Came across a nice little home today that had an enthusiastic do it yourselfer living in it apparently. Did most things okay, if not pretty.
One thing I am not sure about was that he had used the spray expandable foam stuff on most of the exterior wall outlets inside. From what I could see it looked like he sprayed it on the cover then installed it. Since there was seepage around the cover at the outlets on some.
So my question is - Is this acceptable? Is there a fire hazard with this foam? Obviously I cannot tell exactly what kind of foam he used. Tried to take a couple of the covers off and could not easily get them to come off, didn’t push far enough to cut them off. I have always told people to use the little foam gasket things.
