Terms and Policies
Our Returns and Refunds Policy
Our policy is simple. You should never have to worry about receiving a defective Foam it Green® spray foam insulation kit. Here’s why:
Foam it Green® kits have a 99.9 % success rate and are 100% warranted against manufacturer defects. Manufacturer defects include kits with defective mechanical parts of the hose and gun assembly, bad valves, or missing components.
- If your Foam it Green® kit has a manufacturer defect, we’ll replace the defective item right away.
- If your Foam it Green® kit has a manufacturer defect requiring return, we will gladly refund your purchase, including shipping and return shipping, or ship you another at no additional charge to you. You choose.
If you have questions or issues with your purchase, you get our dedicated efforts to address them. We’ll always try to work through any issues and get the kit working without having to return it. This keeps the project on track and on schedule.
Your Foam it Green kit comes with easy to follow instructions and with 24/7 support. User errors happen when these instructions aren’t followed. User errors are not refundable. These include but aren’t limited to clogged guns, loss of pressure 1/2 way through the kit, etc. If you have any questions about how to get the most out of your purchase, please click here, email us at email@example.com or call 800-516-0949.
If you think you have a kit with a manufacturer’s mechanical defect, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 800-516-0949. You’ll receive our best efforts to get you up and running without having to return the product. Your project stays on track and you save lots of money and time. We will ask questions to help determine if it is a warranty over the phone or email to save you time.
If there is a claim of a manufacturer’s mechanical defect that cannot be identified or rectified without returning, you will receive an address to return the product to. These rare returns for apparent manufacturers’ defect must be returned at your expense, at least temporarily. Please note that defective kits will never make good, green foam.
Your purchase, along with shipping and return shipping will be refunded to you immediately if our Quality Control Department determines you received a kit with a manufacturer defect that could only be identified or rectified by returning. If the returned item is found either not defective or to need returning, you will not receive a refund for the product or for the shipping costs either way.
This warranty does not apply to a product that is damaged or altered through misuse, abuse, accident, neglect, modification or mishandling.
Please note that the coverage / yield of your Foam it Green® kit will vary depending on factors outside of the kit, including but not limited to surface temperature, chemical temperature, spray techniques, thickness of application, testing and troubleshooting. As such, the warranty ensures you get a working kit but cannot ensure a definitive coverage. To make sure you get the best out of your kit, please follow the instructions, stop if you think it’s not going as planned and ask us any questions. We’re 100% committed to helping you get outstanding results and the very most for your money.
Foam it Green® kits are 100% warranted against manufacturer’s mechanical defects for 13 months of the date stamped on the tank. Kits requiring return for manufacturer’s mechanical defects will be refunded, including shipping and return shipping, or we’ll ship you another at no charge if the kit is determined to have been defective. You’ll always receive our best efforts to work through the problems and get the kits working without having to return them.
That’s why we say our warranty is really simple. You should never have to worry about receiving a defective kit, and with this warranty, you don’t have to worry at all.

ANY CLAIM, DISPUTE, OR CONTROVERSY (WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT, OR OTHERWISE, WHETHER PRE-EXISTING, PRESENT OR FUTURE, AND INCLUDING STATUTORY, CONSUMER PROTECTION, COMMON LAW, INTENTIONAL TORT, INJUNCTIVE AND EQUITABLE CLAIMS) BETWEEN CUSTOMER AND GUARDIAN, its agents, employees, principals, successors, assigns, affiliates arising from or relating to this Agreement, its interpretation, or the breach, termination or validity thereof, the relationships which result from this Agreement (including, to the full extent permitted by applicable law, relationships with third parties who are not signatories to this Agreement), Guardian’s advertising, or any related purchase SHALL BE RESOLVED EXCLUSIVELY AND FINALLY BY BINDING ARBITRATION ADMINISTERED BY THE AMERICAN ARBITRATION ASSOCIATION (AAA). Arbitration proceedings shall be governed by this provision and the applicable procedures of AAA, including any applicable procedures for consumer-related disputes, in effect at the time the claim is filed. The parties agree that in any arbitration commenced under this Agreement: 1) any notice of the claim, or any initial pleading starting a proceeding to confirm an arbitration award, may be served on the other party by a) first class mail or commercial carrier, such as UPS, sent to the other party at its last known physical address, or b) electronic mail sent to the other party at its last-known email address, if a copy is also sent by first class mail or commercial carrier to the party at its last known physical address; and 2) any in-person hearing will be held exclusively in Lake County or Cook County, Illinois [unless one of the parties is a “Consumer Claimant”, that is an individual whose transaction with Guardian is intended for personal, family, or household use, in which case any in-person hearing will be held in a location mutually agreeable to the Consumer Claimant and Guardian or, in the event that agreement cannot be reached between the Consumer Claimant and Guardian on the location of the in-person hearing, then the arbitrator will decide the hearing’s location.] The parties agree to an arbitration on an individual basis.
