A: Hello Kenn, Please check with your local Home Depot for the services they offer. Thank you for your inquiry!
A: Hello Tedd, if wood battens are not being used under the OSB roof sheathing the roof would be an unventilated deck. You would want to check with your shingle manufacture to determine their ventilation requirements for their warranty. Thank you for your inquiry!
A: Hello phillythekid, if installing in a wall cavity that is 15" between studs the board would need to be trimmed to fit. Thank you for your inquiry!
A: Hello Dustin, Both the Foamular 150 and Foamular NGX 150 will have the same performance. The difference between the products is the Foamular NGX has a new blowing agent Foamular which delivers a 90% reduction to Global Warming Potential which became available January 1, 2021. Foamular NGX meet and exceed the hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) regulations taking effect in many states starting January 2021. Based on your location you may only be able to use Foamular NGX. Please see link below for the states that have the new regulations. https://dcpd6wotaa0mb.cloudfront.net/mdms/dms/EIS/10024430/NA-BLOWING-AGENT-REGULATORY-STATUS.pdf?v=1664973418000 Thank you for your inquiry!
A: I looked on the Owens Corning site. I could find no difference between the 2 products. They have all of the same technical specifications for both. I don't know why there are 2 different names for the the sheets. Both are XPS and are moisture resistant according to the site. I used them for the same application as you but don't remember which I used. Since they are now covered I can't see the label.
A: Foam insulation products can be used on wood, steel framing or concrete walls. FOAMULAR NGX resists moisture and retains R-value even after exposure to standing water and wet soil.This is the answer I found on the web
