What is Spray Foam?
Spray polyurethane foam (SPF) is a spray-applied plastic that can form a continuous insulation and air sealing barrier on walls, roofs, around corners, and on all contoured surfaces. It is made by mixing and reacting unique liquid components at the job site to create foam. The liquids react very quickly when mixed, expanding on contact to create foam that insulates, seals gaps, and can form moisture and vapor barriers. SPF insulation is known to resist heat transfer extremely well, and it offers a highly effective solution in reducing unwanted air infiltration through cracks, seams, and joints.

Adds structural strength
Seals cracks and voids
Keeps out unwanted pests
Here at All Seasons Insulation we specialize in superior quality Polyurethane, Spray-in-Place Foam (Spray Foam) insulation and roofing. Spray Foam is the high-tech alternative to traditional roofing and insulation materials.
Spray Foam offers higher thermal resistance (R-value) over outdated traditional methods such as fiberglass or cellulose and can be sprayed into areas that are difficult for other forms of insulation. With Spray Foam the underside of roof sheathing in attics and under your house in subfloor crawlspaces are completely insulated. Polyurethane Spray Foam insulation acts as an air barrier sealing off the hundreds of cracks and crevices that lets your conditioned air out and the outside air in. Traditional insulating materials can’t do that. Because Spray Foam seals the building envelope, its R-value holds true. Fiberglass and cellulose rarely attain the R-value claimed because of air leakage in real-life applications.
Using Spray Foam can lead to greater energy savings by insulating your home more effectively. Used correctly in a new build, remodel or retrofit, an Spray Foam insulated home can use smaller Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) units, saving even more money initially and more over time in energy savings. Polyurethane Spray Foam Insulation can actually pay for itself over time with these savings. It is a one-time application that doesn’t sag or settle like out-dated fiberglass or cellulose and should last throughout the life of your home. No need to remove or replace saving landfill space.Truely a green insulation product!
High-tech Polyurethane Spray Foam Insulation is not new. It has been around for over 40 years. Originally used to insulate commercial refrigeration units. Why? Because it out performs everything else with less thickness.
Spray Foam is also great as a roofing system for flat and low-slope roofs. It is monolithic (one single piece with no laps or seams). A Spray Foam roof is also extremely light weight and can often be applied over existing roofs without costly tear offs or displacement of roofing felts containg asbestos (ACM). Spray Foam roofs are also “sustainable” and can be classified as “green”. This is because with proper care and periodical recoating, they can last more than 50 years! Most other roof systems last between 8-10 years. Each time costing as much as or more than before. With Spray Foam the initial cost may be more, but recoats are a fraction of what a new traditional roof would be.
The main advantage of a Spray Foam roof system is that not only is it a roof, but it is a great insulator, something traditional roof systems are not. As with Spray Foam in walls, it can start paying for itself immediately in energy and HVAC savings. By maintaining the roof, it will keep on paying for itself for years to come.
Part of a Spray Foam roof system is the elastomeric topcoating. With the proper ENERGY STAR® coating we can meet your Title 24 Cool Roof requirements on commercial & residential roofs. A Cool Roof reduces the amount of heat absorbed allowing further savings in HVAC and energy costs.
