What is Spray Foam Insulation?
Spray foam insulation is a type of building insulation that can be used in the roof and loft space, either through the joist or rafter level. It is extremely efficient at keeping heat inside when it is cold outside and also keeping hot air outside when the temperature outside is hotter.

Is it safe to install Spray foam myself?
Spray foam insulation can be hazardous when being sprayed by someone who is not qualified due to dangerous fumes. The spray foam particles can also enter your eyes, enter your skin or be breathed in through your nose or mouth unless proper clothing is worn.
Spray foam insulation should be installed by a trained and qualified professional as you can also damage the structural integrity of a building if the spray foam is not applied correctly.
