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.
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.
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.
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.
I am very pleased with your product. It was simple to use and did everything I expected. I have another project in the spring when I'll use your product again.
Your product is great, I’ve already noticed a difference.. I plan on buying more in the late summer early fall to finish my attic. Not sure if you can answer this question but I have 3 attic fans.. I’m thinking that I should disconnect them and seal the vent area with spray foam since cold air is getting in and or warm air is escaping through the vents. I read different sites and each one say different things.
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.
Well, I was in the crawl space. What a horrible place to be with two 60 pound canisters. At any rate the product performed very nicely. I probably used more than I intended, but that is OK. Longer hoses would have been a big plus. A curved nozzle would have very nice for parts of this application as there were a few gaps inside a bay cavity and getting foam to fall down into it was problematic. Fan tips were unnecessary for me. Hopefully I still have enough product to use in some of those hard to insulate spots around the house.
Thanks, this was the right product for the job. I’ very pleased.
This was my first spray foam experience and I will never have to regret the decision I have made. I am currently saving money monthly, I do not have a cold floor and instead warm feet, I have no drafts at all, and also my HVAC ducts hold the hot or cold air to make my new living space very comfortable. Thank you Foam it Green for a making an easy and cost effective DIY product that really works!!!
From one 602 kit, I now can now comfortably stand in barefeet in our new bedroom addition and look out at the window as snow is falling. It is a great feeling my project was a success.
I am a 53 year old lady of small stature. My first career was baker/pastry chef...second career is a registered dental hygienist with license to perform anesthesia. I would enjoy doing applications of these foam products for a third career. I have no special skills at all, just made the right decision when I purchased this product. Set up was easy, every step followed precisely and application went wonderful. It was so much fun to spray.

Worked great. Had some of the blue left over when the yellow ran out, but the color was right in the mix and it set up well. Thanks.
(Editors note: It is common to end up with more of one component than the other at the end of the job. This broad tolerance is actually designed in so that the kit will work under a variety of conditions, while still balancing the pressure and viscosity of each chemical.)
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.
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.

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.

I tried this 602 Kit for the first time on my basement floor. It was very simple to use spent maybe 3 hours total and was able to do 600 ft. sq. My utility bills have seen a change this summer with the air condition running and cannot wait until the winter to see results. I recommend this to everyone I know.

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)
Spa insulation project done!
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!!!!
Great service and easy to use product! Good hands on video, and it applied just like described. We are seeing good cooling so far on the warm days. We expect to see great heat retention in the winter.
Easy to follow directions, great support, really liked the 17 extras, and great hose/nozzles which made foaming it green look like a professional did it. My garage feels cooler even in our 90+ degree heat after I foamed it green. For insulating my garage it actually looks aesthetically pleasing that I think it is not necessary to cover it up with drywall.
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.
Very quick to install. Simple set up. The only thing better would be if it applied itself. Delivery was quick, too. Great experience!
Made insulating areas that were poorly done by the builder very easy to remedy and greatly improve the efficiency of the ac in the house. Our ac would run continuously and still be above 80 degrees on hot days. Now we set at 75 and even hot days the ac is maintaining that number and Able to cycle on and off. Thanks so much for the easy improvement!!
Thanks again for the wonderful product, the support, the website movies and information, and for giving DIY home owners the affordable ability to perform the work with Foam it Green products.
It turned out very clean and well sealed and it looks super fresh. The smell was gone in just a couple of hours. The suite, gloves and eye protection worked great along with my purchased chemical mask from Lowes. There was ample tips and I used almost all of them. Clean up isn't to difficult as it scrapes clean and fast, just a little messy until you sweep it up. Would I spend that much again? Yes I would because it made the whole house feel more solid with less noise inside plus I don't think tiny ants or bugs will enjoy it as much as fiberglass that is easy to nest under. So thank you Foam it Green for a clean alternative.
