“When we bought our home in Tulsa’s Lortondale neighborhood, we noticed our energy bills were pretty high and our air conditioner was working non-stop. We spoke with a contractor who said our home’s insulation might be inadequate. After researching several local insulation companies, we had a few questions about spray foam insulation. Is it the best insulation for a home like ours? What are the pros and cons?”

Thanks for the question, Jill and Todd!
Proper insulation is an important part of every home. But with so many insulation materials to choose from, how do you know what’s right for your home?
The truth is, it really depends on the home. We work with many types of insulation in Tulsa homes — spray foam, fiberglass, and radiant barrier, to name a few. Our contractors will assess your home to select the right insulation — in most cases, we use multiple insulation products.
There are many advantages to spray foam, so let’s spend a minute talking about this versatile, effective product.
Benefits of Spray Foam Insulation
Spray foam insulation is applied wet and expands into thick foam that fits snugly in wall cavities, crevices, and gaps—therefore, it can be installed in hard-to-reach areas and around piping and wiring.
Spray foam insulation is also extremely energy-efficient. It fits perfectly in wall cavities, small crevices, tiny gaps, etc. and can act as an air sealing solution. Spray foam insulation can also help:
- Make your home more comfortable year round
- Reduce noises not only from outside your home, but also between different rooms and levels
- Improve the performance of your HVAC equipment
- Protect against air and moisture infiltration (and help eliminate mold growth)
- Contribute to a healthier environment
Is Spray Foam Insulation Expensive?
Spray foam is an affordable product — and the financial benefits of lower energy bills (in many cases) are hard to ignore.
