Attic and Ceiling Spray Foam Insulation in Kansas City
Attics do not typically receive much foot traffic and can be easily forgotten about. However, when it comes to insulating your home, pole barn, or commercial building, ceiling and attic insulation is of utmost importance. At KC Spray Foam & Coatings, LLC, our expert insulation technicians understand how essential proper ceiling and attic insulation is in keeping your space safe, efficient, and comfortable. We are proud to provide our customers with quality ceiling and attic spray foam insulation services.
The Importance of Ceiling, Roof, and Attic Insulation
One of the most cost-effective ways to improve your building’s energy efficiency is to add sufficient ceiling, roof, and attic insulation. A poorly insulated or uninsulated ceiling, roof, or attic will cause you to lose a good majority of the heat from your home or building during the winter and will allow unwanted hot air to enter during the summer.
In addition, adding ceiling and attic insulation will prevent warm, moist air from escaping from the house, office, or pole barn and into the attic which can cause condensation on the roof underside, potentially leading to mold development and structural damage. Adding attic and roof insulation can also assist in preventing ice damming during the winter.
Why Spray Foam Insulation?
Spray foam insulation not only works well in walls, but it also performs exceptionally for both attic insulation and ceiling/roof insulation.
There have been a lot of opinions regarding the use of spray foam insulation for attic and roof insulation. You may hear negative things are said about this tactic, like it may rot out the roof deck, make the shingles curl, or that the attic needs to breathe. All of these factors can be easily explained using building science and are simply not true. Our spray foam insulation experts at KC Spray Foam & Coatings. LLC, who have been thoroughly trained in building science, can explain these core concepts and address any concerns when we visit your site.
Benefits of Ceiling, Attic, and Roof Insulation
In addition to improving your building’s energy efficiency and lowering your utility bills, ceiling, attic, and roof spray foam insulation also come with numerous other benefits including the following:
Increased Structural Integrity
An uninsulated attic or roof can potentially lead to mold growth, ice damming, and even extensive roof and structural damage. Adding ceiling, attic, and roof insulation can help prevent gradual damage to your home or building and increase the structural integrity by mitigating the effects of heat and moisture intrusion.
Improved Indoor Air Quality
A poorly insulated or uninsulated roof and attic can allow dust, pollen, dirt, mildew, and other outdoor pollutants to spread throughout your home or office, compromising your indoor air quality. By properly insulating your ceiling, attic, and roof, you can enjoy improved air quality and a cleaner indoor environment.
Reduced HVAC Wear and Tear
Without proper ceiling, roof, and attic insulation, your HVAC system will have to work even harder to maintain a comfortable temperature in your home or office. Adding spray foam insulation to these areas prevents heat loss in the winter and mitigates heat gain in the summer, resulting in less wear and tear on your HVAC unit.

Should I have spray foam insulation added to my attic or roof?
Great question! Where we install spray foam insulation typically depends on a few factors.
