Pros and Cons of spray-on foam vs spray-on Celbar
Existing homes and buildings require different insulation needs.
Here are ideas to consider when choosing the right insulation for your home or business:
HVAC MODIFICATION – If you have a gas furnace you will have to modify the existing HVAC equipment to address combustion gas in your attic. (in/out take) ($1,000 – $2,000)
INSULATION REMOVAL – It is recommended to remove the existing insulation ($.80 – $1.45 per square foot). Have they included that in the bid?
FIRE/SMOKE PROTECTION – Foam insulation needs to be coated for fire – if it will be left exposed than all manufacturers require an ignition barrier or thermal barrier. Who will install this? Who will test the application? How do you know what the requirement is per scope of work? Is it included in the price?
LEAVING PREMISES FOR 24 HOURS – Did you know that you need to vacate the premises for 24 hours along with the pets? Pack your bags, no, you are not going on vacation.
