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.

All Seasons Insulation – Spray foam roofing and insulation contractor serving Orange County, Los Angeles County and the Inland Empire.
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Spray Foam offers higher thermal resistance (R-value) over outdated traditional methods such as fiberglass or cellulose and can be sprayed into areas that are difficult for other forms of insulation.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.

Why Get Spray Foam Insulation By All Seasons Insulation?
If you need proof that insulation is worth the money: consider something everyone has on their homes. Imagine you cannot close the windows on your house. It’s like living outdoors, whether it is 100 degrees and humid or 30 below and absolutely frigid. You would need to use the heating and air conditioning an exceptional amount just to compete with the influx of temperature extremes. That’s what many people are doing when they allow air leaks to take over the attic, foundation, crawlspace, or barns.
That is just about what the difference is like when you have great insulation or none at all. If your insulation is old, worn away, wet and moldy, or anything but working efficiently, be smart, and invest wisely in spray foam insulation. Why? Well, that’s to be covered here. In addition, turn to spray foam insulation by All Seasons Insulation to provide top-quality insulation services at a competitive price.
Cost Advantages To Having Spray Foam
It turns out that even with the windows closed, heating and cooling a home accounts for between half to 70 percent of energy costs month after month. If you have a building, commercial rates often run double, while taxing your business’s bottom line even more.
Fortunately, there are ways to save money on those costs by taking preventative measures. One of the ways to save money while staying comfortable indoors is to invest in spray foam insulation.
Why Spray Foam?
As it turns out, the windows, roofing, the foundation, and siding all play a key role in forming a home’s building envelope. It is intended to keep mother nature outdoors. That includes all weather, including rain, humidity, snow, and ice. Roofing is not perfect, and sometimes animals burrow into the attic or the basement and crawl spaces, making a natural space for mother nature to enter, along with moisture.
Spray foam has some exceptional properties that keep what’s known as the temperature differential (the difference between temperatures inside the home and outdoors) even. That’s a tall order, but spray foam is able to live up to that demand day in and day out. It truly is an excellent material because it saves a lot of money on heating and cooling costs, as that temperature differential does not get passed on as a stressor to the heating and cooling system.
In other words, having excellent insulation in place will prevent the many factors that increase our costly reliance on heating and air systems. It takes extra stress off the systems, allowing them to last longer while performing much more efficiently. It all comes down to saving money while providing even and consistent temperature within the home.
Properties Of Spray Foam
If you are still stuck on the concept of “how can foam fill gaps”, remember it is not installed in solid pieces when it is put into the home. It is sprayed into place, where it expands, and fills in all those little holes, cracks, and broken down old seals. In other words, it not only insulates, but it also provides the added benefit of having the properties of a sealant.
Except, if you try to seal all the cracks and holes in your home, you would come up short. You might caulk and yet still feel a draft, because you cannot see or easily access all of the holes and cracks in your home.
The added benefit of spray foam insulation by All Seasons is that the team and the SPF get up into the hard-to-reach spaces. The SPF expands to give the added peace of mind of a sealant. Your heating and air system would thank you if they could talk.
If your air conditioning or HVAC system sounds like it is struggling to keep up season after season, then it is time to try a different approach. Rather than overtaxing the AC, get spray foam.
Spray foam is ideal because it provides an added layer of superior protection against moisture. It acts as a backup moisture barrier. Everyone in the Southeast can appreciate the benefits of this.
