Shannon from Our Homes Magazine wrote an entertaining post about her experience caulking and insulating her home. “One of my obsessions is caulking and insulating.”
In her attempt to keep mice from scurring about her home, she “went to town” with spray foam and caulking filling every hole in sight. Shannon often experienced problems with the spray foam products she was using when she overfilled the space and created twice as much work with trimming excess foam insulation.
“Despite having been told I am not allowed to go near anything with spray foam, I filled all the cracks between the floor and the wall of our drafty bedroom. I used a new product, ArcticFoam Products, it filled the cracks and didn’t over expand! Much to my husband’s chagrin, the room is much less drafty.”
Shannon kept up the momentum and decided to move onto the sunroom with ArcticFoam. “We decided to give the Arctic Foam another shot and used it all around our new windows and doors. It worked perfectly, barely any work trimming the excess and the room is toasty except for the coldest of days. ”
Thank you Shannon for your giving homeowners (and contactors!) hope that spray foam doesn’t have to be messy and troublesome. We look forward to hear about where you go next on your insulation adventure!
