Just wondering what labour price should be for installing batt insulation in a house in Calgary
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.
Basic insulation goes like this.if you hire a drywall company.
Labor for batt and poly is around ,50c sqft of wall or ceiling.
Supplies bat, you need to look at the manufacturer specification for coverage and pricing.
And in average size job you add 200$ for acoustic sealant and vapor dicktape.
