Solution: Barbara I saw a very interesting demo of FOAM. It came in a bag with 2 compartments separated with a thin "seal" in the middle of the bag. When the bag was squeezed the seal was broken and the FOAM began to activate! It's AMAZING that the foam was used for FENCE POSTS ~ I KNOW ~ strong enough to hold up fences?! Yes! I must add that it was 'the like concrete' formula and there are many versions. But $30,000 is so unreasonable ~ and ~ as they say, you can't take it with you... Somewhere I have a TUBE of 'instant foam' that comes like DAP does for a "caulking gun". I suspect if you bought a case of it the price would be quite reasonable... SO if you found a independent contractor willing to INJECT foam into the ceiling ~ perhaps that may be a answer for you? So a small hole is drilled UP from a closet or cupboard and foam is "injected" until it will take no more... Then move to the next hole and do it again until you have your own low-cost / lightweight version of insulation... of course I would never tell the neighbors how you solved your 'problem'! Also if there was a leak from a unit above, you could be fairly insulated from the overflow water too! BARBRA ~ it's so easy a GIRL can do it! See this YOUTUBE!
