I’m very glad I used this product, it works as advertised, the shipping is fast and the customer support is great. (Read on for heat map of temperature change and project photos)
The HVAC person we use has looked at completed job and stated that any insulation issues with our HVAC duct work have been eliminated forever. The product not only is a permanent solution for insulating HVAC duct, the sealing abilties are hard to beat.
The barn apartment...This stuff is fantastic in a metal building! Seals it up tight and minimizes the noise from rain and heat expansion down to nothing. There is a 20 degree temp from in here and the rest of the 2000 sq ft barn. It really works! Here is a shot from the outside of the barn apartment. Another note: besides insulation, noise, and vapor barrier, this stuff also adds a ton of structural integrity!
Our recent Foam it Green installation!!! Hubby did GREAT! Awesome product, easy to use & get the feel of. We will recommend it to everyone!!
I was searching for a product that would "seal" in my front porch so that I would not have to re-do the project again later. That's when I came across your website, by a search I did online. Your website is very informative and is what made me decide to even try your product!
When I received your product, I was a little overwhelmed but once I watched your videos again, it made me realize that anybody can do this!! The actual process of spraying the product is simple and easy; and it is super fast, too. I have seen a major difference in the temperature of the room I insulated and I am thrilled, to say the least! I am glad I came across this product and I have already referred friends and family to you. It is absolutely THE easiest, best, and most affordable way to insulate your home on your own without having to pay labor costs to somebody else. Just give it a try and you will NOT be disappointed!
Hope you don't mind a photo attachment--does a better job of explaining what I was doing than text. I recently moved in with my girlfriend, and I needed to eke out a place to store my tools in her damp rubble stone foundation basement. The water issues were just dampness and mustiness (as opposed to bulk rain water coming through the walls), so I figured it would be sufficient to apply a layer of closed cell spray foam to the walls for moisture and condensation control.
The floor, FYI, is 2" extruded polystyrene with seams taped, and a layer of either cement board (Wonderboard) or fiber cement board (Hardie Tile Backer) as a walking surface. I prefer those materials to plywood, because (a) it "flops" down instead of curling up, and (b) if it gets wet, who cares? FYI, I like fiber cement board a lot more, but it is more difficult to cut around obstructions.
I would have loved to spray the wall all the way up, but I ran out of foam before I get that far up the wall--the below grade stuff was the top priority.
Yes, I know that I should have painted the wall with intumescent paint, but it was a higher priority to me to get moved out of my old apartment at the end of my lease.
This has been up and running August--so far so good! Also, I helped a friend do the same thing in their basement in New Hampshire (a finished basement room) almost a year ago, and they're all good.
foam it green allowed me to turn a shipping container into a cabin in 3 days. the insulation install was so fast it took less time to install than it did to move the camping gear out of the way.

Emailed in a snit to ask where my other tips were. Linda called twice immediately and emailed to explain that they may have fallen down next to one of the tanks. OK, so I'm an idiot.
Use this product before you do ANY framing in the basement. I didn't do that so it made my job much more difficult. I found after taking the insulation out of our rim joists in the basement that there were several places where you could actually see light. I used the 602 kit and filled 215 feet of rim joists. Now there is no light and no breeze. NICE!!!
I found that putting the tanks on a furniture dolly helps a bunch and having a friend hold a light and help move stuff is nice also. Also, as soon as your spray starts looking different, change your tip. This product is awesome and I'd like to get some more to insulate my heat ducts, sound proof the basement bath walls and the master bedroom from the basement.
I had 2 walls in my living room that were not insulated. There was a 3-5 degree difference between the living room and the other rooms on the main floor. I did not want to tear out the plaster walls to insulate. Then I used your spray foam. Now the living room is the same temperature as the other rooms. The instruction videos and the printable instructions had some great hints. These hints made the installation easy and kept my plaster walls from cracking. Now my living room is as comfortable as the rest of the house.

There is nothing any easier than spraying this Foam insulation. It is picked up within 15 seconds. Applies so much faster that fiberglass insulation. The sound deadening properties are wonderful, as the cleanup compared to trimming Fiberglass insulation. It is air tight leaving lo places for insects to make a home. I know I will purchased more to complete the attic, before this fall.
Consistency of application was the hardest thing. I wasn't happy with the consistency but that was my fault, not the foam. Practice makes perfect. This was a one in a hundred job, which is done now. We plan to use your product to seal the slab were it meets our wood siding as a bug deterrent but that will be next year. I am waiting to see how my electric bill will be affected by the AC in the Beach House. I'll let you know when I get one or two bills under the belt.
This was so easy! I sprayed the sill plate in the basement and a crawl space. Took me about an hour. I have a yard cart that I brought in and put the box with the tanks in that and that helped a lot being able to just pull it around the perimeter of the basement as I worked.
Use one inch of Foam it Green, then fiberglass batts. Love using this product!
Insulated a metal building - went on easy and results were great!

Not too bad for first timers, and it will keep us warm this winter!
I used Spray Foam Direct - Home of Foam it Green on the underside of a mobile home to add insulation and a vapor barrier. Well satisfied with the results and a third of the cost of having a contractor doing the job.
It was so simple and so fast no other solution would have allowed my to turn a container into a cabin in 3 days. the days temperature got into the mid 90s the first day it was quite warm in the container. The second day after installing the insulation the container stayed cool and felt like it was in the 70s the whole day. awesome product!!!!
I finished my insulation project, which included foaming the rim joist around the perimeter of my house. It has made a huge difference in the climate of the basement. I would have to empty a dehumidifier at least once per day, previously. Now, I go up to three days without it filling up. Also, I have previously had problems with mice/insects. I didn't know this previously, but my exterminator said I have now taken care of 80-90 percent of the problem by foaming the rim joists. I also have a work colleague who is ordering some foam it green due to my recommendation! I don't normally endorse products, but I think your product is awesome.

The process is as simple as you advertise it to be. The directions and the videos have made this project easier than I could have imagined. Thank you so much!!!
I made the decision to order mainly because everywhere I looked on the web there you were, but I didn't find anything negative. I also found Ron and Lauren very friendly and patient (professional). The fact that you have an anti microbial was a big plus. I received the package yesterday used it today and thanks to your instructions, every thing worked out perfect. You run a real American company that I know I will use again.

I have to say, This is one of the easiest projects I have tackled in a while. I followed the instructions,watched videos and read all the helpful tips. I was nervous as I started but soon was spraying pretty well. I started on the ceiling first as suggested by the instructions. The only bummer was I could not see out of my goggles after a little while,They where trashed.I shut down according to the instructions.About 5 days later after a trip to get new goggles( I tried without them, Trashed my glasses)The kit worked as advertised. This time I was applying like a pro.This product sealed up my space like a zip lock bag. I will never use another insulation material again. Cost versus time,performance,ease of use. Cost is not a factor.Much cheaper in the long run. I want to thank this group for actually being there. This is a great product,Works as advertised and is a great value.
The best benefits I see is it sealed and insulated in one easy step. Also like the idea of being able to stop for an extended period of time and restarting without any loss of product. This equals money saved/money earned.
We have pretty much finished using the green foam and it seems to be a great product. We were hit by a devastating flood in May 2013 and have been working on gutting and rebuilding our home since that time. Basically, we gutted the entire house up to 4 feet in most instances. Then we rebuilt the walls with 3.5 inch foam board and then sprayed the green foam on top of that to seal the walls. We then used hardy backer board instead of sheet rock; thus hopefully water proofing the walls. We are now in the process of mudding and taping the walls for painting and paneling. It is quite a lengthy project for just the two of us, progress is slow but I think we will be happy with the end result.
Material is great the fan spray a little difficult to control at first. one suggestion is to use a good quality chemical mask and don't remove mask until you exit outside and wait about 15 minuets before entering area. Really solidified wall and the sound proofing effect is great not to mention the great r value and by the way no itching from fiberglass when your done.will always use this over fiberglass.
