? Insulation????

Guys I been looking around the board And in the gallery. Where is everyone getting the foam insulation from that's being used in the floors, and I seen one that had some on the ceiling in one bus that looked to be squares put together like a puzzle any belongs appreciated. I wanna insulate my floor for sure, I found the red rosin paper locally, even called lowes about the foam board but all they have is the ridged stuff.

Re: ? Insulation????

64, go to lowes and ask for foam core, it very flexible, its 1/4" but you can put it anywhere, its what they put behind vinyl siding...

How about pics and links?
http://www.homedepot.com/Building-Ma...atalogId=10053 listed on the website under "sheathings"


http://www.lowes.com/pd_15328-288-15...uantity_sold|1 under insulated sheathing R-Max has the most R-Value per inch thickness


http://www.homedepot.com/Building-Ma...atalogId=10053 Radient Barrier/Reflectix brand


When you compare insulation, you need to compare R-Value for the same thicknesses. And then you can compare costs.

R-Values for :
R-Max 1/2" = 3.2
Foamular (pink) 1/2" = 2.5
Dow (blue) 1/2" = 3.0
Perma R (white crap) 1/2" = 2.17
