Hi all,I am almost ready to insulate my bus it is a 79 h8h-649 with a 10 inch roof raise and I am in Va Beach Va.my problem is I can not find but 1 person here who will do the foam but he wants 2700.00 to do it which I think is way too much,I can get the 600 bd feet spray foam kits at 800.00 with shipping,2 kits 1600.00 and I can do 1 1/2'',the guy who quoted the 2700.00 (min price for him to do it) says that the kits will be a waste of time and money,any suggestions or replies welcome and very much appericated thanks Mike

I have heard a lot of estimates in the $3,000 area.

I had my 85 Eagle foamed 5 years ago for $1200.00  and it was an excellent job I did not have to trim but in a few places.  The guy really was good.

        I got 4104  done by Big Orange Foam in Knoxville TN. for under a thousand dollars including triming the foam and hauling away the scrap. They did a great job.

Talk to Bruce Knee of Diamond State Coach Conversions.
He's 2 hours north of Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel.
He can dial you in for under $1,000.oo most likely.
His guy sprays so that you have to do very little trimming...unless you have the time to trim (not!!)

Hi Mike,

No help on the insulation front

Sounds like your making some real progress.

You know I would like to see a few pictures of your project!  Hint! Grin Hint Grin

If I could have found someone to do it for around $1000 I would have had mine sprayed, I ended up with $550 in 2" all over.

I sprayed my own, 2 kits from McMaster, was super easy and works super well.  Nice thing about doing it yourself is you can do some now, some later.
