How much does it cost for spray foam insulation application or installation? Many homeowners are already well aware of the numerous benefits of spray foam insulation. This type of insulation is also known to increase the value of one’s home. It is a great investment that pays for itself over the years. However, it does cost quite a bit to install, or so they say.
The actual cost of spray foam insulation varies and it depends on several factors. There are two types of spray foam insulation – open-cell and closed-cell spray foam with open-cell spray foam insulation being the cheaper option at around 44 to 65 cents per board foot. Closed-cell spray foam insulation, on the other hand, costs around $1-$1.50. Of course, these prices change over the years and these costs are simply the actual material used.
Spray foam insulation installation is not a DIY job. Many times, we’ve seen even the smallest mistakes resulting in expensive and time-consuming problems. Hiring a professional spray foam contractor to do the job for you may bring you to a total cost of about $2,500 on average.
How Much Does It Cost for Spray Foam Insulation? Factors to Consider
When asking how much it costs for spray foam insulation, more often than not, it is best to reach out to a local contractor directly to get an estimate. Here are the usual factors considered to come up with a price.
Type of Spray Foam Insulation – As earlier mentioned, closed-cell spray foam insulation costs a bit more compared to open-cell spray foam.
Size of Area to Be Insulated – Since material costs are priced per square foot board, the size of the area that needs to be insulated greatly affects the total cost of the project.
Contractor of Choice – Contractors don’t usually have one standard price for all their services. Depending on the company you choose to hire, the total project cost may differ as well.

It's good to know that contractors don't have a price that fits all of their services. I think it's okay if they work case-by-case. They don't know what they might run into so each project is a different price.

I like how you mentioned that open-cell and closed-cell spray foam are the two types of spray foam insulation. My uncle mentioned to me last night that he is hoping to find a reliable residential spray foam insulation service for his home to protect his home from mold and mildew growth and asked me if I have any idea what is the best option to do. Thanks to this informative article and I'll be sure to tell him that he can consult a residential spray foam insulation service as they can answer all his inquiries.
Thanks for pointing out that the cost of spray foam installation would vary depending on many factors such as type of open or closed options. I guess we need to talk to professionals first to know what we need for residential spray foam insulation for our new home. We might also consider the climate we would usually have in this area which is quite a hilly neighborhood as well.

Thanks for helping me understand that the cost of the residential insulation installation will also factor in the size of the area since most materials will be priced per square foot board. I will share this information with my husband now that we plan to have this done to the house he inherited from his parents. It needs to be insulated in preparation for the summer season if we want to move into that place this year.

My sister has noticed that her home is a lot colder than it should be in the winter. She thinks that she is losing so much heat from a lack of insulation, but wants to stay within her budget. I'll be sure to tell her about how the cost of the project will be affected by the size of the area and which type of insulation she wants.
