Sprayed Insulation

Many insulation materials that are installed as loose-fill can also be spray-installed when mixed with moisture or a binding agent (or both). Some are sprayed into open cavities and then covered, as with damp-spray cellulose or fiberglass with a binder, while others are sprayed onto exposed surfaces and left exposed. With cavity-fill installations, a special “screeding” tool is used to trim off excess insulation flush with the inner face of the framing members. Spray-insulation applications are typically very effective at reducing air leakage in addition to reducing conductive heat loss or gain. These materials also do a good job around wires and pipes that run through framing cavities—thus solving a common installation problem with batt insulation.
