Many myths about spray foam insulation persuade people to use different types of insulation instead. But they are called myths for a reason!

Don't let myths about spray foam insulation prevent you from receiving the benefits this type offers! Check out the following information for the truth about spray foam insulation and how Prosite can provide the right services for you.

Myth: Spray Foam Insulation Is Only A Passing Trend

Truth: While spray foam has recently become widely popularized, homes have used it for over 40 years! Due to its high R-value and the many benefits spray foam insulation provides, including energy efficiency, structural integrity, moisture barrier capabilities, and more, it is the future of home and building insulation! Spray foam is much more durable and cost-effective in the long term than other forms of insulation.

Whether you are building a new construction or looking to replace insulation in your current home, you can benefit from the durability and longevity provided by spray foam insulation.

Like any technology, spray foam insulation will continue to improve, becoming more effective than it already is.

Myth: Spray Foam Insulation Is A Health Risk

Truth: Spray foam insulation does release gases as a by-product of the chemical process that occurs during installation. However, this only occurs during the initial implementation. When you work with trained professionals for your spray foam insulation services, you can be sure that we release no off-gases after the insulation has cured.

At Prosite, we require our customers to stay out of the immediate area for about 12 hours after we have completed their service to ensure safety. Before starting our work, we also talk customers through the entire process and answer any questions they might have about the products used.

Myth: Spray Foam Damages Your Home

Truth: You might have heard that spray foam can damage a property's wires, pipes, and other parts. But let's be honest, any service or product you have installed in your home has the potential to cause damage, but usually, it is due to human error and not the product itself; this is precisely the case with spray foam insulation.

If installed incorrectly by someone without the proper knowledge and training, spray foam insulation can cause some problems, but when working with a skilled professional, there should be no issues. Instead, you will only experience the benefits of expertly installed spray foam insulation.

Myth: All Spray Foam Insulation Services Are The Same

Truth: Like any service you can receive, not all spray foam insulation services are the same. The reality is that there are many options to choose from, but some companies are in it to make money, cutting costs where possible and failing to meet the needs of their customers.

But Prosite is not one of those companies, and we pride ourselves on our work and customer service.
