FOAMULAR is the easy-to-install insulating solution for basement walls. Get added comfort with PINK Fiberglas insulation and finish with drywall board.
FOAMULAR is ideal for insulating exterior foundation walls. Extremely durable, it can withstand up to 15-25 psi and resists common acid soils and decay.
FOAMULAR provides a higher R-value per inch than other materials commonly used for exterior wall sheathing.
FOAMULAR Fanfold is generally intended for use as a backer board for residing applications and comes in 50-foot sections for a faster install.
Virtually impervious to moisture. FOAMULAR has up to 10X more resistance to water than EPS insulation.
A wide range of compressive strengths –up to 100 psi – to handle heavy loads.
Easy to handle, score, cut and install; no special tools needed.
High, stable R-value (5 per inch of product thickness) - more than wood fiber, plywood or 1/2” gypsum board.
Foamular is certified to meet indoor air quality standards under the stringent GREENGUARD Gold Certification Program.
The only XPS with a limited lifetime warranty that guarantees a minimum 90% of R-value for the life of the product.
Dear Troy: Yes, although polyisocyanurate foam board will be more effective in this temperature range. See: DOW Super Tuff-R Model # 99060464, Internet #300528092, Store SKU #1002215973 Also carefully seal all of the joints and edges to block air leaks. DAP 230 or HVAC mastic work well on joints and small gaps. Use the 'Window and Door' version of Great Stuff spray foam for larger gaps. Then install 1/2" drywall over the foam board as your new ceiling surface. (This is also required; foam board is flammable and must be covered with an approved 'thermal shield' in any living space. The standard is 1/2" drywall.) If you live in an area with hot summers and/or cold winters, it would also be a good idea to start by filling the joist bays with rock wool before you install the foam board. Rock wool is much denser than fiberglass and delivers R-4.1 per inch of thickness. Versions are available to match 6" or 8" joists. For example see: Owens Corning Thermafiber Model # UB-40-P5D-15--47--121, Internet #303425926, Store SKU #1002951851. Hold the batts in the joist bays with Simpson insulation wire, which is available for 16" and 24" joist spacing. See: Simpson Model # IS16-R100, Internet #100375163, Store SKU #594333 Then install the foam board. I hope this is helpful. Mark
Hello HomeDepotUser, you will want to use an adhesive that is compatible with Extruded Polystyrene. Most brand named construction adhesives have an adhesive that is compatible with Extruded Polystyrene. Foamular products are combustible and needs to be covered by a 15 minute thermal barrier such as drywall.
Hi Abc, the maximum operating temperature of our Foamular products is 165 degrees Fahrenheit. Thank you for your inquiry!
Hello, hi! Thank you for your recent inquiry with The Home Depot. As thisInsulation Sheathing is only carried in select Home Depot stores and not online, you will need to contact your local Home Depot Store for stock availability and pricing. We appreciate your business and look forward to serving you in the future. Thank you for shopping Home Depot.
Yes. You can glue layers of Foamular together. Please use a glue compatible with Polystyrene. Thank you!
Unfortunately, I am unable to arrange for specific quantities to be available at any given location. Many items in the Owens Corning catalog are only available to order in minimum quantities. I would advise checking with other suppliers and contractors in your area to see if they have the amount you need.

You may also contact a representative at your local Home Depot ProDesk and they will be happy to assist you.

Hi Rob, the install instructions do not list a screw for concrete. The instruction list Owens Corning Joint Seal R foam joint tape. You can also use construction adhesive made compatible with polystyrene or foamed plastics. Check out the link below. http://www.homedepot.com/catalog/pdfImages/28/28d54476-493f-486f-b233-485218b05622.pdf
i contacted the representative at my local home depot pro desk. They did not have a clue as to what i was asking for. They finally had to call owens corning directly. i need 10 sheets for one wall in my basement. owens corning will only ship a quantity of 128 sheets or more. What good is it having a user friendly product if you cannot buy it.
Do you currently have any insulation above the paneling? If code recommends R-13, I'm just wondering how you will achieve that. Foamular is required by code to be covered by a 15 min thermal barrier, such as drywall, as you mentioned, however there may be a more economical and less labor intensive option in which you may receive better thermal results. Depending on what you currently have above the drop ceiling, if anything at all, it may be a better option to just remove the paneling and fill the cavities between the ceiling/floor joists with an Unfaced fiberglass insulation if feasible. Unfortunately it is difficult for me to give you best options without being able to physically see the room. If you are not familiar with this type of situation, I strongly recommend contacting a local contractor who can physically assess your situation in order to advise you on the best option for your scenario. I also suggest you follow local code requirements for your region. 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 a someone will be happy to assist you as well. Thank you for your inquiry!
I noticed that as well. Actually, what I've noticed is that each foam board is different. No 2 seem to be alike except for that, as you point out, none of them work with a piece of 1x3. If your covering it with plywood (like in a basement workshop) you will be fine, but if your installing drywall over it, you may need to do some creative and extensive shimming. My local lumber yard sells something they cal "Super Boards" All it is, is a piece of 1x that is only dressed on 3 sides, with one side still rough. This results in a board that measures 7/8". That extra 1/8" might be just enough. The down side is they only come in 1x6 or wider, so you will have to rip them.
