How Long Does Spray Foam Insulation Last?


If you’re considering spray foam insulation for your home, one of the questions that you might be thinking about is how long this spray foam insulation lasts?

Is this a one-time purchase, or will the foam wear down and need to be replaced in the future? As with fiberglass or cellulose, the traditional insulation will break down with time. So how long will foam insulation endure?

We’ve been installing insulation in homes throughout all of the Lower Peninsula for the past 20 years due to the fact that the cellulose and fiberglass in the home aren’t doing their job any longer.

Here’s what you need to know about the longevity of spray foam insulation.

How Do I Know How Long Insulation Lasts?

The life expectancy of traditional insulation should be at least 15 years dependent on the brand.

These insulation materials are known to sag, compress, or lose their insulating abilities as the years go on. This process is sped up if the insulation gets wet.

This isn’t the situation with foam insulation.

The spray foam as well as spray foam insulation is guaranteed to never degrade or change shape over time. Foam insulation is an investment for one time since the material is designed to last for the entire life of the house.

Spray Foam Insulation for your home

If you purchase foam insulation in order to air close the building envelope of your home it won’t be necessary to replace it unless something catastrophic happens.

The life span that foam insulation along with its air seal it provides makes it an ideal choice to make homes more comfortable and efficient in energy use.
