Gonz Insulation – A Guide to Spray Foam Insulation

Gonz Insulation is an alternative to traditional building materials like fiberglass batt insulation. Its unique formulation is applied through a spray gun, and it expands to fill in all the nooks and crannies of your home’s walls and roof sheathing. The result is a more effective air and vapor barrier than other types of insulation, which can cut your energy costs and help protect your family’s health by blocking toxic chemicals in your home.

How Spray Foam Insulation Works

The most common type of spray foam is polyurethane. It is a two-component mixture of isocyanate and polyol resin. The two chemicals meet at the tip of a spray gun and react to create the insulation, which is then sprayed onto roof sheathing or concrete slabs, into open wall cavities, and other nooks and crannies. The result is a thick, strong material that is both flexible and durable, and it is typically non-toxic once it has cured. While it is curing, however, it releases a gas that can cause blurred vision and difficulty breathing. Therefore, it’s important to wear a mask and use protective clothing when applying the insulation.

Other alternative insulation products to spray foam include cellulose and recycled paper. Both offer benefits over the more popular foam options, including excellent R-values and resistance to varying climatic conditions. Cellulose, in particular, is ideal for Gonzales’ climatic conditions because it can absorb and release moisture without compromising its insulating properties. It’s also fire-resistant and eco-friendly, making it a great choice for homeowners who want to reduce their carbon footprint.
