Spray foam insulation gets sprayed inside your walls and attic, filling in all the nooks and crannies. Doing so saves you money on energy bills by keeping your home nice and toasty in the winter and cool in the summer. But there’s a catch: some mortgage lenders aren’t big fans of spray foam; it might make selling your house trickier. And, because spray foam can trap moisture, it could lead to mold and mildew growth if you’re not careful.

The bottom line is that spray foam insulation has pros and cons. And it’s important to weigh them carefully before making a decision. But at least you’ll be armed with knowledge after watching this video. Roger’s not exactly singing spray foam’s praises. Sure, it saves energy and seals things tighter than a drum, but hold your horses before you foam up your whole house.

Mortgage folks get nervous around this stuff. They can’t see what’s going on under all that foam, especially on the roof. Imagine hidden dampness and rot when you’re trying to sell your place. And there are two types of foam: tight-lipped closed cell and chatty open cell.
