Professional or DIY Installation?
When deciding whether to do the job yourself (DIY) or hire a professional installation crew, remember that a professional job will typically be done in just a few hours. When doing self installation of spray foam, you must learn the techniques and rent the equipment yourself. It certainly can be done, but the money you save will be spent in time and effort.
What is a good Return on Investment?
In the financial world, a 6% return on your investment is considered historically normal. When you are considering improvements to your home, you should always examine whether or not the improvements will pay for themselves in either a higher home value or lower operating expenses.
Fortunately, adding insulation to your home can do both and give you a fabulous ROI at the same time.
