Follow Up To Great Stuff Foam Insulation StoryIn your last issue’s Best & Worst Buys, Bob Moty said he did not recommend using Great Stuff, a foam insulation that comes in an aerosol can. In my opinion, this product really is “Great Stuff” if used correctly. Great Stuff (and probably every other brand of foaming insulation) offers a “low-expansion” version specifically for use in window, door jambs, and other spaces where it’s not desirable to put pressure on the containing walls or structure.
I’ve used many different grades of aerosol foam insulation for about 40 years including high-expansion; regular expansion; rodent-resistant - which has a buttering agent to prevent gnawing through; and low-expansion, water-based solvent, mostly with great success.
