Why Remove Spray Foam Insulation?​

Spray foam insulation, particularly when installed improperly or without adequate ventilation, can cause several issues that impact your home’s integrity and marketability. Here’s why you might need to consider its removal:

  • Health and Structural Risks: According to a recent government report, spray foam insulation can trap moisture, leading to dampness and potential decay of roof timbers. This is especially true when open-cell foam is applied to a high resistance membrane without a vapor control layer. The continuous high relative humidity (RH) during winter can lead to significant structural damage.

  • Mortgage and Equity Release Issues: Many mortgage lenders and equity release companies turn down applications for homes with spray foam insulation. This can severely limit your financial options and make selling your home difficult. [Source: Government Report]

  • Increased Energy Costs: For spray foam insulation to be effective, it often requires heating a significantly larger area, including the loft space, which can increase your energy bills.

Government Findings on Spray Foam Insulation

A detailed government analysis highlights the high risk of decay to timber rafters when open-cell insulation is used without proper vapor control. The restricted outward diffusion of moisture leads to continuously high humidity levels, increasing the likelihood of timber decay and structural issues. [Source: Government Report]

Benefits of Removing Spray Foam Insulation

  • Restore Your Home’s Integrity: Removing spray foam insulation can return your home to its original state, ensuring the roof timbers can breathe and dry out naturally, preventing long-term damage.

  • Improve Marketability: With spray foam insulation removed, your home will be more attractive to buyers and eligible for financing from all mortgage lenders and equity release companies.
