Just like most of the insulating materials used to keep a house comfortable and safe, there is no fixed price for aerolite to be installed.

Thickness Requirement for Climatic Zones

You will also need to be compliant with the new sans 10400-xa building regulations that have now been implemented in South Africa.

Other factors to be considered are budget, cost and product type that you prefer. Your region might need a certain product with the required thickness according to the climate but you might desire a thicker product for an even better insulating effect, when you are adding insulation to an existing home.
