# 4.3.9 Decision Time

## Step 4: Interpret the Answer

Now you can help me make an informed decision.

### Activity: Contractor or DIY?

Should I hire the contractor and use the grant for placing the insulation in the attic, or should I do it myself?

#### Comment

Compare the costs for each option.

The cost of using the contractor is $250, after the grant is applied. The price of installing the insulation myself is$171. So, just based on these values, I might choose the DIY option.
