Sprayfoam Insulation

Last week the installation of the spray foam work began. The crew worked Monday and Tuesday on the first and second floors and finished the basement and garage areas late last night. We caught the workers as they were cleaning up yesterday and they gave us a tour of the house.

Derek and I went back on lunch this afternoon to take a few pictures, making note of a few areas it looks like they missed: Behind the master tub and upstairs shower insert, behind the fireplace insert, a couple spots in the attic where the decking can still be seen, a small area in between the wall of windows in the great room, above the hood vent in the kitchen, and another couple spots between the laundry room wall and garage. Derek sent an email to our new home consultant to express concern about this and the fact that it appears they sprayed open cell foam in the garage when we were quoted and under contract for closed cell foam (which is more resistant to moisture issues hence it being the installation standard for external foam insulation).  We are awaiting a response back. So far, the builder has been great with addressing these small oversights in a timely fashion and we are anticipating a similar response.

Next step is another county code inspection, and then drywall and exterior cladding work can begin!
