Understanding Costs vs. Savings of Spray Foam Insulation in Kansas City

Spray Foam Insulation Costs in Kansas City

When considering spray foam insulation, most people's first concern is cost. Spray foam insulation tends to be more expensive than other forms of insulation, such as fiberglass insulation, because of its higher quality, quantity, and labor. The higher cost may deter some people from choosing spray foam insulation, but what those people need to know is that spray foam insulation will actually save you money for years and years to come. Spray foam insulation is a long term investment in your home. The cost of spray foam is determined by a few variables such as:

  • Spray Foam Type: There are two types of spray foam insulation--closed cell and open cell. Closed cell is incredibly efficient insulation and only requires a thin layer of foam, but costs more. Open cell can be just as efficient with a thicker layer, and costs less. Discussing your options with one of our contractors will help you decide which option will be best for you.
  • Quantity of Spray Foam: Plainly stated, the more spray foam you need, the higher the cost. If you are insulating your whole home it may cost more than if you just insulate your garage. The cost will depend on the total square feet being insulated.
  • Labor: Unlike painting or other home projects, the application of spray foam insulation requires a certified professional. In any case, having a professional complete the task will provide you with peace of mind.

Spray Foam Insulation Savings in Kansas City

Spray foam insulation will provide you with a variety of benefits and savings. This type of insulation will provide you with lower energy costs. Because spray foam insulation is of a higher quality, it will do a better job keeping the cold out in the winter and the heat out in the summer. Your air conditioner or furnace will not have to work as hard to keep your home at a comfortable temperature. This also helps the environment, as well! An added benefit is sound control. Spray foam insulation adds another barrier to the outside, which can provide a noise cancelling advantage. Spray foam insulation also creates an airtight seal to keep moisture out. This can also keep out pests, as they have nothing to nest in.

Customer Service: Subcontractors Chance to Shine

After recently changing my cell phone provider it came to my attention how bad Customer Service is in most industries (including construction and with subcontractors). When I called my old cell phone company to find out what the buyout was on my cell phone, I was immediately transferred to a “retention specialist.” After several minutes of questions of why I wanted to cancel my service, I finally got a buyout number. I told the “specialist” that I understood he was doing his job, but he got quite pushy with me. The first thing that came to my mind was that if he was an employee of my mine he would be retrained or let go.

This got me thinking of how we handle our current and future customers. What are we doing right and what can we do to change to improve ourselves?

Spray Foam Education

After being in the spray foam insulation business for almost 10 years (completing thousands of projects in multiple states and under different code versions), I have come to learn that most of our customers we come in contact with have no idea regarding spray foam insulation. I’m not talking about spray foam just exists, but rather how it is installed, used correctly, and its benefits.

After answering more questions that I care to remember, I started speaking publicly about spray foam insulation and building science soon after I began in this business. Anytime a group, organization, or seminar would allow me to make a presentation I would. Now of course this was originally designed to further our marketing approach, but I quickly realized how little people knew about spray foam insulation. Many people had misconceptions about how spray foam would play into building science. Many people in the industry simply just didn’t (and still don’t) know their stuff and were constantly providing misinformation to clients.
