You’re on the schedule to have spray foam insulation installed in your home, but inclement weather has hit and you aren’t sure if the company will need to reschedule.
Michigan is a fickle state and is known to see all four of the seasons sometimes in one day. It could be sunny one minute with torrential winds and rain the next, or a balmy 60 degrees during the day and blizzard conditions at night.
Let's jump right into how weather can affect spray foam insulation installation.
Can Foam Insulation Be Installed in Cold Weather?
RetroFoam of Michigan crews work in all weather conditions from downpours to snowstorms.
Our estimators and crews are braving the weather while installing spray foam insulation in homes across the lower peninsula.
The only time a scheduled installation would be canceled is if there is a weather-related state of emergency, in which case we would contact you to reschedule.
What Temperature Can Spray Foam Be Applied?
While RetroFoam of Michigan works in all weather conditions, there are other spray foams on the market that have temperature limitations.
This really comes into play with closed cell spray foams, especially in pole barns. Some manufacturers recommend once it gets below a certain temperature, then you’ll have a cold substrate and risk creating condensation.
This means those temperatures will vary depending on the manufacturer and material. It could be 30-degrees all the way down to 5-degrees depending on the product.
Scheduling Your Spray Foam Insulation Installation
Rain or shine, winter or summer, our crews work in it all.
