radiant foil attic insulation (e-shield type products)

e-shield came out and gave us a $7,000 (!!!) price to do a 2,500
square foot house for insulating our attic roof.
this will take four men one and a half days. the material
is only about $160 per 1,000 sq feet.
this is RIDICULOUS! who will do it much cheaper but still
do a good job?

You can! Welcome to the forum! That's why we are here, and you too, I hope!

Hope you are in FL. And have insufficient insulation attic R-values for your location to warrant radiant.

YOU can do it far cheaper, provided that you are located in a climate that will benefit from
