DIY Spray foam


I'm considering spray foaming the underside of the roof of my 24x28 garage/workshop.
It's a trussed roof and the floor is plywooded and used for storage otherwise, I would batt insulate it.
Have any of you spray foamed something like this?
Pros? Cons?

One job I would hire out.
Ever seen it done by a pro before?
There going to have all the proper equipment and get this done in less then a day.
It's one nasty messy job.

Not sure. Usually when this is done. They install the ventilation shoots in-between the rafters before foaming. You said trusses. So i'm not sure.

Don't bother to try it on that large a size.

It will cost you more money and not come out well.
