With hurricane season in full swing, does your home insulation protect against extreme weather?† Can your insulation withstand high winds and flooding?
Closed-cell spray foam insulation is more than just a way to keep temperature regulated. It is rated by FEMA as a flood-resistant material. Insulation must withstand water for 72 hours in order for it to be rated as flood-resistant. While traditional insulation can soak up moisture (resulting in mold), spray foam insulation is moisture-resistant. This keeps the water out and also reduces the amount of humidity entering the home. First Defense Insulation can help protect your home against extreme weather.
Spray-foam insulation is great for more than the ability to withstand water. When sprayed, this foam insulation expands to fill any cracks and crevices, thus creating an airtight seal against outside elements.† Upon curation, spray-foam insulation takes on a dense, rigid form. This can add up to 300% more strength to the insulated wall. Spray foam insulation will help your home remain intact against heavy winds and rains that come with hurricanes and extreme weather.
