Anyone know roughly how many cans one would need for a standard window? Looking at replacing 13 windows in my house.

Bought this a few months back. Didn’t know it was a one time use. The foam solidifies in the straw so you can’t really use it again. Any tips on using the rest of the product in the bottle?

depends on the size of windows and gaps left after install. I'd cater 2 per window and maybe buy a a few extra.

Opportunity to price match at HD.

I've used all of these during a full home Reno. Regular is for less than 1" gaps and big gap filler is for anything larger. The foam is rigid when it cures.

The window and doors version when cured is much more soft, squishy, and flexible so use it anywhere you need to take contraction and expansion into account.

Not true, I opened one up last week and used it. Last night just shook the can and picked off the end of the tip like a scab (where it hardens) and then it worked like normal.

Never used this brand, but I used Lepage Quad Foam before and the straw can be rinsed out with acetone, even after it has dried and caked. Give it a try before throwing the can away.

EDIT: checked the msds for this stuff and it's polyurethane, which is the same as quad foam. Acetone should dissolve it. If you're looking for acetone, use your partner's nail polish remover.
