Process of Insulation Cost Estimate

Insulation Estimation Measure the Room

1. Measure the Room

To calculate the amount of insulation needed, we need to measure the dimensions of the room first. With the length and height of the room determined, we can now calculate the square footage of the room. The next step is to determine what type of insulation should be used as it comes in precut sizes. The exact amount of insulation needed will be determined after subtracting the doors, windows and all types of cavities.

Calculate the Amount of Rolls Insulation Estimation

2. Calculate the Amount of Rolls

After calculating the exact amount of insulation needed, we have to calculate the number of rolls needed. We have to make sure that the rolls come in with the size we calculated because every manufacturer has its dimensions. So the number of bundles will be calculated accordingly.

Insulation Estimation Software

3. Insulation Software

There is much software that automatically calculates the amount of insulation needed by submitting the project files. This can be done to double-check the manually calculated numbers.

Insulation Estimation and Costs

4. Insulation Estimation and Costs

The last step is to calculate the cost of insulation. Depending on the volume of work, a good number would be somewhere between $0.90 to $2.50 per SF. Keeping these numbers in mind, we can estimate the cost of insulation in a single-family home to a large industrial unit. These numbers completely depend on the R-value being proposed, wall cavities, type of insulation and room configuration.

Our process of Insulation Estimation

  • Project Overview

    The first step in any type of estimation is a detailed overview of the project and identifying the trades according to the scope of the project.

  • Importing to Bluebeam

    In the second step, the project is imported to Bluebeam Revu which is used to perform marking using flags. Marking is the most important part of any type of material takeoff. Accurate marking ensures accurate takeoffs.

  • Identify Insulation

    In the final step, Insulation has been identified on Bluebeam Revu and marking and flagging is performed which provides an accurate Insulation takeoff. The quantities obtained are put in an excel spreadsheet in an organized format for the client to understand and review. Pricing is calculated using RSMeans.
