Spray Foam Removal: Everything You Need to Know


Solving Poorly Installed Spray Foam

One of the biggest concerns that we hear from prospective customers is that they think that their spray foam insulation has been installed incorrectly or the foam itself is not the right material for the job. In many of these cases, we find that the spray foam system is perfectly installed and can allay their fears, but in many others we find ourselves having to recommend removal and reinstallation.

We know that the prospect of having spray foam removed can be incredibly frustrating and expensive, but we are here to help and will do everything we can to right the wrongs of other companies who left your property this way.

The good news is that, as a spray foam expert, our team is ready to help and provide trustworthy advice that you can rely on, making your removal as pain-free and speedy as possible.

The Benefits of Removing Poorly Installed Spray Foam

If you've noticed that your spray foam isn't working the way it should but you want to save on costs then you may be considering ignoring the problem and leaving it in place, but this is not wise. Take a look at some of the main benefits you can look forward to when you organise spray foam removal for your property:

  • Increase the Value of Your Property – badly installed spray foam will have a direct impact on the value and saleability of your property, meaning that removal will give you a greater chance of improving the money you can make when you decide to sell.
  • Reduce the Impact of Closed-Cell Insulation – closed cell spray foam is not recommended for residential properties as it can cause condensation and damp. Arranging the removal of this material will help your property to breathe better and stop your roof timbers from rotting.
  • Make Repairs Easier – if you want to replace your roof or your poorly installed spray foam has caused damage to your property, then getting it removed will make it much easier to complete repairs. Once they are all finished, you can then choose to have the right spray foam installed by an expert service.
  • You Can Repurpose Your Attic – if you decide to have spray foam installed previously but now want to renovate your attic space then getting the foam removed will allow you to make progress without having to work around the foam, resulting in more space and less fuss.

How to Deal with Mortgage Lender Concerns About Spray Foam

There have been a number of mortgage companies that have expressed concern around the use of spray foam and even instances where the use of spray foam has stopped individuals from being able to get a mortgage on the property they want. While this is true, there are very specific reasons for this happening, including properties that have poorly installed spray foam, the wrong spray foam such as closed-cell foams and even occasions when an installation service has sealed a roof space completely leading to condensation and rot in the wooden timbers.

If you have had spray foam installed incorrectly and you want to sell your property, choosing spray foam removal may be the only option left available to you.

The Cost of Removing Spray Foam

Many people contact the Countrywide Coatings team to ask if there is a set price for spray foam removal, but unfortunately, there is not as there are so many variables that need to be considered.

From the location and the quantity of spray foam to the type of foam that needs to be removed, each factor needs to be carefully considered to ensure that you get an accurate quote and timescale to consider. Rather than blindly agreeing to a company providing this service, let us come and offer you a no-obligation quote so that you know what you are facing. 

Can I Remove Spray Foam Myself?

No, this is never recommended as an appropriate solution due to the risk of damage that can occur. Many people will advocate sawing or prying the foam from its installation location but this can take other things will it too, leaving you with costly repairs to cover to get your property back up to scratch.

Rather than hacking at your spray foam, contact an expert spray foam service to ask for advice and arrange an assessment of your spray foam so that they can tell you the best way to proceed with the spray foam removal.
