How Foam Insulation Affects the Construction Process

 

Unlike the confusing rumors you may have heard, foam does not change your framing very much. You will save money during the building stage, if you make the decision to use foam before you frame. Listed below are the changes you may expect in a foam home:

 

You do not need the BIG additional expense of 2x6ís for your walls just to get a higher R-Value. Save the money & upgrade your insulation to foam.

Leave the corners of your walls with a bigger internal gap when framing. Then we can better seal and insulate the corners with foam.

Use a foam gasket between the bottom plate of your perimeter walls and your slab. This stops unwanted outdoor air infiltration from entering.

When foam insulating your attic floor, use sealed insulated recessed lights. These housings will not allow hot or cold moisture laden air from your attic, to enter your conditioned living areas. Improves overall comfort levels.

If you choose to foam insulate your roof deck (a closed attic system), you will need to eliminate all ridge vents and soffit vents. Your attic will then become part of the thermal envelope. It will be much cooler and cleaner.

When using a closed attic system, have the framers build attic separation walls at the garage, carport, front and back porches. Then we can properly seal your attic above all conditioned living areas.

Finally, a foam home does not need as much air conditioning or heating. The average foam home will use up to 30% smaller A/C units. One of our Energy Consultants will help you properly size your units.
