Jim, The cost can vary depending on several factors. Access to the area,size and type of insulation,bungalow, two story, multi level, attic height, etc. Also, consider that there should be a vapour barrier, if one is not already there, and the installer should dress for the installation with a proper breathing mask and body coverage (like a light weight hooded cover-all). Best to "shop around" but advise your contact of the size and other items to be insulated.
