Guidance issued on spray foam insulation

THE roofing insulation, spray foam, is the subject of a just-published guide, produced by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS).

Says RICS here: “[We have]… launched an impartial and comprehensive guide written, by subject matter experts, to update consumers on the latest [advice] about the use of spray foam as a method of insulating residential properties.

“Thermal improvements can be made to many homes and, if your main goals are to reduce energy bills and carbon emissions, then installing insulation and draught-proofing can achieve this. Spray foam is just one type of thermal insulation which can be applied to various parts of a building as part of a wider thermal improvement plan.”

The announcement continues: “The RICS spray foam guide educates the public on the pros and cons of spray foam installation, following many years of research into the effects of this material,  helping consumer confidence in making informed decisions.”
