Customer Questions & Answers

Can I use fiberglass on top of this and then sheetrock?

Can I use fiberglass on top of this and then sheetrock?
Asked by: Monica
Yes; in fact, this would be a typical installation for a basement wall. I would, however, use more than 1/2" if possible; 2" would be better. It also wouldn't hurt to tape the seams using house wrap tape.

Can I stack 10 of these to get R-30 in a 5" space? Or is there a more sensible way to accomplish this?

Asked by: space5
You can do this, although a more sensible way is to stack the 2"- and/or 1"-thick products. Or, depending on the application, closed-cell spray foam may be more cost-effective.

can shingles be installed over this?

Asked by: Harold
Foamular is not meant to act as a roof sheathing on which shingles can be installed. Foamular can be used in some roofing applications as an insulating material, but rarely on residential roofs. If you have specific design questions, please call 1-800-GET-PINK to speak with a product specialist. You may also contact a representative at your local Home Depot ProDesk and they will be happy to assist you. Or you can call 1-800-HOME-DEPOT (1-800-466-3337) and someone will be happy to assist you as well. Thank you for your inquiry!

can this be applied over asbestos siding before applying vinyl siding.

Asked by: suzie
We cannot recommend you install Foamular in a way that will disturb asbestos containing material. You may want to contact a building code inspector to see what they advise. You can also check with the EPA at https://www.epa.gov/asbestos/protect-your-family for their recommendations. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact a representative at your local Home Depot ProDesk and they will be happy to assist you. Or you can call 1-800-HOME-DEPOT (1-800-466-3337) and someone will be happy to assist you as well. Thank you for your inquiry!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Used for new application Used this to temporarily cover a hole in the ceiling while we wait for spring to do roof repairs. Board very light, easy to screw into studs, completely waterproof. Much easier to use than plywood or drywall and much sturdier than a plastic sheet! Also kept the room warm!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from foam sheeting I love this stuff, it has a great color! I love pink, but seriously, this stuff is as soothing to place against a wall as it is too look at! It seals perfectly, last forever, and is so cleanto work with. We love using this for all our insulating work, and prefer it for the price to the other options. We have a notable difference in the heating and cooling benifits it makes, and our lives are richer because of the clean and effective insulating factor it has.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great for a model railroad This insulation is great for a base for a model railroad. Make sure you pull the lamination sheet off first. That comes off easily. It is easy to work with and easy to cut.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Used for birthday party decorations I bought 3 of these sheets for my sons first birthday party! It was a jungle/safari themed and I sent them out to my friends bf to paint some animals. He did a mural/background typed n I used it as a backdrop for the chocolate fountain table.
