Question DetailsAsked on 1/14/2016

In measuring for insulation how is depth figured? Please give me an example for 500 sq ft.

you have a special for 500 sq ft of insulation. How is this calculated? 10x50 is 500 sq ft. But, what of depth? Or how many cubic ft are they talking about?

Do you have the same question? Follow this Question

Sounds like you are talking about a specific Deal - so you would have to contact the vendor about that, and of course get it clarified in writing if you contract with them.

If talking foam-in-place insulation, that is usually priced by the board foot (defined as a square foot an inch thick) so instead of 500 SF probably should have read 500BF = 500 SF an inch thick, or 250 SF two inches thick, 100 SF 5 inches thick, etc.

The question refers to cellulose blown in insulation.

Without a thickness specified, or a rated insulation "R" value, you would have no way of what you are getting.
