Nowadays, it’s possible to buy spray foam insulation and install it at home. However, is this a good idea? The Youtube video “DIY vs. Professional Spray Foam Insulation – Is It Worth It?” explores this debate so you can make an informed decision.
Let’s find out more!
Spray foam insulation businesses often get calls from clients who wonder if they should buy the kits available for sale instead of hiring someone. Hiring an expert can be hard for most budgets, so it’s understandable that people would want to save money by installing insulation on their own. Additionally, the marketing for these kits makes the whole process sound so easy and doable for anyone. However, is it really the correct choice?
Spray foam insulation involves two chemicals that need to be processed in a precise way. It’s more complicated than putting up drywall or painting by yourself. Experts really don’t understand why these kits have become so popular. Also, the cost of the kits per board foot, meaning the amount of material you’ll be able to use for your job, is often higher than if you hire a professional to do the entire job. For these reasons, it’s best to call a spray foam contractor, get their estimates, and compare.
