Spray Foam insulation


Just get the stuff that is made specifically for windows and doors. There are some formulas available at builder supply houses that I prefer over great stuff, but any closed cell, low expansion foam will suffice.

The can will say right on it Window and Door.
It's low expanding.
Biggest mistake people make is trying to add to much. Leave it back about 1" from the face and let it expand so your not having to go back and cut it all out.
