Investing in closed-cell foam insulation is an important choice in building a sustainable home. Closed-cell
spray foam insulation is one of the most advanced insulating materials available to the construction
industry. The insulation is spray-applied and, when properly installed, forms an air seal that prevents leaks,
minimizes noise, and improves building performance. Closed-cell spray foam is the perfect thermal and
moisture management system for your new home.

Improved Energy Efficiency Closed-cell spray foam insulation provides exceptional aged R-value of 6.9
per inch, which results in
heating and cooling cost savings of up to 50%. Drafts are virtually eliminated
so a more uniform indoor temperature is maintained. Bayseal™ doesn't settle or sag over time so you’ll
enjoy these savings for the life of your home. Reduce Energy Consumption Through Air Control Air moves
in and out of a home through every hole, crack and seam. Approximately one third of air infiltrates through
ceiling, walls and floor openings. The Department of Energy reports that heating and cooling (space
conditioning) account for about 56% of the energy used in the typical American home. Bayseal™ CC
closed-cell insulation helps to maintain a comfortable indoor climate while reducing energy consumption.
The application eliminates unwanted air and heat exchange and decreases the amount of moist air that
leaks through the house, reducing the adverse effects of mold and mildew growth on or inside walls and
ceilings.

Why be concerned about moisture? Mold is an increasing concern with its evident health risks in the
Gulf Coast Region and other areas with high levels of rain, flooding, and/or humidity. Most home buyers
assume that mold does not grow on conventional insulation material; this is a fairly true statement. However,
it grows on the organic debris that becomes trapped in these products. There are four critical requirements
for mold growth – available mold spores, available mold food, appropriate temperatures and “considerable”
moisture. Of the four basic requirements for mold growth, moisture availability is by far the easiest mold
growth requirement to control. Moisture Management Bayseal™ insulation is an important component in a
moisture management system. Air infiltration and ex filtration, within a structure, contributes to
approximately 99% of moisture migration. Reducing air movement deters moisture accumulation so that
mold growth is less likely to occur. Closed-cell spray foam insulation helps keep the indoor humidity at a
level for which the growth of mildew and allergens can be minimized. Reducing moisture and controlling
humidity can also add years to the life expectancy of a home.
