If you think that foam is limited to the topping on your cup of cappuccino or the stuff that a long and leisurely bath is made of, then think again. Foam can also be responsible in keeping your home toasty warm. Spray foam insulation is one of the many ways you can keep your home safe from the winter chills. In the case of Ohio, where winter can drop to nearly forty degrees below zero, Ohioans are most likely to need it.

Spray foams were first used in the 1940s by the military for airplanes, as it can get really cold above 20,000 feet. Twenty years later, people saw that spray foam can be used to keep homes warm for the winter. Spray foams are known for their remarkable ability to keep heat in and out of the house. You have a sea of foam in your roof acting as a heat shield to keep pools of heat strictly where they belong.

The typical mixture for spray foam consists of two ingredients: polyurethane and isocyanate. As the polyurethane mixture is sprayed onto the area to be insulated, the isocyanate mixes into the polyurethane when the spray foam is applied. The isocyanate is an essential ingredient if spray foam is to settle as real foam.

The result is a sea of spray foam across the roof that looks like white cotton candy laid out to dry. Due to the hazards of the chemicals involved in the spray foam, application should only be done by certified roofing contractors. Exposure to isocyanate can trigger asthma for people not equipped with proper protective gear.
