Builders, architects, homeowners and businesses agree: Traditional fiberglass insulation is no match for today’s spray foam insulation as a better long-term value for their insulation dollars. Indeed, with rising energy costs, there has never been a better time to opt for foam insulation in new, remodeled or renovation projects. Unlike conventional fiberglass, which may register a high ‘R’ value yet allow outside air to circulate within the material creating drafts or cold spots, foam insulation provides an airtight seal that is impervious to external elements. What’s more, areas that are difficult to reach may be completely missed using traditional fiberglass insulation, negating much of its intended benefits. By choosing spray foam insulation installed by the pros at Nautilus Insulation, all of those concerns are effectively precluded by the airtight qualities that only foam insulation can provide. Most importantly for Jersey Shore residents and businesses, foam insulation addresses the daunting challenge of flood damage. In fact, sprayed polyurethane foam and closed-cell plastic foams are the only materials that FEMA classifies as acceptable flood damage-resistant insulation materials for floors, walls and ceilings in Special Flood Hazard Areas (SFHAs).
