You and I know all to well that being in this business there is always the latest and greatest we have to install now to solve all our home problems.
I personally from experience thing foam is ok in some applications. remember each home is different in design and wetness. (Keeping it simple)
I have used foam in the past and have had some serious issues in the begining with 1/2pd open cell in a new construction job. I have also inspected homes with issues on the coast where the lumber shrank after the foam was installed in a new construction. The exterior plywood had already decayed, mold was growing and the insulation was wet in the wall on all the skinned surface after 3 years. Not to mention the carpenter ants that had moved in rent free. Now for the past few years I was also using www.nationalfiber
. on our jobs. NO issues, No complaints, and no bugs. From now on will only use dense pack cellulose.
Good luck to you, everyone has an opinion on this, but I will not use foam again.
