Spray Foam Insulation Retford

spray foam insulation retford

Retford joins many other towns in the UK that are at risk of flooding. Unlike some places, however, many of the residents of Retford are so used to flooding that they’re virtually unperturbed by the sight of roads being submerged underwater.

Back in 2007 and 2008, many parts of the town were devastated by flooding, and the problem shows no sign of letting up just yet. While not all floods damage property, may instances of flooding, heavy rain, and other water-related problems do. 

You may be surprised to learn that in places like Retford, where water problems are frequent, insulation can make a difference to the amount of damage a property sustains.

When you install spray foam instead of a traditional material, you can greatly enhance moisture protection.

Icynene spray foam insulation is a unique kind of insulation material that offers many water-related protective benefits.

Choosing spray foam insulation in Retford could ease your worries over water damage and give you a much more comfortable house to come home to every night. 

How Spray Foam Insulation in Retford Can Reduce Water Damage Potential

If water manages to get through your defences and infiltrate your home, then it can cause no end of problems.

There’ll be a lot to clean up immediately, but in the long term, water infiltration could also mean mould, damp, and rot, which can be difficult and expensive to deal with. 

Retford spray foam will reduce the chances of water getting into your home in the first place, and then, if the worst happens, minimise the amount of damage that occurs, saving you time and money on repairs. 

Both types of spray foam insulation – open cell and closed cell – offer protection against water-related problems, but closed-cell spray foam is commonly chosen for homes at risk of serious flooding or prone to other types of water problem.

Closed-cell spray foam is a very unique material that functions as an insulator, an air barrier, and a water-resistant barrier. In contrast, open-cell spray foam is an insulator and an air barrier but is vapour permeable not water-resistant. 

Closed-cell spray foam has a very low water absorption rate, it’s capable of defecting water, and it blocks water transfer. You can use closed-cell spray foam to create a watertight seal between walls and around floors, which will act as a first line of defence against water entry. 

When you choose any spray insulation material, the barrier established will be continuous, so no easy entry points for water will be left in the area where the insulation is installed.

The continuous nature of the spray foam barrier comes with many additional benefits, owing mostly to the fact that it’s an air barrier. 

Both types of spay foam insulation will minimise air leakage, protect against pollutant and allergen entry, and reduce condensation, mould, and damp potential – creating a safer and more comfortable home!

Installing spray foam insulation in your home won’t be a bother, as the professionals will handle the preparation and application.
