Why Expensive Spray Foam Insulation is Worth the Price
When it comes to insulation for your home, the options can get confusing. There are many types of insulation and price points that make it challenging to figure out what you need. One type of insulation that is worth the price point is spray foam insulation. Not only does spray foam outperform other types in R-Value, air sealing, damage, resistance to mold and moisture, versatility, and durability, but with so many advantages over competitor products, spray foam is worth every penny!
Is Spray Foam Really Pricy?
Spray foam is expensive but worth the price. Spray insulation can last for decades and outperforms other insulation types in R-Value, durability, air sealing, and versatility.
The cost of spray foam may seem high at first glance because it’s a one-time expense; however, as time goes by, you’ll quickly realize that spray foam is worth the price. Spray insulation lasts for decades, unlike other types of insulation which can last only a few years at best.
Spray foam outperforms competitor products in R-Value and air sealing capabilities as well as versatility. Compared to fiberglass or cellulose, it costs less money and time to apply spray foam insulation.
Spray foam can be installed in hard-to-reach places, which is priceless when you have limited space and need to fill every inch of it with insulation. It is one of the best materials for insulating basements that are prone to flooding because it prevents moisture from entering your home’s walls and framing. It is ideal for insulating your garage to avoid cracks in the concrete and keep it warmer during wintertime.
A spray foam insulation kit can last up to 20 years, so even if you were only looking at one side of cost vs. price, the expensive insulation would still be worth it in the long run.

Spray foam is excellent for insulating your basement from water leaks because the material prevents moisture from getting into walls or frameworks.
For those who are in a humid climate, spray foam prevents mold from growing in the home. Spray Foam insulation performs better than other types of insulation when there is an extreme difference between indoor and outdoor temperatures.
Spray foam can be used for commercial or residential purposes because it provides excellent soundproofing as well!
How Is Spray Foam Priced?
