4 Spray Foam Problems You Might Encounter if You Don't Rely on Experts

Today, we'll tell you four of the most common problems with amateur spray foam insulation installation to highlight the importance of relying on experts like HD Horne Spray Foam and Insulation.

The four most common problems we see and hear about are:

The spray foam isn't thick enough

Without an experienced eye, it can be difficult to tell if the spray foam is thick enough for your installation. If not applied correctly and evenly, there could be thin spots or gaps in coverage, which won't provide adequate insulation.

Your spray foam installers miss some air leakage sites

Air leakage sites are cracks or crevices where air can escape your home. Unless they are located and sealed with spray foam insulation properly, you may not get the energy savings you were hoping for. An expert contractor will know exactly where to look for these areas of concern to ensure this doesn't happen.

The installers sprayed either too much or too little spray foam

Spray foam can be expensive, and you want to ensure it's used efficiently. But without the knowledge of experienced contractors, it can be difficult to tell how much should be applied to get the desired results. If too much is applied, it will cost more than necessary, and if not enough is applied, the insulation won't provide adequate protection from air leakage.

Spray foam insulation contracts and pulls away from framing

In some cases, improperly installed spray foam can cause a "shrink wrap" effect where the insulation has contracted and pulled away from the framing material. This can create gaps in coverage, leading to air leakage and reduced energy efficiency.
