Tiny Houses and Polyurethane

Spray polyurethane foam can have BIG benefits for even the smallest of houses.

Tiny Houses (1)

Spray polyurethane foam insulation can be used to help fill gaps and stop air leaks in many areas of a home or building – whether they are big or small. In fact, the construction and use of tiny houses is sweeping the country. Plastics Makes It Possible takes you step-by-step through the overall construction and design of the exterior and interior for one of these mobile and tiny houses.

Along with vinyl plastic sliding and trim, solar power plastic roof shingles, and plastic interior décor, spray polyurethane foam insulation helps keep this house cool and comfortable during the summer and warm and cozy during the winter. As much as 40% of a building’s energy is lost due to air infiltration. Gaps, holes and air leaks—which can all be prevented*—can make energy bills unnecessarily high and let valuable resources go to waste.


So remember, even in the tiniest or largest of homes, versatile polyurethane is there to help you keep your house more comfortable and energy efficient.
