When it comes to insulating your home, we know how many options there are to choose from. Rigid foam insulation is one of those options. When most people think of insulation, they imagine fluffy materials, but rigid foam board insulation is a unique option that provides great durability.
Some homeowners or builders choose rigid foam insulation to insulate basements, crawl spaces, and attics. This type of insulation is effective and will help make your home more comfortable. The strength of the material is the main difference between traditional insulation and rigid foam insulation. Batt and blown insulation can shift out of place once it is installed, but rigid foam insulation will not. It is also resistant to water and pests, making it extra effective for crawl spaces and basements.
This kind of insulation also offers air barrier benefits, which happens when the boards are sealed at joints and edges with tape and spray foam. There are many different sizes of rigid foam panels, so make sure you’re thinking about the thickness and width of your panels. Rigid foam is easy to cut with a knife, and it is possible to saw it so that it can fit in unusually shaped areas. It can also be glued to surfaces by using caulk, adhesive, or spray foam if necessary.
There are several different times of rigid foam insulation, including polyisocyanurate, extruded polystyrene, and expanded polystyrene, so make sure you choose wisely so that your insulation is as effective as possible.
