Spray foam insulation problems

4 years ago

The subcontractor who did our insulation during a new build missed some crucial areas that are now allowing hot air into the third floor. This is causing condensation on the HVAC ducts and a leaky cracked second floor ceiling. We now live in the house, and the GC wants the sub to come back and spray where the foam is missing. Obviously the walls are all sealed up and we have furniture. I’m also pregnant and don’t want that nasty stuff applied right now. We have had nothing but problems with this builder and I don’t trust the GC or the subs so I won’t be comfortable with the answer if I ask them this question: Is it an option to have the spots filled in with good old fashioned fiberglass insulation or something similar? HELP. This is one of about a dozen significant issues that I’m trying to deal with.
