I didn’t believe it was the same cost as framing and insulation, so I had to figure out the framing and insulation myself. It was virtually the same. I ordered the InSoFast had it shipped directly to my home. I didn’t have to make multiple trips to the lumber yard or worry about loading framing lumber in my vehicle. By myself it took about 6 to 8 hrs to install the panels. InSoFast is an awesome product!
