the components and equipment housed within those spaces.
The energy, heat and vapors from within those spaces need to be evacuated in a calculated way, not absorbed or transferred into other living/working spaces. The same goes for air, vapor, moisture, and heat from the outside world. With an R-value between 6 and 7.5 per inch, closed-cell spray foam will allow your Ottawa-based structure to exceed building code standards regarding this type of performance.
