Insulating Walls with Foam
So, can foam insulation be installed in existing walls? Yes, it can, depending on the type of foam. Rigid foam, or foam board, is typically installed during new construction projects, in unfinished walls. However, spray foam and foam-in-place insulation can be installed in enclosed, existing walls. It is applied using small spray containers or in larger quantities as a pressure sprayed (foamed-in-place) product and will expand and harden.
