Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JeffA Covered better than I expected
I read through many reviews of this product. Most complained of the kits not coming close to meeting the stated coverage. So, for my ~170 ft2 skylights-in-the-attic project, I went ahead and got 2 of the 200ft2 kits(should cover my 170 ft2 a little over 2 inches deep). Once starting I sprayed almost continually and only changed nozzles once. When all was said and done, I've got at least 3.5 inches of coverage. It was plenty warm when I applied. The only reason it is not 5 star is the price. Lessons learned:
1) The coverage was about as advertised.
2) Get a Tyvek suit and good respirator (I used both).
3) It is hot in an attic in Northern Virginia in June.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by keithd pretty straightforward
Overall i am happy with how this turned out. I have a 90 year old rowhouse and am renovating the basement into a living area. I mostly wanted to apply this product to exterior brick walls and places where ceiling and rim joists meet brick. This foam kit was easy to get up and running and performed as expected. I can already tell drafts have been reduced and it got quieter down there. Odor wasn't bad but I had windows open and a respirator while i applied it. It dries very quickly and was easy to remove from surfaces that i dripped on when dry. Make sure you prep beforehand as you really want to finish the job quickly once you start as the nozzle can get gewy. I think i swapped out the wide spray nozzle 3 times in all. Id like to see the price come down a little. I would probably have bought 2 of these instead of 1 if they were less than $300.00.

Worked well for me as I was insulating rim joist in basement in areas that were hard to reach (electrical wires and pipes were in the way). I couldn't reach areas to install insulation board but this product allowed me to reach in tight spots and shoot insulation where I needed it. I would have given this product 5 stars if it wasn't priced so high. I feel it's a little over priced compared to bids I got from professional spray foam companies.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JeffFromMaine Product's fire block fails to meet code in Maine (and maybe elsewhere too)
I wanted to like this product, but I can't.
I live in Maine. And the product's fire block does not meet code here.
In Maine, when spray-foam is applied to habitable or occupiable spaces, it must have an approved 15 minute thermal (or ignition) barrier. The Maine Fire Marshall has released a memo stating which thermal barriers are approved. This product's fire block did not make the cut.
Is this the case elsewhere? I don't know. But it is important to check, because if it's not and you need to purchase and apply a separate thermal barrier, the project's price will go up significantly.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by jr DO NOT BUY!!!
Do not buy this foam! Things can go terribly wrong as the manufacturer puts too little catalyzing/setting agent as compared to the polyurethane foam. The result is a wall cavity full of oozing glue that will not set. This is a horrible mess and disaster. You would think they would over provision the catalyst?? Awful Awful result.

I was questionable about using the product, concerned about the amount of space it would cover, smell, and possible mess it would make. 1. I used two kits because a larger kit was not available when I went to purchase to cover a 50 b 50 base ceiling joists and in case I did not like the product I could stop with a return of half my purchase. 2. I searched the web and found that there were issue with the smell in industrially applied foam. After applying the smell of paint odor was gone within hrs. of venting the basement. 3. With a little preparation can be limited. I cleared the area where I would be working to easily move the latter and I placed the spray kit on a flat cart so it rolled with me as I moved. I also pre placed the nozzles on the box so it was less time to replace them as they clogged. If any spray hit the ground of anywhere it did not belong, it is easily removed with a scrapper and shop vac. Over all I am extremely satisfied with the application; I only now realize how much heat was lost through the daft in the our basement.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by sandkach saved me money
First time product user. Went through 2 kits for my needs. Used on basement rim joist and inside bay window cantilevers. I was quoted $1500 to spray my basement so spending $600+ and doing it myself with care and attention was well worth it. The drafts are gone through all the cracks and holes. Unbelievable what you can see when you really look in these areas (will keep insects out as well). Using product was not hard. If you are a diy-er, you should be able to handle it (its like spray painting). Make sure temps are right on the product, your walls, your basement. I used a Black and Decker TLD100 to test temps. I noticed the fan nozzle used less product then the cone nozzle. Price wise I could have bought a 600kit for the same cost as two 200kits (lesson learned for others). I used this product along with Great Stuff for larger gaps to save use on this product. I topped off my work with R-30 insulation on the rim joist and inside the cantilevers. Waiting for my energy bills to reflect the difference. Will do attic next year using bigger 600 kit.
