People choose white reflective insulation over the traditional silver finish for variety of reason:

  1. Appearance: The white finish offers a clean, bright look that is often preferred choice for insulation buyers. It lightens interior spaces due to its brightness.
  2. Additional Reflective Properties: The difference from white reflective insulations from silver is that it reflects a broader spectrum of the sun’s rays, including visible light, which contributes to heat gain. This can result in a cooler interior space as compared to using the silver finish, which mainly reflects infrared radiation.
  3. It Reduces Glare: White doesn’t produce additional glare. However Silver reflective insulation can produce significant glare when exposed to sunlight.
  4. Has UV Resistance: White reflective insulation finishes are treated for enhanced UV resistance. This will prolong the life to the insulation since UV rays can degrade the insulation over time.
  5. Architects Prefer White: It simply compliments a wider range of finishes and styles.

Why you shouldn’t use spray foam insulation

  1. It is too expensive
  2. It doesn’t protect your steel building from radiant heat transfer.
  3. It is labor extensive, so a professional is required for installation 
  4. A great deal of spray foam can release toxic fumes when it burns
