How Long Does Spray Foam Insulation Last?


If you're thinking of having your home treated with spray foam insulation, you're probably wondering just how long it will last.  Or at least whether or not you'll need to replace it anytime soon.


Spray foam is an inert polymer.  What exactly is that?  A polymer is a material such as rubber or plastic.  Poly means "many" and "mer" means "part", so a polymer is many parts of molecules strung together to make a durable product.  If you're familiar with rubber, spray foam is similar to that.


Spray foam, rubber balls, plastic pens are made from "inert" polymers.  "Inert" just means that they don't change.  They don't rot like wood, rust like metal, or go bad like that food in the back of your fridge.  If you put a toy Lego in your attic, and checked on it in ten years, it would be the same.  In other words, spray foam is just like many other rubber or plastic items made from inert polymers.  They don't break down by themselves.


Okay, so what's the real answer?


The answer is simple.  Spray foam insulation will typically last for the lifetime of your home itself.  If done correctly by an experienced company, you won't have to replace it.


This is good for you because:

  • It can reduce your home energy costs up to 50%

  • It will reduce potential for mold and mildew

  • It will eliminate a good bit of outside noise

  • It can make walls of your home stronger

  • A home insulated with spray foam usually has a higher resale value.

So you will get all these benefits and much more for years to come.  Best of all, you won't have to worry about replacing your insulation every 10 years.
