If I go the rigid board way, once I place the rigid against the outer surfaces on the inside of the rim joist, do I still need to install batt insulation to fill the rest of the area? Some of my rim joist areas are about 2 feet deep. Do I put the rigid board on the outer vertical and lower horizontal areas? Like creating an L shape inside the area.
Sorry to bump an old thread but was wondering where some of the best places to get DIY spray foam kits. HD and Lowes do not seem to carry much past the spray can.

So far I have found a few on eBay and http://www.energyefficientsolutions....amproducts.asp. I am looking to do a 340 sqft master bedroom over a garage.

DIY spray foam kits


I would Google the company Foam It Green, I think they have good prices and shipping..it also doesn't hurt to look on Ebay. Some of the bigger kits can be put away for a little while until another project, just in case you need to end up buying a larger amount.

DIY spray foam kits


Here is what I came up with so far. Both products appear to be solid but price might be the winning factor here.

http://www.energyefficientsolutions.com/
FOAM605 - Spray Foam Kit - Quick Set, Two component Polyurethane (1.75 lb/cf), 605 BDFT yield
$590 + 90 shipping = $680

http://www.sprayfoamdirect.com/
FOAM IT 602 DIY Polyurethane Spray Foam Kit
$607.99 + $97.99 = $705.98

DIY spray foam kits


foam is foam... no difference between your two choices check with local resources. Many states will give tax incentives for this work. Home Star should go through this year but work can not be down by DIYer.. must be done by BP'i building professional auditors. Credits up to $8000 will be avialable towards air sealing and insulation work.
