How Long Does
Spray Foam Insulation Last?
If you're thinking of
having your home treated with spray foam insulation, you're

material such as rubber or plastic. Poly means "many"
and "mer" means "part", so a polymer is many parts of
molecules strung together to make a durable product. If
you're familiar with rubber, spray foam is similar to that.
Spray foam, rubber balls,
plastic pens are made from "inert" polymers. "Inert"
just means that they don't change. They don't rot like
wood, rust like metal, or go bad like that food in the back of
your fridge. If you put a toy Lego in your attic, and
checked on it in ten years, it would be the same. In

plastic items made from inert polymers. They don't break
down by themselves.
