Where to look for a spray foam machine....
 
...... I am looking for something to do my home 6000+ sqftage of roof to be done with walls and the I can turn around and sell it. I am looking for something above entry level but something I can learn to use easily and then pass on after by selling it to the next person.

Anyone know of anyone?

dont you need to be certified to do spray foam?

No and to bring someone in will cost me between 30-45 thousand. I can but little tanks but would prefer to go with a machine and then do the resell.

Thanks John. But I am thinking the little tanks are too wasteful for the size of my project.

I am going to call the company and see how much 1 'tube' covers

I have found one on Craiglist too. 12k worth 25 he says heated hose, sounds promising

Off Topic Here. Does anyone know how I can fight a ban on the CT forum?

Dont forget your negative pressure respirator/bunny suit as you dont want to breathe the sprayfoam vapors while spraying.

Soythane is the only gig Ive seen that is above spray can level but below the full size commercial spray rig.

Certification is a strange thing. Who is certifying whom? Often times manufacturers will certify their contractors. The edge up is that in these cases the contractors can often sell extended warrantys... or in siome cases if youa re not certified then there will be no warranty on the product. Fair enough, but you CAN still install the product if you can get the material.

For example, We install various materials by various different manufacturers. For logistical reasons, when installing single ply roofing, we often opt for Versico. We are not certified by Versico, but their product is easier to get. We install a lot of it and we do it right. We can not sell their extended warrantys which are extremely common on commercial. Therefore if someone wants the manufacturer no dollar limit warranty, we sell genflex which we are certified by.

Certified and licensed should not be confused, the two are not the same. Typically a license will be issued by a governmental body who often times will have a test involved and will usually check for bonding and insurance.

General contractor on this project yes. Do I do this for a living no. It never stated I had to make a living from it, I just want to be able to read the forums. If I can't contribute I am ok with that it is just that it is a such a great source of info. Just like I hit scubaboard for my scuba questions.


And Thanks Guys I got may machine. Soythane.com REALLY APPRECIATE IT

Be forwarned about running a spray foam machine yourself- the foam expands like crazy. Make sure you have done your research before you begin. If you get some of this material in your lungs, you can die. For example, breath in an amount equal to a nail head, by the time it gets done expanding, you will have a golf ball in your lungs.
