PU Foam Pricing / Opinions / LongTerm Experience

Postby oil » Sun Aug 09, 2015 12:11 pm

i am searching the board now for some extended time and i recall there was a thread somebody posting the prices per sqm for PU Foam for roof insulation those days, but i dont seem to find it.
I would appreciate it, if somebody could point me to the right direction / or just paste the current prices here.

On further Research so far i found that indeed PU foam seems to be the best room / subceling insulation,

crap, there they say 500-600 THB per sqm, is that your guys experience as well?

But while i was searching for the prices i basially came up with several not so nice articles concerning health effects of the PU foam, hence i was hoping one of you guys which got PU Foam since longer time could just post your long term experience / opinion about it

btw, here the articles i found

Check my threads on renovation of townhouse.
I recall some posts by myself and Fred in it with pricing.

Average off the top of my head is about 500 THB/sqmt.
I've used Lohr Trade on several projects and their service and guarantees are very good.
Good luck,
Luc

On health concerns, they apply to situations where you insulate the floor for example. It could over time see degassing through the floor into the living area.
If you are insulating your roof, and there's normal ventilation through the eaves, then you will have no issues at all.
