The Four Factors That Will Impact Your Quote
Four factors will affect the price you will pay for spray foam insulation. The cost is based on how much foam is used per square meter but is impacted primarily by the thickness used, the size of the area that is to be insulated, how the spray foam is installed, and the specific type of spray foam used. The thickness, area size, and installation method will differ from one job to another which makes it difficult to provide a blanket cost online without a site inspection.

The Different Types Of Spray Foam Insulation
There are two different types of spray foam insulation, one is called Open Cell and the other is known as Closed Cell. Open Cell spray foam is the ideal solution for insulating spaces such as a floor, wall, or loft. That is because the foam can encapsulate air and expand. Open Cell insulation is breathable, which will keep wood used in the construction of your home from rotting and developing into a structural problem. Closed Cell foam has a rigid and dense structure which results from the foam minimizing the air encased within its bubble. This makes Closed Cell insulation the best solution for structures with metal framing like boats and shipping containers.
Benefits Of Spray Foam Over Other Insulation Methods
There are four main benefits to using spray foam insulation over traditional insulating solutions. They include reducing air leakage, stopping the flow of air pollutants, providing a noise barrier, and preventing the need for replacement. Here is a closer look at each of those benefits:
Reducing Air Leakage
Gaps typically form when traditional insulation is installed. With spray foam insulation, there are no gaps as it will form a continuous air barrier between the inside of your home and the outside. Plus, as spray foam fills cracks and gaps in walls, there is no possibility of air leaks.
Stopping The Flow of Air Pollutants
Traditional forms of insulation such as fiberglass will break down over time. This can result in the development of mold and mildew in the walls of your home. Spray foam insulation is non-toxic during and after installation and will not break down over time. Plus. spray foam will reduce the amount of pollen, dust, and allergens in the air making your home a healthier environment.
Providing A Noise Barrier
Spray foam insulation creates a sound buffer that will reduce noise from outside of your home from leaking into the inside of your home. This makes spray foam a logical choice to insulate walls between rooms or in an apartment building. Other forms of insulation do not have this buffering quality.
Preventing The Need For Replacement
As mentioned, over time, fiberglass insulation will break down. This will eventually lead to the need for replacement. That will be an added cost not just to replace the insulation, but an increase in your utility bill may also result from the deterioration of fiberglass insulation. Spray foam will not break down nor will the insulating properties of this product be reduced over time.
The ROI For Spray Foam Insulation
We’ve indicated that spray foam insulation will cost you more than any other type of insulation. But, there is an important thing to consider and that is the return on investment. The moment you have spray foam installed in your home, you have made that property energy efficient. In any real estate market, that adds value to your home. As an example, spray foam insulation can add around 10,000 GBP in value. Plus, there are a lot of savings to realize with spray foam insulation. For example, you will save up to 50% on your monthly energy costs and the spray foam insulation installation will pay for itself anywhere between one and three years after it was installed. So, the cost of spray form insulation is a smart investment into your home.
The cost of spray foam insulation in your home will be based on four different factors. Three of them will vary from job to job where the fourth factor is related entirely to the type of spray foam used. There are two different types of spray foam and each is used for specific installations. Spray foam is a bit more costly in comparison to other forms of insulation, but spray foam outperforms the other insulation methods on many different accounts. From adding value to your home to paying for itself in a short time frame, you can’t go wrong with spray foam insulation.
