However, spray foam has gained a reputation for being problematic when improperly installed by unlicensed contractors. Unscrupulous installers can create a number of issues, including the formation of frost lines that may damage roofs and lead to leaks, and the release of toxic chemicals, such as polyurethane and isocyanate, which can cause eye and respiratory distress when inhaled. These issues have tarnished the reputation of the product and made some mortgage lenders reluctant to lend money on properties that have spray foam insulation installed.

In March 2023, the RPSA and Property Care Association published inspection guidelines for surveyors to use when inspecting a property with spray foam installed.

Because of its expanded nature, spray foam can be sprayed into wall cavities, crawl spaces, attics, and other difficult to reach areas. It can also be sprayed under basement slabs, around foundation footings, and around heating equipment. It is often used in new construction projects as well as for renovations. It is also available in a variety of thicknesses to meet the specific requirements of each building project.
