Spray Foam Insulation Kits
Spray foam is a highly-effective form of insulation for your home. Spray foam provides air-tight protection against air infiltration, and works hard to save energy and money. For an overview of spray foam insulation, see our article here.
If you are a do-it-yourselfer who isn't afraid to get a little dirty, and like to tackle home projects on your own rather than pay a professional to do it, there are spray foam insulation kits available to make installing foam insulation easy.
These all-inclusive kits contain everything necessary to properly apply spray foam insulation into your home's attic spaces or walls. While installing insulation of any kind is always easiest during new home construction, spray foam kits allow you to easily add insulation to an existing home. With the cost of energy skyrocketing, it's always a good time to add insulation.

The Benefits of Foam It Green Spray Foam
While a spray foam insulation kit makes installation easy, dare I say even enjoyable, it's only worthwhile if the finished product is going to perform.
Foam It Green insulation is a high quality product. As mentioned, it has an R-Value of 6.7 per inch of closed cell foam; is STM E-84 Fire Rated, Free of all CFC's, VOC's, Penta-BDE's, and Formaldehyde; and designed for application with no outside power or pressure source.
Common Sense Precautions
As with many home improvement projects, it's important to protect yourself during the installation of Foam It Green spray foam insulation. You will need to wear the supplied Tyvek protective suit, gloves, goggles, and footwear protection (or just old shoes). A fit-tested respirator mask with an organic vapor filter and particulate pre-filter is also required to avoid inhaling any fine particulate foam material. It's also important to be extremely careful when working on ladders.
