Are there concerns with having a fireplace in a home with spray foam insulation?
I'm building a home in southeast Alabama, and the general contractor mentioned that there are concerns about installing a fireplace in a home that is insulated with spray foam insulation. I haven't located any data on this topic; can anyone shed some light on this or point to a source for information?
