How Spray Foam Insulation Helps with Springtime Moisture

The temperatures are starting to rise here in the Burlington area, and spring will be here before we know it. However as everything gets warmer, moisture becomes a common problem for homes throughout Southeastern Wisconsin. Moisture often leads to a variety of serious issues in a home, and even structural damage, which is why it’s important to keep your home protected. 

Diversified Insulation is a high-performance spray foam insulation contractor serving Burlington, WI and surrounding areas. We offer reliable solutions that can help prevent moisture from getting into your home, improve your comfort, and more.

Why Moisture is Bad for Your Home

When moisture finds its way inside, it can wreak havoc on your home, comfort, and indoor health. 

    • Structural damage - Prolonged exposure to moisture can lead to wood rot, early decay, and deterioration of your home’s building materials.
  • Indoor air quality issues - High moisture levels create a perfect environment for mildew, mold, and other common pollutants to grow and thrive in your home. 
  • An Uncomfortable Home - Increased moisture will make your home more humid and muggy, which can affect your HVAC’s performance and how comfortable you feel. 
  • High energy bills - Your home’s heating and cooling systems will have to work harder to keep your home at a consistent temperature, increasing your energy consumption. 

The Solution: Spray Foam Insulation

At Diversified Insulation, we use closed-cell spray foam insulation to provide an effective way to protect Wisconsin homes from moisture intrusion. As one of the highest performing types of insulation on the market today, spray foam insulation works to both insulate and air seal an area, creating a rigid barrier that separates your living spaces from the outside elements. 

Closed-cell spray foam insulation is made up of tiny, tightly packed air bubbles that help make it resistant to moisture, as well as heat and air flow. Unlike other types of insulation, spray foam offers superior protection, a high R-value, and extra strength to your home’s structure. 

Where to Install Spray Foam Insulation

Because spray foam can expand to fill small gaps and cracks found throughout your home, it can be installed almost anywhere. However, it is most valuable to install spray foam insulation in a crawl space or other areas that can be prone to moisture. Installing spray foam insulation is complicated and many things can go wrong throughout the process without prior experience and knowledge, which is why professional installation is recommended.

At Diversified Insulation, our technicians are highly-trained in the best practices for spray foam insulation installation. We utilize our building science expertise to provide comprehensive spray foam solutions for:
