Most Lenders, will not lend money against a property with Spray Foam in situ in the loft space. This is because it can lead to damage to the timbers supporting the roof structure. Any damage that may occur, is unseen due to the covering of the Spray Foam. There is also concern that the timber’s ability to breathe is reduced, which lends itself to the process of becoming damaged. This is due to the spray foam insulation sealing the roof space and reducing air circulation to the roof timbers, which could lead to condensation and potential wood rot. And with the spray foam insulation setting hard and adding additional stresses onto the roof timbers, potentially causing distortions.We’d recommend against undertaking roof foam removal yourself. Not only could you damage tiles, electrics and other materials if you’re inexperienced, but some kinds of spray foam are toxic to touch or breathe in. On top of that, spray foam can get into all sorts of nooks and crevices, which makes it difficult to fully remove effectively. Using a professional gives you the best chance. Is it true that some lenders won’t give you a mortgage with spray foam insulation applied to the loft or roof? Closed cell spray foam can contribute towards condensation and damp, which can, in turn, cause your roof timbers to decay.
