Spray Foam Insulation vs Batt Insulation: 3 Things To Consider Spray Foam Insulation vs Batt Insulation: 3 Things To Consider

Installing spray foam insulation has become a popular alternative to batt insulation. If you are trying to decide between spray foam and batt insulation, here are a few things that you will want to consider. 

1. Gaps

One of the biggest differences between spray foam insulation and batt insulation is the gaps in coverage. When you are insulating your house, you want to make sure that every part of the ceiling or walls is covered. With spray foam insulation, this is entirely possible. You can coat the entire wall or ceiling with the foam. If you are installing bat insulation, this is technically not possible in some cases. You will have to use a roll of insulation and try to go around rafters. This can create some large gaps in coverage and decrease efficiency in your home.

2. Convenience

In addition to covering the space better, spray foam insulation is very easy to install. You simply put the foam in a sprayer and then spray it onto the area that you want covered. With batt insulation, you have to use wire to hold it into place. 

3. Time

In addition to being easier and more effective, spray foam insulation will be able to be installed in much less time than batt. This can help you meet deadlines and make more money elsewhere.
