There is a upgraded price difference on the cost of your new home but take into effect the overall savings from a sealed home you will be putting more dollars back into your pocket each month with foam.
Quick example: over 30 years on a $320,000 home the mortgage increases with the foam upgrade $37 a month when using a 30 years loan … but your monthly utility goes down by $100.
That’s $63 back in your pocket each month, that’s $756 a year.
In 30 years that’s $70,000 back in your pocket invested modestly at 6.5%.
I would rather pay 20% more for a car that cuts my gas expense in half!!!! Choose Foam!
