How to save on commercial construction costs with spray foam insulation
A common belief among building industry professionals is that spray foam insulation is a costly building material, particularly for use in commercial projects. Yet this misconception is far from reality as designers and builders can learn how to save on commercial construction costs with spray foam insulation by understanding where the savings can be made. With the performance and application advantages factored together with the installed per foot cost, it’s clear to see that closed cell spray foam insulation in continuous insulation applications is a better, cheaper and faster solution.
For example, a calculation of the total installed cost (per square foot) from R.S Means 2014 Building Construction Cost Data shows that there are significant savings to be made when using a premium product such as Icynene ProSeal in a continuous insulation application.
The total installed cost per square foot in a steel framing exterior wall using rigid XPS foam board has a total cost up to $29.31 while the use of Icynene closed cell spray foam in the same wall assembly is only $26.94.
The following video showcases how architects and builders of commercial projects can save on their commercial costs with spray foam insulation. Discover for yourself how you can save on your construction costs with Icynene closed cell spray foam.
