Choosing The Right Insulation

Faced Insulation

Faced

Face insulation uses kraft paper vapor barrier to control moisture transmission between 
walls and floors 

*Check your local building code for requirements

Rolls Insulation

For roofing application, use Thermapink, extruded XPS (similar to Foamular)...comes in 1", 1½", 2", 3", 4" thicknesses, R5 per inch. Can use multiple layers to achieve desired R value.

Answer: 
This product is rated R-5 per inch of thickness, so you would need 6" of thickness to achieve R-30. However, according to the manufacturer, Foamular 150 is not intended for roofing insulation applications, if that's what you had in mind.

Yes absolutely sandable, unlike bead foam it does not break up when sanded. I creat stage props all the time from this but you must must must wear a good mask. There will be a fine dust you don't want to breath. I cut with a jig saw, or Lind blade box knife then sand by hand with a fine sand paper. Orbital sander also works but you need a light hand. You can easily and lightly sand of text for painting Read More

You can easily and lightly sand of text for painting and for durability I coast with a flexible coating such as flex coat or sculptor coat about $50 a gallon available at local theater supply stores or online at Rosebrand. It paints beautifully with acrylic or latex paints. Spray paint will melt uncoated foam. Read Less

Answer: 
This is not one of the recommended applications, but it would be possible to use Foamular to insulate your dog house if you wanted. It is typically recommended by residential bldg code that it is covered by a 15 min Thermal Barrier such as drywall or gypsum, but I do not believe there are any restrictions in regards to dog houses. Thank you for your inquiry!

There are no building codes governing the construction of dog houses, so why not? But seriously, this would be a good choice. It's lightweight, cuts easily and is impervious to water.

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 12 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product for DIY archery targets... Odd, I know, but get one 8'x4' sheet of this and cut it into 24"x16" sections at 2" thick, stack them into a wooden frame and compress with either ratchet straps or some sort of threaded rod on either side. Makes for an excellent 24"x24" faced target capable of handling broadheads for less than half the price of an 18"x18" Block classic target. Even better, when a section starts chunking, just loosen the compression and move a layer up or down. DIY archery target, works a treat, light weight, lasts a while and saves a fair amount of money. Mine has lasted 3 years of minor to moderate broadhead and field point use from a 50lb recurve before needing to have the layers rotated, totally serious. August 7, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Halloween Tombstones This stuff is great to make tombstones and a lot of other props out of for Halloween. With some research (YouTube, HalloweenForum, HauntForum, GarageOfEvil), time, and patience you can learn and practice techniques to make customized realistic looking props and tombstones cheaper and better looking than you can buy from stores. July 8, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great for carving/sculpting Great for carving - the thickness was a bit challenging but it's no issue if you have the right tools. Stands up very well to stress - including falling 30ft off a building - and is light enough to carry around easily, even if the full sheet is somewhat unwieldy. We used this to reconstruct part of the Parthenon frieze and I will definitely be making use of it in future projects. November 21, 2012
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Great product... Wanted to buy this sheathing as a base for model railroading. Excellent for that. Much denser than white foam. These panels are scored at 1/3 width, and 1/2 width. Only problem is the scoring is strangely jagged and at an angle to the face, and does not break clean, even when the scoring is enlarged with a knife. Would cut well with a circular saw, but I needed to cut it just to get it in my station wagon. June 9, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The Stuff to Use for Basements Although polyiso has slightly better thermal performance, XPS stands up better to moisture. Thus, XPS should be used for below-grade applications such as retrofitting insulation to basement walls (which is what I'm using the product for) due to the moisture contained in the concrete. I used a fine-toothed hand saw to cut the product to size, which worked well, with a minimum of mess. I just wish that Home Depot carried this product in the 1.5" thickness, because I'd also like to retrofit it between the studs of a 2x2 wall... October 30, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Used as hydronic floor heating underlayment I installed 2" thick Owens-Corning foamular sheets around the perimeter of and under my new pole barn prior to installing hydronic heating tube (PEX). I bought them in 4x8' sheets and they were pre-scored so they could be easily broken into 16" or 24" widths. They were also easy to cut to custom widths using a drywall knife - you only have to score them about 1/2" deep and they break easily along the score line. I also used my sabre saw to cut them using a knife-type blade. The material is light and easy to work with. My only beef would be the price. August 29, 2009
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fantastic results... I had two objectives... 1. Insulation 2. reduce noise for neighbors. I accomplished both. I used this 2" foam insulation in my 12 x 16 shop walls and ceiling. I then sealed any gaps with Great Stuff foam spray. The shop is now tight and can be heated with only a small ceramic 1500 watt heater. It's 28degress outside and I am able to be content in my shop. These panels were easy to score and snap to the appropriate size. Would highly recommend! December 30, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works like a charm I used this to make a 3' x 2' insulated box inside a closet to use as a fermentation chiller when fermenting beer. This box combined with 1 gallon of frozen water will hold at 60 degrees F for almost 24 hours. This is with an outside ambient temp of 78 degrees. The foam is light weight and easy to work with.
