OPEN CELL SPRAY FOAM
Open Cell Spray Foam, also referred to as half pound foam or Icynene, is an excellent product for use in attic roof decks, wood-framed walls, cathedral ceilings and floors. By expanding 100x its liquid form, open cell provides a seamless air barrier which eliminates uncontrolled air leakage, lowers energy costs, improves indoor air quality, and increases comfort by eliminating drafts and reducing airborne noise.
Depending on the level and quality of existing insulation and how cool you keep your home, you can save between 20%-60% on your electric bill!
The reason spray foam can reduce your energy bill so much is because it attaches itself directly to the plywood roof deck and is sprayed to where the roof meets the exterior walls. This completely seals off the attic from the outside which prevents the roof from radiating heat into the attic and stops hot, humid outdoor air from coming through the soffits. Spray foamed attics will be within 10 degrees of the living space instead of being 110+ degrees with conventional insulation. This puts less stress on your ductwork and A/C to keep the house cool and reduces A/C wear and tear over time!
The best part is, it never degrades or settles and will remain in place for the life of the home. We offer a lifetime warranty against defects. Compass is proud to offer top-tier open cell spray foam manufactured by UPC, Carlisle and Icynene-Lapolla.
