Do you need to install insulation in the new home you’re building? Need to re-insulate your home? Whatever your needs, Tidewater Insulators can help! If you’re looking for spray foam insulation contractors in the Portsmouth, Virginia area, we are the company to call.
Spray foam insulation is applied in liquid form, resembling wet paint, and is sprayed into the wall cavity (like its name suggests). It dries within seconds and expands into a thick foam that snugly fills the designated space and creates a tight seal. You can install spray foam insulation anywhere in your home—attic, basement, walls, around piping and ductwork, etc.
Why Use Spray Foam Insulation in Your Portsmouth Home?
Due to the tight seal it creates, spray foam insulation is ideal for the small crevices, gaps, and cracks located behind your walls (you’d be surprised at how many there are!). Spray foam can actually help reduce air leakage in your home. It also:
- Can help save you money every month
- Makes your home more comfortable year round
- Reduces outside noises (and noises between different rooms and levels inside)
- Helps improve the overall efficiency of your AC
- Decreases the amount of pollen, dust, and other small debris in your home
- Can prevent mold growth (it doesn’t absorb water)
- Helps boost your home’s resale value
- Does not shrink or settle after it’s installed
Spray foam insulation is a good choice if you want to make your home in Portsmouth more energy-efficient and comfortable.

Spray Foam & Air Leakage
Air leaks can reduce the effectiveness of your insulation, and as we mentioned, spray foam insulation can help eliminate air leaks. Filling hard-to-reach places, voids, and cracks, it will keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer. You can even use spray foam insulation between floor joists, as well as around wiring, piping, and ductwork.
