Expanding Foam Insulating Spray

We've used Great Stuff insulating foam for years.  You know the stuff: red and black cans, straws, goes everywhere, ruins everything.

We hate the stuff.  It gets on your clothes and never comes off.  It stays on your hands and arms for weeks.  It drools out of wherever you apply it, and now you have to figure out how to clean it off.  It keeps foaming after you're done and leaves you with a mess on the floor.  If you try and use the can a second time you find yourself headed into town to by another can, even if it's only thirty minutes later.  And, one in three times, you find the can completely inert.

However, there's a very simple solution.  Never use it again


Just a reminder: we are not paid or compensated by any tool or material manufacturer, nor by any distributor or vendor.  We provide our input and opinions to make life easier for homeowners and other independent contractors.  We don't mind if anyone else reads our pages but we want to help those who could use it by sharing our experience, in hopes they can avoid our mistakes and disappointments.

In the interest of transparency, Marshalltown told us they would send us a new float-type taping knife but they haven't actually done so.

We joke about being sponsored by DeWalt - and would love to be - but they have never contacted us.

Additional Information


Articles – Good topics for articles include anything related to your company – recent changes to operations, the latest company softball game – or the industry you’re in. General business trends (think national and even international) are great article fodder, too.

Mission statements – You can tell a lot about a company by its mission statement. Don’t have one? Now might be a good time to create one and post it here. A good mission statement tells you what drives a company to do what it does.

Company policies – Are there company policies that are particularly important to your business? Perhaps your unlimited paternity/maternity leave policy has endeared you to employees across the company. This is a good place to talk about that.
