Spray foam insulation on the exterior of buildings. This type of insulation absorbs and reduces the heat inside a building, thereby lowering the temperature. This type of insulation has emerged as the most cost-effective and common insulation material used on the exterior of new buildings in the United States, according to the Building Owners and Managers Association. Not only does it absorb the heat during the day, but also during nighttime hours. Although this type of insulation makes it a less appealing option for attics, there are a few ways that it can be used to add insulation in the attic. Some of these ideas will also make it an affordable option for attics.

 

Surface treatments

 

Many different exterior surfaces can be treated with this type of foam, including decks, porches, doors and windows. Some products that are available for exterior surfaces are:

 

Shiplap treated wood is a popular choice for exterior surfaces such as deck boards. It has a fiberglass sheathing. This results in a moisture-resistant, low-cost, non-corrosive, long-lasting surface. Shiplap has become a favorite, thanks to its durability and ease of installation. These boards can also be used for the construction of decks, porches, gables, patios and stone walls. For more information on this material, see "The Pros and Cons of Shiplap."

 

Broadleaf shingles can be used to make a solid, low-maintenance, attractive, rust-proof and durable surface on a deck, porch, gable, balcony, railing or any other type of roof.

 

It is also possible to treat a variety of wood boards with spray foam, including lumber, panel and plywood.

 

Other options
