How to Choose A Spray Foam Insulation Rig | Intech

By Kevin Malone

There are several things you need to consider before you buy a spray foam insulation rig or spray foam insulation equipment. Some contractors have large businesses and work on mainly large projects. Others have small companies or are just starting out and work on small projects. By choosing equipment wisely, both can invest just the right amount of capital into equipment that will serve them well. These are some guidelines to follow when how choosing a spray foam insulation rig or spray foam insulation equipment.

Step 1: Set Your Budget

Figure out how much money you can spend without compromising your business's financial health. If you need new equipment but lack the total upfront cost, you can also take advantage of Intech's financing options. Check out our financing calculator to help you understand your payment options to get the best equipment possible.

Step 2: Consider Both Used and New Spray Foam Insulation Equipment

Used spray foam insulation equipment may be better for your bottom line. Many contractors buy dependable used equipment to conserve costs. Since used equipment has already depreciated, you do not pay the higher upfront cost you would pay with new equipment. We inspect and test all our used machines so you can be confident that you are getting a good, serviceable spray foam insulation rig. Overall, good-quality used spray foam insulation equipment can effectively supplement your rig and provide more options for your business.

New machines also offer advantages. Though they have a higher upfront cost, they include a warranty and there are usually more compatible parts and accessories available, which makes updates and repairs easier. If you are looking for the latest technology such as data reporting and remote operation functionality, then a new spray foam machine will be more compatible with your needs.

Step 3: Select Your Spray Foam Insulation Rig

Step 4: Tailor Your Spray Foam Insulation Equipment to Fit the Work You Do

Your equipment needs ultimately depend on the type of work you do. Whether it is slab jacking, roofing, residential insulation, or high volume commercial work, there are optimal equipment combinations that are perfect for your needs. To narrow your options while researching equipment choices, reflect on what has worked for you in the past and what is on your 'wish list'.
