Spray Foam Loft Insulation Scotland
Loft Insulation Installers Scotland
Spray foam insulation, often known as spray foam or foam insulation is now Scotland’s most popular loft insulation choice and for good reason!
Spray foam insulation is adaptable, and it can be used to insulate your roof, loft, walls, and floor, retaining warmth and lowering energy costs. It’s especially good for narrow loft spaces with small gaps between the rafters.
Spray foam loft insulation is a liquid foam sprayed into place which dries into a thick layer of insulation. Spray foam is noted for its excellent resistance to heat transfer and effectiveness in preventing undesired air infiltration. It is an effective insulator of two types; the closed cell spray foam and the open-cell spray foam.
While there are a variety of techniques to insulate your loft, spray foam is the best option for various different reasons.
Spray foam has been a popular insulation solution in Scotland since the early 80s and has progressed significantly over the years.

Types Of Spray Foam Insulation
Isothane’s product range of spray foam insulation has been designed for maximum efficiency, optimum heat retention and performance, yet it’s still extremely affordable. The two most popular types of Isothane spray foam insulation are; open cell and closed cell, both have their own functions and it really comes down to your property and needs which one is the best choice.
Open cell and close cell spray foam can be installed separately or compliment one another main depending on the project.

Why choose Spray Foam Loft Insulation?
Water penetrates quickly through cracks in pipes and vents, exposing your property to bacteria and rot. Therefore, to put it another way, your home will be vulnerable to costly damages. It typically needs to be replaced. However, spray foam retains it’s properties no matter how wet it gets. Spray foam also propels itself into minor cracks and crevices, lowering the likelihood of water coming into your home.
Saves You £££
Spray foam insulation may appear to be an expensive option at first, but it will save you money on energy costs in the long run. According to the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, £400 to £600 of the annual average home in Scotland spending could be wasted due to drafts, air leaks around openings, and obsolete heating and cooling systems. On the other hand, Spray foam insulation expands to seal cracks and holes, so utility systems won’t have to work as hard
because they won’t have to compensate for lost air. It’s difficult to say whether alternative loft insulation solutions will pay for themselves, but open-cell and closed-cell spray foam often pay for themselves in three to five years. Moreover, an energy-efficient home has a greater home value since it appears more appealing to potential purchasers.
One of the most significant advantages of spray foam is its ability to reduce indoor allergens such as dust, mould, mildew, pollen, and other pollutants. These allergens do not enter your house or office through open doors and windows but rather through your walls. Although pest waste hurts air quality, insects and rodents aren’t drawn to spray foam because it is not suitable as food or a nest. Therefore, consider spray foam insulation if you want to eliminate allergy and asthma symptoms and chemical sensitivities. It’s a non-toxic choice that keeps people feeling good; the chemical mixture won’t emit harmful toxins like formaldehyde into the environment.
If you do mind drafts, spray foam has the added benefit of preventing temperature swings in a structure. Instead, it helps to maintain a constant environment in the house or business. This is due to the hermetic barrier provided by spray foam insulation, which keeps your home warm, dry, and comfortable while preserving it from the elements. Other insulation methods, unlike spray foam, do not establish this seal because they do not adhere to every surface.
Extra Building Strength
Spray foam insulation will provide additional strengths to buildings. This is because spray foam is a spray-applied plastic with high adhesive properties; it is extremely dense. Spray foam acts as a glue that holds building components together, giving the overall structure extra strength and durability. This sort of insulation functions as a barrier against humidity and wind, and it strengthens floors, walls, and ceilings in only one step. Consider spray foam insulation if you want a long-lasting insulating alternative.
Quick, Easy Installation
Spray foams appeal (in part) stems from it’s ease of installation and being capable or reaching hard to reach areas. Spray foam is easy to install any time of
year, even if you require insulation in a difficult-to-reach spot like a crawl space. It’s a non-
intrusive process: during installation, a team of experts will use a spray foam cannon to spray the
materials on your designated area. Because the insulation dries fast, it should be ready in less
than a day. Therefore, among the numerous advantages, spray foam also offers an easy-to-install
option that can be DIYed.
Traditional insulation can lose its efficiency; however, spray foam operates as it should for decades because it comprises powerful chemical products. Polyurethane and isocyanate are the only materials used. Because these two materials expand and harden when they react, spray foam will never lose its shape. Spray foam cures in one spot and will not sag or shift over time, even under extreme temperatures. Spray foam has a high R-value, which means it can withstand heat. If you choose spray foam installation, you may rest easy knowing that you won’t have to upgrade or replace it for several years.
Sound Proofing Benefits
Thanks to spraying foam insulation, you won’t be able to hear road traffic or sounds from adjacent rooms. Spray foam fills holes and cracks, preventing outside noise from entering. Once installed, the insulation collects acoustic waves and soundproofs your walls, making your house or office quieter. Spray foam is ideal for those who prefer solitude from the outside.
Improved R-Value and Thermal Performance
Compared to other forms of insulation of equivalent thickness, spray foam insulation delivers
exceptional thermal performance and the highest R-value (a measure of thermal resistance) per inch, resulting in larger potential energy savings. The greater a materials insulating capabilities, the higher its R-value. R-values for spray expandable foam range from 3.5 to 7 per inch of depth, and some spray polyurethanes can provide the same energy efficiency in half the space. To demonstrate the effectiveness, millions of homes across Scotland have used spray foam for insulation.
