One of the most important parts of home renovation is finding the right foam for your project. It can be a tough task, especially if you don’t know what to look for in a good quality foam product. I’ll walk you through how to identify different types of foam and how you can use them in your home.

Section: What is foam?

Foam is a type of material that can be used to make many different things, including furniture and insulation. Foam can be made from many different materials, but the most common foam is made from polyurethane or polystyrene. These materials are mixed with other chemicals and heated together to form the substance known as “expanded” or “extruded” foam. The term expanded means that air has been pumped into the substance until it has become porous enough for you to be able to see through it like you would see through glass.

Expanded foam will have millions of tiny bubbles filled with air which makes it flexible yet firm enough for use in construction projects such as filling holes in walls before painting them or using it as an insulator between walls so that your house does not lose heat during winter months.
