Spray Foam Saves the Day in 70+ Year-Old Maryland Homes

When it comes to older homes, it’s very easy to say, “Out with the old and in with the new!” However, in one Maryland community, it seems as if they’re saying “Update the old and replace with new, more energy efficient and comfortable upgrades.”

Before rolling out a decade-long community-wide upgrade in energy improvements, home association, Greenbelt Homes, Inc., conducted a pilot to learn which building materials and products would potentially provide the best energy efficient outcome.

The crawl spaces below the 70+ year-old homes, contained batt insulation. It was replaced with spray polyurethane foam (SPF) and thanks to the amazing and incredible properties of polyurethane, homeowners that participated in the pilot say they noticed less draftiness after the SPF was installed. To learn more about the other energy saving results the pilot program uncovered, read the Greenbelt Homes Program Report.
