Foam or Blown insulation
 
I live in a older home and would like to add foam or blown instulation.

Which is better?

Any suggestions on who to contact for a quote? I live in the Flint area.

"Better" in which Regard?
 
Foam will ALWAYS cost more and provide the LEAST return on investment.

Foam will take YEARS longer to pay off and to recoup money invested.

No brainer if cost is your bottom line: Blown never foam.

You may wish to go to contractortalk.com and search for foam insulation...there is a guy who specializes in the material and you might find the answers you are looking for there. I know there is a lot of debate on which is the best system, and closed cell foam prices are coming down...good luck.
