The reason that a homeowner spends the money to spray foam insulate a home is to increase comfort and decrease cooling costs. Good idea, but than to choke the duct work is to spend more money for less comfort!

  1. Great Catch,
    It doesn't surprise me to see this to many times contractors get in and out and don't think about these things.

Simple fix thought. Good job on your part to catch this for the buyer
