Green Building Q&A: Hi there, I am a general contractor with a long history of natural building.

I am currently on a design build project of a 1200 sq ft Net Zero Energy home in Santa Cruz, CA area. We are about to insulate with a closed cell foam product called Spraytite 178. i have been informed of the issue of soy and plant based foams vs. non soy based for a number of years and want the best product for my project/ customer. I am wondering if, in your opinion, there is a significant advantage to any other closed cell foam in my locally available market ? Thank you! Michele Landegger Boa Constructor Building and Design
