The Foam it 602 kit was excellent in every way. The ordering and pick up process was simple and fast, the instructions were clear, the application process was very simple and the results are impressive. I can't wait to tell my acquaintances about my experiences.
First of all, the kit allowed me to use a unique solution to insulate my pole barn. I used the kit as one step in the process of insulating the exterior walls of my new pole barn. I installed 1.5" dense cell foam insulation on the walls between the perlins, then sprayed the Foam it product over all joints and cracks. I covered about 1,140 square feet and as a bonus I also had enough Foam it left to add 1" of product over the top of the other product in my shop area. I believe this section of wall will net about 14.5 R value, which is a great start. My next step is to purchase the open cell Foam it product and apply an additional 2 to 3" of insulation.
Secondly, the cost was very competitive. I received 2 estimates from professional insulation firms to insulate my pole barn walls and the least expensive was just over $5,000 for the exterior walls. The rigid foam cost about $530, Foam it cost about $800 and the open cell product will cost about $1,200, for a total of $2,500, which is less than 1/2 of the cost for professional installation.
I used Foam It Green to insulate an In Law unit that had issues with temperature, moisture and sound. Initially, putting the kit together was a breeze. Everything was well organized and the kit came with everything I needed. I have to admit I had been anxiously awaiting this spray foam experience because I likened it to filling my walls with whipped cream.
I had a few hiccups early on with one of the canisters leaking where I attached the hose. I contacted customer service and they immediately began troubleshooting the problem with me. They were fantastic to work with and I truly felt like they were trying to ensure I had the best possible spray foam experience. After a little while the leaking stopped and I was able to get to spray foaming. Happily, it was as much fun as I thought it was going to be.
The foam went on perfectly and stuck to the walls without a lot of dripping. When everything dried I truly felt like the space was more protected from, specifically, moisture and critters than it had ever been! I would absolutely recommend this product to friends. Between the great results and the helpful and friendly customer service I couldn’t have asked for a better experience.
1) Easy and fun application 2) Drys very solid and clearly protects from moisture, critters and temperature. 3) Customer service was fantastic
At first, i was hesitant about spraying properly, but the videos made me much more hopeful and eager to spray. I was unsure whether the temperature and moisture would affect the spray, but the videos showed me shortcuts, preparation and setup that was so quick and easy that my first day was a breeze. I was on my back spray a roof storage area. Cleanup was simple and my wife was impressed. My next challenge was the crawlspace under my house, and that was even easier with the 30' hose. Your videos explained so much, that I had no problem with any part of the projects.
Benefits: Since spraying both locations (crawl and roof), the temperature in the house has risen 10 degrees during the night, but remained the same outside (45 degrees). The ease of spraying, cleanup, and benefits completely fooled me but saved me a weeks labor and costs of all the material I would need.
The foam kit was delivered in the time they said, the instructions were clear and easy to follow. Results were exactly as I imagined having it never used before. I used my kit to insulate ductwork that was not otherwise accessible for insulation!
Looking like the man on the moon with all the gear the mask and the respirator. The odor was not bad adn gone pretty fast after I was done spraying. Results were good. It was very easy to use, wish the kit could be cheaper but when I see how much the shipping is because it is two pressurized vessels than I must say that I would be willing to pay it again.
I had a small window of opportunity to improve the insulation in my uninsulated house when it is reroofed from shake to composition this week. I found Foam it green through a Google search. Their web site was extremely use full in explaining the products available and how to use them. Ordering was easy, shipping was quick.
Online videos covered every part of set up and application of the products. After looking up other companies I went back to FIG because of the quality of the website. After ordering I got a couple of follow up emails and then they said they were there to help if I need them, but then they did not pester me. They have my 5 star rating for their website and the way they do business and their excellent customer service
At first upon seeing the warning and safety information, I was scared out of my mind. Understand I have been in the construction industry near 15 years, and I guess I never read any of the stuff I used. Since this foam was new to me I read it all. Lots of warnings there.
That said, upon reading the directions and seeing all the included gear, my fears rapidly subsided. Every inch of my body was covered in safety gear. I was told exactly what type of respirator to get. And the tanks themselves? strapped together with a metal grip, hoses pre-fit, and ready to go after a bit of shaking.
After about 5 minutes I was so at ease using everything that I didn't really register that I was wearing a Tyvek suit in 95 degree weather. I used the techniques I read to alter my distances and foam thickness, and was done in no time. The few times I had to stop and move the platform were no problem because I had so many new nozzles thrown in to the kit - jamming up was never a problem. Clean up was also easy - just drained and vented the tanks and done.
My biggest gripe honestly is not getting a larger volume of product from you guys because I could have done so much more, but I'm definitely glad with what I received.
I have purchased another vendor's spray foam product, but this time I tried FoamIt Green. Compared to the other product I tried, the FoamIt Green did not have the odor like the other product did. I did not have to use a respirator. Further, the FoamIt Green product was a better deal because it came with the bonus pack which included the suit, goggles, etc. Lastly, the color of the foam made it very easy to tell where you sprayed. Also of note: The nice temperature color-coding on the cannisters made it VERY easy to determine if the foam was ready to be used (other product I tried, I had to guess). I LOVE FoamIt Green and will definitely use it again!
Benefits: Low/No Odor Value for package purchased.
It is the easiest foam to use on the market. It goes on smooth and the R value can't be beat. It effective and so easy it should be called Easy Foam it. I love the product and I will continue to use it. The spray foam applicators and the accessories they provide you with are great.
Hi, I did my first project last weekend. Came out great. Almost can't wait for cold weather to see how much it will improve the space I did (basement sills and under the first floor of my usually cold addition with 2" of foam).
We are doing an RV conversion on a Sprinter van and needed a solution for thermal and acoustic insulation. After much research and debate, we decided on your closed cell spray foam product and could not be happier with that decision! Your informative website and tech support folks gave us the confidence that we were choosing the right product and that we could do the job. The work went ultra-fast (and super fun!) and the result is far superior to the other options we were considering.
Thanks for providing such a great product with excellent service! And enjoy the picture of me striking a “Bond girl” pose in my Tyvek suit!
Thanks Lauren for all of your help and assistance. The project was a 16 X 9 foot crawl space under our first floor bath in our 1880 home. Traditional insulation applications were just not feasible in this cramped crawl space. Foam-It-Green worked beautifully between the overhead rafters and on the three concrete surrounding perimeter walls . The directions were easy and the online demo videos were very helpful also.
Product is awesome! Almost can't wait for winter to set in on Southern New Hampshire to really experience the difference. Almost! :) We've already hit the mid-30's and it's only middle of Sept, so no hurry Mr. Winter.
We bought our house in Peterborough, NH at the end of Jan this year. So in the spirit of taking office in January we set out on a 100 day and a 200 day plan. The previous owners of our new 1960's home did many things to update the house cosmetically, but mostly ignored energy efficiency upgrades. Four bedrooms, and a finished downstairs, yet only one heating zone for the whole house, ~2000 sq. ft., on a oil powered boiler/furnace. Our very first item on the 100 day plan was fixing that and zoning the house into 3 zones. Done, in like 30 days of moving in!
A little background and some pics for you to use if you so choose to.. Our house is over 100 yrs old,,granite stone foundation below grade was good,,above,,not so good,,lots of air flow between the stones.. Re-pointed the outside as best as possible,,came inside the cellar and used cans of expanding foam in between all the stones to stem the air flow..once that was done we used your spray foam to put a continuous coat of insulating foam over the entire inside above grade stone foundation..Came out good,,noticeable difference in temp and air flow in the cellar..On 1/2/13 it was -15 degrees here,,cellar with just the hot water furnace running was 63..normally would have been in low 50's...Now we are sheet rocking using the moisture/mold resistant Sheetrock..
We are very pleased with the spray foam and I already have another project planned using it.
Foam it Green is a fantastic do it yourself product. Guardian Energy Technologies provides incredible support to assure that your job is completed easily and properly. We watched the videos on line that provided an easy step by step guide. We geared up with all the protective supplies provided and sprayed away. The job was as easy as expressed in the videos and was completed quickly without any issues. In fact, it was a fun job.
The most important of Foam it Green is the R value that surpasses other foam spray insulation products. The foam is sprayed on the entire wood framing structure and prevents air movement that can lead to temperature differential and mold. This was the main factor for us using this insulation on our vaulted ceiling in a cold mountainous climate. We added another 30R batt insulation over the foam and the insulation combination provided a relief knowing the room will stay warm in the winter saving money due to the insulation efficiency, quiet, and prevent condensation that would lead to mold.
We live in a condominium and the builder used cotton/fiberglass insulation around the duct work, which created an increased moisture to the point of saturating the double dry wall ceiling. Cut out the dry wall pulled all of the soaked insulation out, let it completely dry, ordered the spray foam, read the easy to follow instructions, and started to spray the area, completely encapsulated the problem area. Closed up the sheet rock. Not only insulated but also sound proofed the area. Great easy to use product. Will highly recommend it to others. It is a great moisture sealer and sound proofing solution.
While our application of Foam it Green is rather unconventional, we found the product to be the perfect solution to our need. We are a scenic design studio we used Foam it Green to create organic shapes to simulate stalactites forming on a man made structure. The scenic artist who applied Foam it Green said it was the most fun he has had at work in a long long time.
Benefits: The instructions we simple to follow. The material behaved just as expected. We finished the fabrication well under the estimate time.
I completed my foam insulation project and things went very well.
After reading everything posted on your web site I placed and order. There were a couple of determining factors for purchasing your system. First of all, there was the price, with Foam it Green I could do it myself for nearly half the price of a contractor and at my convenience. Secondly, the detailed information available, all my questions going into this project were answered. The support from you folks is incredible. Three days after placing my order a truck pulled up in front of the house to deliver my order. Everything promised to be shipped was shipped.
My project was to insulate around the ceil plate and the concrete block wall. Prior to spray foam, I studded out the perimeter of the basement wall keeping the new wall 1"away from the concrete block wall. Applying 1" of foam I now have room for 3 1/2" of fiberglass insulation. The basement walls are a now pretty green and is providing great sound proofing. My summer project is to finish the basement adding several small propane heaters to get ready for Pennsylvania winters.
Can't wait to see the year round energy savings.
PS The only difficulty for me was the Tyvek suit, I'm 6'4" and the suit was a little snug.
After a hard days work of excavating dirt and rubble by hand, we had a peace of mind with the Foam It Green kit since it applied so quickly and easily, allowing us to get out and move on to the next job. We'll be bringing another Foam It Green kit along!
The inclusion of a tyvek suit goggles, gloves, nozzles, etc. is what really made this kit great. Everything was included and made it much less of a hassle in gathering materials.
The shipping was almost unbelievable. The kit shipped same day and arrived from half way across the country in just three days. This is great to know if I'm in a pinch in the future and need to get my hands on some foam quickly.
At first I thought it would be hard to do, but after reading your directions boy was I wrong. Your foam was so easy to install. I love that you send me everything I needed to do the job. I sprayed every nook and spot I could find. It couldn't have been any easier thank you.
I saved money buying insulation, it was easier then putting in insulation, I will save a ton on heating and cooling costs, and I had fun doing it!
I've used professional services for my insulation needs in the past, and Foam It Green is the exact same quality as the insulation the (far more expensive) professional team used. After watching a short video and reading the instructions on the FoamIt Green system, I was able to spray the walls of my kitchen renovation in under an hour. These kits, unlike their competitors, come with plenty of spray and fan tips (I had a few left over when I was done). The system was set up in minutes, and covered an area exactly as described in the ordering process. The ordering and shipping process was honest and straight forward (refreshing when compared to the other sites I visited). Thank you Foam It Green!
I loved the ease of use, ease of setup and ease of disposal. My kitchen is now significantly warmer than it was prior to the foam. I am a customer for life.
Foaming a crawlspace, top down approach.(no digging of crawlspace required). Roll back the carpet, cut plywood 4 feet wide down center of room, pop plywood, remove old insulation and plastic vapor barrier, place plastic on ground for initial vapor barrier, allowing to reach to exterior walls, spray walls/subfloor, replace plywood in 4'x4' pieces, reaching under to spray replacement plywood as you go, last piece, mark plywood joists, pre-spray subfloor with plastic covering temp floor joists. Short but sweet, you get the idea.
Benefits: Improved air quality of entire house. Many thanks, you're all house savers. Gordy.
