The kit had all the safety items necessary to protect the installer performing the installation, from the droppings and fumes of the foam material. In addition, the kit also contained all the extra nozzles and tools necessary to perform the spray of the foam seamlessly. However, because of the cool temperature, my foam installation didn't expand to full growth on my shed steel, as anticipated, but did seal every crack and crevice beautifully.
It was exciting to notice the temperature drop of the treated structure was pronounced. In addition, it was a pleasure to visually see that no moisture had entered the treated structure through the roof and walls, do to recent driving rain and wind. It has always been dry and has stayed that way, from the original day of the foam being installed.
It is also a pleasure to use such a product that exceeded my expectation, in so many areas: safety, ease of installation and performance.
I am finished with my foam it green project and have to say that I'm very pleased with the end result. I already liked you guys on facebook, posted a pic, and got my t - shirt, thanks!
I'm so happy with it want to do it to my entire house!
So a quick synopsis, I took what amounts to a shed, 14×16 foot, I sprayed the entire inside walls (2×4), ceiling, and underneath the floor. The whole structure just sits on some cement blocks. I put up 2 layers of sheet rock on the inside, mostly for sound, along with electrical, and now I have a movie theatre in my backyard! I live in New England so it gets super cold up here, but that's when I started to understand the power of the green foam. I have a computer and a flat screen in there with some stereo equipment, and a small space heater that is only for supplemental heat. Here's what's cool, I keep my computer on 24-7 and the heat the computer generates is almost enough to keep the entire space warm! That's how effective this stuff is! I don't work for green foam nor was paid to say this.
I am 52, and my son and I are doing this project ourselves. It didn't take us any time at all. It was really easy. I did most of the spraying. My son did a little. It's a great product. Anybody can do it if I can! Here is a short video:
I finished my little project last Thursday and I will tell you that your "Foam it Green" insulation was a LOT easier to apply than I was expecting. The application went very fast... I'm very impressed with your product. The hardest thing about the project was getting my body in and around in the crawl area. I'll be ready to tackle the basement perimeter sill soon and It will be a piece of cake... I'll be standing up on this one. I will be putting in my order soon.
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!
My next and final projed will be the upstairs which will entail 6 kits. I do like the product it is easy to use, and from my project of last year where I converted an enclosed porch to a 12 month room the results were very good. I sprayed the walls, crawl space, and underside of the floor and the heat retention was superb. I sprayed the underside of the floor not so much for the insulation, but to keep the bugs out and it did just that . I attached some pictures of the Labor Day weekend project.
The hardest part was pulling down the old insufficient fiberglass insulation. Foam It Green’s kits were quick for me to understand and easy to apply. Will definitely be recommending Foam It Green to all of our clients! Benefits include: Ease of application - Not having to have a backup hand to handle bulky fiberglass insulation. Getting a full seal on a room with added mold and fire resistance!
This is truly an amazing product. Easy to use, fast to apply and does the job very efficiently. I had never used this product before and was astonished at how well this product works. I spray foamed a 30X36 workshop (walls and ceiling) in less than 5 hours with the help of my son. Before the insulation my workshop was extremely hot from the summer sun, but after I completed I've noticed a significant difference in the temperature. This insulation has dropped the temperature of my shop by at least 15 degrees F during the day.
The only negative thing was I needed more safety goggles for the job. I ruined the two goggles in the first hour. This foam does not clean off plastic at all. Then I discovered another trick. I used a ziplock bag to cover the lense of my goggles. Remove/replace the bag when vision gets blurry and save your goggles!
I sprayed my entire house with Foam it Green and it went great. Even better, I saved over $8,000 versus going with a "professional" spray foam contractor, and did it on my on schedule while being in total control of the results. The service I received from the people I talked with at Foam it Green was outstanding.
Are you kidding me!!!! That stuff rules! This will make you laugh. I live on the water in Rhode Island. Our house is a 980 square foot bungalow. No basement, just a very small crawl space and NO INSULATION under the house! Even worse, Only the original sub flooring is there from 1915. In between some of the planks you can see light from outside. I always ask contractors what to do, but they wouldn't touch it. That is because half of the house has dirt right up to and even up in between the floor joists. It is as if the builder plopped it right down on the ground.
Well, I climbed under there and dug the whole thing out myself. I lost about ten pounds in 2 long weekends. Then, it was even more cold! It had a better air flow (convection). By the grace of God I found your company! The best product for insulation ever invented- simple as that. I ordered the medium canisters (closed cell). The ones about the size of grill propane tank. I blew about 4 inches in some spots and 6 inches in others, but I ran out! It was too cold outside to finish the job (late October), so we went through the winter almost finished. From inside the house you could feel exactly where I ran out. Most of the floor was warm and one inch over cold as ice. That product is amazing! I am waiting for my next paycheck to order the next kit. I will finish it off this year.
I would just like to say that with so few products living up to their “hype” these days, it was refreshing to find that Foam It Green worked as advertised. It appears that a lot of reviewers are in the east and are using Foam It Green to keep their homes warm. I needed the opposite – I am in California and I built an accessory structure – pool house/game room with an open ceiling and no ridge vents. The roofing material and OSB underlayment were getting so hot that on warm days the entire room felt like an oven. I used Foam It Green on the entire underside of the roof, and it did an unbelievable job of mitigating the heat. Now, on a 90 degree day, a single 8000 BTU air conditioner keeps the place (670 square feet) cool. I can’t believe the difference and it was so easy to apply! Thank you!!
I used almost one kit of the duel 602 item I bought, on the exterior walls on one apartment. First time I did it and it was pretty easy. There was no insulation in the walls and you could tell by the sound in the apartment that is was insulated. I probably put on two inches in most of the exterior walls.
I was really surprised how solid and quiet it made my "cabin" project. I'm building a small off grid place out of shipping containers. I plan to use your product more in the future as I build. Here's a picture!
Having seen spray foam done 'professionally' at work, I was skeptical about doing it myself. After my experience, I'm going to keep coming back. My house has 4 additions that have been added over the years, and usually insulation was never on their mind. My latest project is my kitchen where the original outside walls are tongue and groove, with vinyl siding over top. The insulation was bare and there was NO insulation in the rim joist space. Now I've got the rim joist spaces insulated on the outside wall and a solid vapor barrier sprayed in the wall cavity. Looks like a warm winter is headed my way! In my kitchen I am happiest to have the vapor barrier qualities as well as the mold resistance in the sometimes wet area.
I work for a stage and set fabricating company, We use spray foam to build up and shape our pieces,( rocks, caves, statues, buildings). The customer service is great and ships fast. This product saves my company time, and time is money.
I purchased a 1200 unit to spray my sister basement ceiling and it went pretty week for a first project! We will see this winter if it helps with her heating costs on a 40 year old ranch home…. she has asthma so if she does not have bad summer its been worth it. Even thou when she ask me how many time i had done this she about had a heart attack when I said counting your house "one" but she's happy now!
The foam job on my addition went fantastic. The kit was easy to use and I'm very satisfied with your product. I've been rotating in and out of Russia since January and will be heading up into the Russian Arctic / Northern Kara Sea in a few days. Will wrap things up this fall and return to the states. In the future I'm sure the delivery truck will be delivering more to me. Thanks for a great product.
I would like to tell you about the results of my project. I sprayed the underside of my shop roof then used fiberglass batts to fill the 2 x 6 rafter space. last year it was unbearably hot upstairs during the summer. This year we are in the midst of our hottest weather so far. The shop is now pleasantly cool with a few windows open! What a difference! The shop is divided into 2 sections. One is insulated and one is not. It is very obvious of the benefits of insulation. Next year I hope to spray the rest of the roof as well as the underside of my floors in the house. Thanks for the great product!
