There are many ways to conserve energy in building structures today and one of the ways is spray foam insulation. Many people are using spray foam for various reasons but there is a certain way this must be applied not only for R values but also for life safety reasons. All spray foam products require an ignition barrier for fire whether it is mixed in the foam or applied afterwards.

Therefore an alteration permit is required for RESIDENTIAL & COMMERCIAL through Building & Development Services before any spray foam can be applied. This is as per Florida Building Code Section 2603 commercial and R316 residential. What will have to be provided at permit application will be 3 sets of the manufacturer specifications on the spray foam type which is being used.
