Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer Great stuff
I used this product to make an enclosure box for my attic stairs. Just a little something to fit over the attic stairs when they are closed to prevent heat and cooling loss.
It worked perfectly. It's very easy to cut with a razor knife and a drywall square. It actually cuts very similar to drywall.
It does a great job at insulating too. I notice a huge difference in the surface temperature of my pull down attic stairs. Before when the attic stairs were closed the surface of the stair hatch was hot to the touch, now it is closer to room temperature. not to mention I have less air loss.
I will be using this more.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by chicagirl Great insulation for garage doors!
I ordered this online and it was ready for me at the store as soon as I placed the order. I cut it in front of the store to fit into my car. I placed some 3" x 12" foam board spacers to give the air space and placed the foil side towards the inside of the garage doors to reflect the heat.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by lporter134 Made a solar heater with it
Too many years ago Mother Earth magazine had an article describing how to make a solar powered window heater. We bought this stuff, some black paint and a pane of glass. We already had the duct tape and knife. Made the window heater as per instructions. Stuck it in an east facing window. It worked perfectly! That was when I lived in northern Louisiana.
Later, when I built a barn, I used it as insulation under the tin roof. Again, no complaints.
The backing makes it stronger than plain poly boards. Those things broke way too easy.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by girlwatcher1967 Rigid Insulation
I own a drywall construction business in Florida and this is a great product for use on concrete or c.m.u. walls. It is easy to cut and install and provides good insulation for exterior walls. It also has moisture protection qualities as well as sound deadening qualities. It works great in conjuntion with either 1x2 p.t. furring strips or 7/8" metal hat channels over top of the insulation allowing an air space and creating an overall 1-1/2' thickness to allow for standard electrical box installation on c.m.u. walls without having to break out the block for the boxes or e.m.t. conduit.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Soundman Works in a deep freezer's door.
I have a deep freezer out in the garage. The original insulation of the freezer door collected ice and the old inside hard plastic broke apart. I needed away to insulate the freezer door. Between my brother and I. We came up the idea to us a foam insulation board. So I got the insulation board and cut it to size to fit the inside of the door. Then I use the expanding foam around the edges of the insulation board. The expanding foam (when dried) will hold the insulation board in place and also seals out the moister between the insulation board and the freezer door.
It has been over a month now and I have no trouble with the foam insulation board in the freezer door. Also no sweating on the exterior side of the freezer door.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by wagmc easy to use
Several rooms of our 2-story house have walls that are exposed to attic space on the back side.
In several locations, the fiberglass batts had drooped from between the studs, leaving the backside of the drywall exposed to extreme hot and cold of the attic.
I used this product to provide a rigid support to hold the fiberglass in place between the studs, as well as adding an additional R-5 on the attic side of the wall.
It's easy to cut to end on studs or fit odd shapes with a household razor or sharp knife. I attached with roofing nails (with plastic washers) across the attic side of the studs. This product is lightweight, so few nails are needed.
Note: this product acts as a vapor barrier, which you don't want on the (cold) attic side of the wall. Don't seal the edges to make it airtight or you risk water condensing inside the wall cavity.
