Here are examples of a few issues with the application of injection foam (spray foam applied directly into closed wall cavities of existing homes).  This customer removed their drywall about 3 weeks after the insulation was installed (because the area still felt very cold to him, for obvious reasons).

The last picture is a "test" cavity one of our engineers rigged up, to mimic some of his existing wall cavities (he removed the drywall covering this portion after 1 week's time).
