Spray Foam and Fiberglass Insulation
Insulation contractors often use fiberglass insulation in new construction, and it works well in open joist attics and other easily accessible spaces. The thin glass fibers can be loose-fill or packed into rolls or batts. Fiberglass fibers trap air to create the insulation barrier.
Blown-in, loose fiberglass completely fills enclosed spaces like walls and crawl spaces so that it fills in around pipes and wiring, eliminating air gaps. The main advantage of fiberglass insulation is its lower cost. Central Texas Spray Foam Insulation in Stephenville, Texas installs fiberglass insulation but we recommend considering spray foam insulation for your home or business in Stephenville, Texas as an alternative.
With spray foam, two liquid chemicals mix as they are sprayed and expand into a foam that fills a space completely, blocks moisture and sound, prevents air leaks and improves structural integrity.
Instead of using solid materials like fiberglass or cellulose to insulate a commercial or residential structure in Stephenville, Texas, insulation contractors at Central Texas Spray Foam Insulation, spray a liquid that expands to between 30 and 60 times its original volume.
The foam created by combining two liquid chemicals fills a crawl space or wall with insulation entirely within seconds, dries rapidly, and cures completely within 24 hours. If you have a pole barn or bardominium in Stephenville, Texas, spray foam insulation in the walls and attic make them cozier in winter and cooler in summer. Whether you need commercial or home insulation in Stephenville, Texas, spray foam insulation saves you money on your energy bills.
There are three types of spray foam insulation, and each has specific benefits.
Open-cell Spray Foam Insulation
Open-cell Spray Foam Insulation is softer and less dense, making it better tolerate structural expanding and contracting due to seasonal temperature changes. Open-cell costs the least of the three options but provides the best soundproofing insulation. Central Texas Spray Foam Insulation may recommend open cell for your house in Stephenville, Texas, if you need to block out traffic or noisy neighbors.
Closed-cell Spray Foam Insulation
Closed-cell Spray Foam Insulation is denser and harder when dry, which contributes to enhanced structural strength and provides a high degree of water resistance. The insulation value, measured as R-Value, is higher per inch of foam than open cell. If Central Texas Spray Foam Insulation fills the walls of your Stephenville, Texas commercial building with closed-cell foam, you can expect the structure to better withstand mother nature’s worst. The higher the density of the foam, the more it adds to the building's structural stability.
High-Density Spray Foam Insulation
High-Density Spray Foam Insulation takes closed-cell insulation a step further. It’s denser, more water repellant, and has the highest insulation factor per inch. Roofing contractors use high density spray foam insulation for roof insulation and repair and commercial insulation of exterior walls.
The professionals at Central Texas Foam Insulation will recommend the best spray foam insulation choice for your house in Stephenville, Texas, your commercial structure in Cranbury, Texas, or your agricultural building in Glenrose, Texas.

Why Spray Foam Insulation?
Initially used in airplanes in the 1940s, spray foam insulation has continued to innovate, advance, and improve, so it has become the fastest-growing, most popular insulation application today.
Spray foam insulation fills the crawlspace, walls, and ceiling completely and seals every crack, hole, and crevice left by plumbers and electricians. Even the most intricately shaped spaces around windows and skylights fill with insulation. R-value, an industry measurement of insulation capability, is higher per inch for spray foam insulation than other insulation types. R-value for closed-cell spray foam runs between six and seven per inch.
Open-cell measures between 3.6 and 3.7. In contrast, loose fiberglass insulation runs between 2.2 and 2.9. Higher R-value means conditioned air stays in, and the cold or hot outside air stays where it belongs. Central Texas Spray Foam Insulation in Stephenville, Texas, installs spray foam insulation in any structure in central Texas. You then enjoy healthier air for your employees in your business in Cranberry, comfortable temperatures in your house in Cleburne, and lower energy bills for your pole barn in Stephenville.
Spray foam insulation installed in a home or business in Stephenville, Texas, prevents water from entering a building more effectively than any other insulation. FEMA considers spray foam insulation flood damage-resistant products. A flood damage-resistant material can withstand prolonged contact with water without sustaining significant damage. Read about FEMA requirements and factors affecting flood insurance rates. Increasing structural strength with spray foam insulation, reduces flood damage, too. Installing water-resistant insulation that seals any cracks and holes keeps water outside.
Attic or basement spaces that are not treated by your HVAC system can trap water vapor produced by seasonal temperature changes. Water drips from the attic and damages your walls and ceiling. Insulation installed by Central Texas Spray Foam Insulation in Stephenville, TX, prevents big temperature swings in these spaces, preventing condensation. Avoiding these kinds of leaks saves you from costly repair bills.
Something hollow is not as strong as something solid. Filling all the empty spaces in an agricultural building in Stephenville, Texas, with spray foam insulation, makes that structure sturdier and able to withstand high winds.

Today’s home buyers look for well-insulated homes. No one wants to take on a piece of property with high heating and air conditioning bills.

Not replacing insulation means using less material, making spray foam insulation a green choice.
