Homewyse cost estimates are approximate ranges for basic work in typical conditions. The estimates should only be used for preliminary planning. Homewyse estimates are NOT substitutes for quotes from qualified vendors. Homewyse strongly recommends that you contact reputable professionals for an accurate assessment of work required and costs for your project - before making any decisions or commitments.

  • Rigid Insulation cost estimates may require an onsite inspection. Usually these estimates will be "free". You should expect any estimate to be presented with an in-depth sales pitch/presentation.
  • The homewyse cost estimates include all typical costs for labor, supplies and tools required to unpackage, fit, attach/secure and edge seal insulation board.
  • The homewyse Rigid Insulation cost estimates do not include costs for removal of existing insulation or debris; modification or repair of existing structure or finish surfaces.
  • Low to High labor cost range differences are in part due to variations in work load, job location and seasonal wage rates.
  • The variation in installation costs for complex configurations (non-rectangular shape, many corners, multiple levels, etc.) can be considerable. For accurate cost estimates, collect detailed bids from several qualified professionals.
