Timber Frame Insulation with Spray Foam

How effective is spray foam attic and wall insulation


Insulating your timber frame home with spray foam insulation is quick, energy efficient, provides great thermal and sound insulation and it is of course the most airtight material on the market.

All the timber in your home needs to ‘breathe’. Building regulations state that in your attic a 50mm air gap is required between insulation material and the roofing felt unless the roof is counter battened where the foam can be sprayed directly on the roofing felt.

CPI Foam’s E500 open cell spray foam and breathable vent card system have been tested in Irish climatic conditions and have received the coveted NSAI agreement certificate. All our staff have been trained and certified to use all CPI products.

Most roofing systems in Ireland are not counter battened so it s very important to maintain a 50mm air gap between the foam and roofing felt. We are able to achieve a continuous 50mm air gap by employing CPI Foam’s unique breathable vent card system.

The card attached to the rafters at the required 50mm from the felt. The Open Cell Spray Foam Insulation is then applied to exposed rafters and the card. As the card is rigid it doesn t warp or degrade like cardboard yet allowing water vapour to escape.
