Marine Foamspray foam benefits

When it comes time to install flotation foam for your barge, boat, or dock, it may be difficult to determine whether to do the job yourself or to hire a professional flotation foam installer. Flotation foam installation may seem simple at first glance, but there are many factors to take into consideration to achieve the results you need.

Flotation Foam Installation is a Long-Term Investment

The first argument for a DIY approach is cost since there will be upfront savings by not having to pay a contractor to install your flotation foam.  BUT only if at least one of the following items are true.  A) You already own the two-part spray foam equipment.  B) Your project is large enough such that the purchase of the necessary spray foam equipment and miscellaneous additional support components will offset the cost of a professional installation. C) You intend to use the spray foam equipment for other flotation foam installations or for spray foam insulation projects.

Benefits of Professional Flotation Foam Installation

Less Downtime

DIY foam installation can be time-consuming. As an owner-operator of marine assets, you need the project to be completed as quickly as possible without diverting your time from other important projects or business.

Contractors have commercial-grade tools and experience that will enable them to complete the installation at a much faster pace. Not only does this save you or maintenance staff time, but a professional flotation foam installation can also get your assets back into service faster, reducing asset downtime.
