DIY Spray foam kits?

Posted by Greg__R (My Page) on

I want to insulate the underside of a staircase that is exposed to our garage. There is a lot of cold air / drafts during the winter months. I've talked to spray insulation companies and it's not worth having them come out unless it's a large job. Are there DIY products that allow me to apply spray insulation (besides a bunch of spray cans)?

I'm talking about the foam spray; not the loose fiberglass stuff.

Two companies that I can recommend, they've been around for quite some time now:

tigerfoam.com

I don't know if you still need any advice on this, but either way; I recommend http://www.sprayfoamdirect.com/; they sell polyurethane foam kits with tons of information for DIY application, and you can get the suits and ventilation masks from them too.
Their help center is really informative as well--lots of how-to videos and safety information.

Good luck!
