What brand of spray foam did you use? Did you like it?
How much foam did it take?
Did you find someone in CO to patch those holes in your steel?
Also, hey if you ever need to do some work that you can't do in your neighborhood, you're welcome to come to my property in Morrison. We got 87 acres, my bus is here with all the tools.
F & C
Hey man! Sorry for the slow reply. Been busy!
1. We used Foam It Green- the 602 size
. I didn't do a good job of putting it up, but I think it'll be ok. Will be better than the stuff that was in there before. We're also planning to put in Reflectix with aluminum tape once the ceiling starts going up.
The foam was easy to use, but messy. The website says it depends on the person for how messy the process is- which I'm sure is true to some extent. Clearly I'm the messy kind because it got everywhere. I'd use it again- great instructions, they give you just about everything you need, and the 602 kit covered the whole ceiling (again not evenly, 2-3 inches in some places, 1" in others). I did have a little left over, though. Biggest thing is making sure those metal surfaces are warm enough for the foam to adhere to or else it will fall off.
2. As far as the holes, we used some spare steel and cut it to fit, then used JB weld to patch the larger pieces (like where the coolant hoses go through the floor, if yours did). The smaller bolt holes we used 100% silicon. Its a little delicate at first, but after it dries and it gets touched up it seems like it will do ok.
Thanks for the offer for the property. Very much appreciated. Can't foresee not being able to do most everything here but I'm sure we'll run into something.
We've bought several tools already- if you'd like to borrow some let us know! Can't wait to see your progress
