Window foam

Window foam, sometimes referred to as construction foam, building foam or insulating foam, is a very cheap but highly effective material used to improve the sealing round windows or door frames. Very often this foam is categorised as either pistol foam which is typically available in 750ml tubes and is inserted into a foam pistol for application or, alternatively, spray foam which can be sprayed directly onto the required area from a spray can. Both products are easy and simple to use and can be used for smaller improvements to walls or plasterwork by any home owner or DIY person. The application of the foam allows the insulation properties to be effectively improved without needing to have complete replacement of window or door.

Due to its versatility window foam or construction foam is typically used in both new builds and renovation projects and for both the installation of windows and before final fitting of a new patio or balcony door. This foam is also useful for making small improvements to a finished or an older building

Works on finished and unfinished surfaces

Window foam or construction foam is typically used to produce a water-tight seal during the fitting and installation of windows. In this way one always has a constant temperature in the room but also has control over the heating costs. A well-applied seal can help wood achieve better water resistance and thus hinder the effects of damp and ultimate rotting. Sealing is carried out during the installation of the window, and helps to seal the join between wall and window frame. Sealing of the door takes place in precisely the same way, whereby the foam is applied using a foam pistol and applied between the door frame and the masonry. The foam does not react to any given building material, although one should be careful not to apply it on the side of the wall that is exposed to sunlight as the foam can be damaged under the influence of UV-radiation.

For the DIY expert

Both in DIY stores and in on-line shops construction foam is frequently sold as a set, typically comprising 750 ml pistol foam, a cleaner and a foam pistol. These articles are available at low cost and allow any person with some DIY knowledge the ability to improve smaller areas requiring sealing. The foam can be applied to almost all surface materials, but will not adhere to silicon. Therefore, other materials must be chosen for use in conjunction with silicon. One should also note that construction foam actually spreads slightly when it hardens, and that one should not apply the foam too liberally to window or door frame. However, if too much foam has been applied, even this can be removed quickly and easily using the cleaner. If one observes all these points, nothing can possibly stand in the way of anyone successfully carrying out window insulation using window foam - ignoring for a moment the weight of the window. Even where the complete window installation should be left to an expert, the wide variety of window and construction foam products allow everyone to make an active contribution to better living conditions and to improved insulation; provided, of course, that the building material, regardless of whether wood or plaster, is treated with the appropriate foam.
