CAN i PUT THIS ON MY SUNROOM FLOOR AND PUT CARPET OVER IT TO WALK ON ?

WHAT IS THE BEST INSULATION BOARD TO PUT DOWN THAT I CAN WALK ON ?
Asked by: MARTHA
You would need to put plywood overtop of the foam to prevent damage to the foam.

Can I use this to insulate the walls and ceiling of an enclosed trailer?

Asked by: dee
Yes, it is recommended that the foam is covered after installation. R-TECH contains a flame retardant; however, it should be considered combustible and should not be exposed to sources of ignition. Do not allow highly solvent extended mastics, coal-tar products or their vapors to come in contact with INSULFOAM R-TECH.

1-1/2 in. x 4 ft. x 8 ft. R-5.78 Rigid Foam Insulation is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Retch 1.5 inch perfect for garage doors This 1.5 inch polystyrene insulation is a perfect fit for newer non insulated metal garage doors. Way cheaper than the kits and looks great too. Just cut it with a razor knife and you're good to go.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great garage door insulation You can tell the sound difference with this insulation, the doors now sound solid when opening and closing. The 1.5 inch was the exact fit in thickness; I wish I would have done this sooner. I was surprised as how good it came out and how easy it was not to mention the ease of cutting the insulation with a regular sharp knife. (6) 4x8 sheets will insulate (1) 16x8 and (1) 7x8 doors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stuff...fun to work with I insulated my 6' X 12' enclosed cargo trailer every inch from top to bottom with this stuff, and was very impressed after I mounted a 5,000 BTU AC on the back door. It's like a walk-in cold storage freezer. lol The air condition unit now runs for approximately two minutes or less at every fifteen minute interval as opposed to nearly continuous 24/7. Sound proofing characteristics of this product are what I consider to be moderate to very good as well. As each panel went up I could notice the difference as it gradually eliminated an 'echo' throughout the trailer. Could not be happier. Excellent value per sheet. Fun to work with. I used a six inch 'utility scraper' razor blade to cut it up. :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice and thick, easy to handle. I am experiencing heat gain and excessive noise on the first floor which is emanating from tenants in the basement. Previously 1/2" rigid insulation was installed which did absolutely no good whatsoever, I could hear voices clearly and the first floor was now hotter than the second floor due to the heat rising from basement so I decided to try the thickest rigid insulation I could afford and re-do the entire basement ceiling again. These 1 1/2" sheets are lightweight and were easy for an old woman to cut and install. Does it do what it was intended for? I'm going to say yes because I like to think that after spending $200.00 for anything it works perfectly... but honestly, it's too soon to tell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for I got this to insulate my steel pole building. It went up easy and is very easy to handle. Much easier than rolled insulation and more durable, in my opinion. Used dry wall screws to attach it to the horizontal 2x6 supports. I used fender washers to prevent the screws from pulling through the insulation. I also was able to cut it to fit into the panels on the steel overhead door. Did not need to glue them in since the cross supports hold them in place so they kind of "free float" in that space. The only minor complaint is that when you cut it into small shapes, the plastic sheeting sometimes peels off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rigid foam is easy to cut on the table saw Rigid foam may not be too exciting, but I wanted to share, that it is very easy to cut on the table saw. I am always tempted to cut with a razor blade and snap, but the cut ends up a little rough. The entire sheet can be cut on the table saw much faster than with a knife and the cuts are perfect. I used this foam to insulate the narrow space on a custom pocket door wall. I have also used it in the past for insulating steel garage doors, when cut just a little larger, the panels will fit snug into the open spaces on the back of a steel garage door, adding good sound deadening and insulating properties. I have done this on 3 garage doors all with great success. The foam is so light, it doesn’t effect the door balance. Another great use, is as a backer for cutting a full sheet of plywood. It eliminates tear out and supports the sheet so you can push the circular saw across, while safely on the garage floor. Just let the blade cut into the foam.
