Moisture Control and More with Spray Foam Insulation

In the design of building enclosures an emerging alternative is the use of spray foam insulation as exterior continuous insulation featuring the ability to resist heat, water, vapor and air movement in an uninterrupted, continuous performance installation. A significant outcome is the control of moisture mechanisms in buildings.

How spray foam insulation’s water resistive, air barrier and insulation characteristics help to control moisture is examined in detail. That it is a proven option that offers such performance in addition to allowing for design freedom and flexible installation is also discussed.

Continuous Insulation - Spray Polyurethane Foam vs. Rigid Foam Board

The design of exterior wall assemblies has become increasingly focused on performance for greater energy efficiency and resistance to air and water penetration. The 2015 International Energy Conservation Code and ASHRAE 90.1 now requires insulation that is continuous in wall assemblies, (i.e. not interrupted by studs, framing, etc.) in all eight climate zones within the United States. This push for continuous insulation in exterior wall assemblies is also reflected in green building standards and the desires of building owners to reduce energy costs.

In this presentation, we will look at the performance, installation and cost advantages of medium density spray foam insulation compared to the commonly used rigid foam board in continuous insulation applications.

The Performance Benefits of using Medium Density Spray Foam in Continuous Insulation Applications

The purpose of this white paper is to highlight several important performance and application facts that demonstrate why medium density spray foam is the superior choice in exterior continuous insulation applications. Findings within this white paper are based on field experience obtained on construction sites, and from testing and evaluations conducted for ICC-ES reports and Air Barrier Association of America (ABAA) programs according to appropriate industry and building code performance criteria.

Design/Build strategies to reduce the threat of moisture

In the design process few decisions have as many long-term implications for the performance and durability of a building as the choice of insulation. For the designer, builder and owner, insulation can and should play a multifaceted role that extends far beyond those noticeable or expected benefits, such as energy savings, comfort and enhanced indoor air quality. Insulation, in combination with good detailing and quality control, can play a preventive role by minimizing the chances that things could go wrong.
