We are often asked about pricing for spray foam insulation. In general, closed cell foam will cost more than open cell foam insulation. This is because of the more difficult spaces it is usually installed into such as basement areas and dormers. The time it takes to do these areas is greater, therefore the labor costs are greater.
Overall, the cost of spray foam insulation will be higher on day one than for blown in or batt insulation. Over the long run, however, the energy savings it provides gives it a quicker payback than the other options. This quicker payback means it will cost you less in the long run.
Builders are using spray foam more and more in their new construction projects. That is because it makes for a more comfortable home that their customers are happier with. Happy customers are what builders want for resale and for future projects.
