Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Alldatoys66 Fill big gaps
I bought the big gap filler when installing styro/ aggregate panels around my foundation. I needed something to fill the gaps since the basement walls are not straight. The walls bow in so there is a larger gap at the bottom than the top.
After installing the panel, I filled the backside with foam and braced until set. This held the panel in place and level. Upon backfilling with dirt, there was no movement. Even when the ground is saturated with rain water the panels have not bowed at all since about a foot and a half of the 2'x4' panel is buried.
I highly recommend this product.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by MrEd Hard to clean after use
Very hard to use, its messy and hard to control the amount you need for open space. When spraying hole it grows more and more leaving excess foam outside of hole. Clean up is the worse, once dried almost impossible to clean away access. I used a putty blade to try to shape foam, it did not work well and could not clean putty blade. What im saying is yes it covers small holes but hard to use product neatly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by walnut Great results, love this product!
Fills the big gap perfectly, like a rigid fortress that keeps rats and other critters out.
A few tips:
1. look at the clock and shook the can for a minute
1. always make sure to hold can upside down when dispensing
2. If you have a small project, you may want to identify other areas you could use the product, because once mixed and open, any leftover will be hardened and cannot be saved for later use.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Louis Very good Product
Love the Great Stuff foams, but they certainly find ways to make them less than a good value. I HIGHLY recommend that if you have a large project or even a small but intricate project, that you invest in the Pro Gun version. The control and the ability to stop and come back later using the same can will save a ton of money over the long haul. The control is fantastic as well. However, this is about the can version so I will say that it too is great for broad foaming where control is not needed and where you can use a full can in a few minutes. I wish that Pest Resistant and Fire Retardant were in ALL versions of the Great Stuff Foam, but sadly they get you to buy and waste a lot if needing the Pest Resistant versions on small projects.
We used this particular foam to fill the void at the end of interior walls where they met the exterior walls on our renovation. The Spray Foam Insulation installer refused to fill this area due to pressure, but the Great Stuff foam filled and then pushed out the gaps to stop the airflow that was coming in. While the “Large Gap” foam was used here, I would actually recommend the “Window and Door” Version as it seemed to plump better and weigh less so it filled the void quicker and more thoroughly. Great product none the less!
Wear Gloves!!!! If it gets on your skin, apply an oily lotion to help reduce the tackiness. You will be Yellow/Orange/Green (depending on version) for several days though!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TAE Great Stuff - many great applications
The pipe for our shower-head had become loose over time - this was an interesting problem to solve without tearing out tiles and exposing the pipe - I decided to try Great Stuff Big Gap Filler to solve this without any invasive destruction to the shower tiles - it worked like a charm - shower-head is rock solid now thanks to the amazing properties of Great Stuff. This is yet another application for a great product!

Needed to fill a gap in the corner of the window sill and this worked better than any other product. Was also easy to use and dried quickly.
