Spray foam insulation helps homeowners keep their homes warm in the winter and cool in the summer, while also reducing energy bills year-round.
There are two main types of spray foam insulation— open cell and closed cell. Generally, open cell spray foam is used above grade in residential applications (rooflines, attic floors, exterior walls, soundproofing). Closed cell is popular below grade in residential applications (crawl spaces, basements), and in commercial settings.
Many factors that go into the overall spray foam cost for your needs, but here’s an overview to help you get an idea of how much spray foam insulation costs and how to plan on this investment for your home or business needs.
The overall cost will depend on the type of spray foam product and the size of the structure among some other factors. For example: 3 bed/2 bath home averages $4,500 for installation and removal, while a 5 bed/3 bath home will average $7,000 for installation and removal. Larger custom homes can easily estimate in the $10,000-$12,000 range. Meanwhile, insulating metal buildings and barndominiums can often be more than the price of the metal building which comes as a sticker shock to some people. A 20’x20’ structure will average around $2,400 to apply spray foam insulation the wall and then and additional $2,500 for closed cell foam to be applied in the roofline.
Although it’s more expensive than traditional batt fiberglass insulation, spray foam provides one of the best insulating values per dollar spent of any type of insulation available today. When correctly applied and with regular maintenance, spray foam insulation provides a continuous air barrier and should last for the life of your home or approximately 80 to 100 years. Today more-so than ever, and because of things like HGTV, homebuyers are asking about spray foam due to its positive impact on their HERS ratings and how it will affect their future resale value. Whether you’re looking to increase your home’s R-value or reduce air leakage around your house, spray foam can help you save big money on utility bills over time as well as lower your carbon footprint.

The performance of insulation is measured by its R-value (heat resistance). The higher the R-value, the better the insulating properties of the material.

Understanding R-Values For starters, R-Value is the resistance value.
