foam runs approx $1/foot inch from a foam contractor and about $2.00/foot inch when you buy the canisters and do it yourself.

DIY is more expensive?

Are you saying it would probably cost less to hire someone than doing it yourself? Do you know of a less expensive (than Tiger/etc.) supplier?

thank you.

Depending on the size of the job - There is no probably about it, its almost a certainity & you will get a better finish from the pro then you can hope to accomplish with a DIY pack or 3

we just recently finished a 4000 commercial space that was icf built. the original plan was to spray foam the entire attic space but opted just to put a 1" coating on top of the ceiling drywall to create an air seal then do 14" of blown in for the rest of it. saved $12,000
