Spray Foam Insulation Cost

Cost of Spray Foam Insulation

The average cost of spray foam insulation is about $2 per square foot. However, there are several factors that impact the cost of installing spray foam insulation. Use the list below to get a better understanding of how much your insulation project will cost.

1. Your geographic location. Where you live may can have a big impact on the cost of installing insulation. Prices are typically higher in large, metropolitan areas like New York or Los Angeles. To find estimated costs in your area, use ProMatcher’s Insulation Cost Report.

2. Amount of material needed. What is the total square footage of the area being sprayed? The contractor will base his quote on this number.

3. Where will the insulation be installed? Is the attic easily accessible? Spray foam can be applied directly to the roof deck and it can be sprayed into wall cavities. It is often cheaper to install insulation during new construction or during a major remodel, when walls are open and easy to access.

4. Closed cell vs. Open cell insulation. Open-cell spray foam is cheaper than than closed cell insulation. However, closed cell spray foam has a higher R-value and it is better equipped to handle moisture. To learn more about the difference between closed cell and open cell insulation, check out this article.

5. Removal of existing insulation. In many cases, the existing insulation must be removed before applying spray foam insulation. Your contractor should be familiar with local building codes. The removal and disposal of this insulation may add to the cost of your project.

6. Attic ventilation. Your attic must be properly ventilated before applying spray foam insulation. Venting the attic will increase the cost of insulation installation.

7. Cleanup. The cost of cleanup should be included in the contractor’s quote, but make sure to get it in writing.
