Proper training in Wall Spray is essential. Without training, it takes a long time to learn the process. Remember 1st impressions are the most lasting and Word Gets Around! Results of poor application will affect the contractor/builder relationship. An excellent job also gets around…and we all know how a few bad applications can ruin it for the rest of the insulation brotherhood.
