My contractor is using EnerFoam by DOW to insulate the around the frames of
my inserts. IS this the proper stuff to use. I alwasy heard that the stuff
to use should be non expandable, but the stuff he used is definitely
Is this the right stuff? He already has done 2 our of 15 windows and the 2
windows that he used the EnerFoam stuff work well. One is a vertical slider
and one is a casement. My concern is that they will bow over time. If they
didn't bow now can they still bow over time?
Should he be using non expandable foam? If so what is the best product(s)
he shoudl be using?
Expandable foam does expand, but it doesn't continue to expand over time.
I'm quite sure it has already expanded to its full capacity. If the windows
are fine now, they should be fine in the future. If your workman knows
what he's doing, then he applied the correct amount of foam with the
anticipation of how much it would expand. Persnally, I prefer it over the
non expanding foam, as it fills every crevice without fail.
