Pur and pir plates account for 60% of all insulation material sold in Belgium.
Between March and September 2017 a square metre of pur and pir plate insulation cost around 22.10 euro. Since then the price has fallen to a record low of 13.90 euro/m².
However, prices are not expected to fall any more. In fact industry observers predict a price increase from May as the price of MDI is set to rise by 8%.
Although insulation material has fallen in price this won’t make much difference to the total amount it costs to build a house, as you will still need to pay for labour and that constitutes the lion’s share of the cost of insulating a home.
