I have used this insulation on several projects
This 2 inch foam insulation has been used on several projects in the last 10 years. Last year I built a 6 ft by 9 ft temporary RV to use on a job, now I use it as a storage shed. This year I am building a 5 ft by 12 ft trailer and I'm using it again because it worded so well. Sadly the price has increased by about 33% from $32 to around $39 but still worth it to me.

I've used this product for several applications. In this case I have a room under our front porch, which is mostly underground; I want to turn it into a wine cellar. Doing this will help control the temperature enough to store wire, I hope. It won't be anything fancy, but I figured using this rigid insulation will not take up as much space & I don't need to build any kind of stud wall to install it. I am gluing it to the walls with a construction adhesive specifically for foam insulation. It does need to be clamped in place in order to the glue to hold the foam as I intended.
To cut the product I simply score it with a utility knife on both sides & snap it like dry wall. I routed out a channel for wiring, which worked well.

After researching the net for insulation not only for a crawl space and a basement I felt this would be the best product for the application. This was easy cutting this Formular 150 R-10 2" insulation in any dimension via a Olfa knife, circular saw and or a table saw. I completed most of my cuts prior to installation and installation was much easier and time efficient. I have already completed the installation 11/23/18 on the crawl space (encapsulated the crawl) and have already observed a savings in heating costs by 18% and the floors are much warmer by 8 degrees. I no longer smell the dank crawl space and the interior environment of the house has improved 100%. I am not encapsulating the basement; however, I will use this on all of the walls and fascia boards to effectively do the same as the crawl. I have calculated the return on investment at approximately 18 to 24 months. I would highly recommend this product and it definitely met my expectations.

I am re-insulating my attic by adding R-30 un-faced rolls perpendicular to the ceiling joists. I used the 2" foam to build an attic stairway insulated cover. I built a frame with hinges to attach it too - if I ever build another one, I may just glue the foam together w/o the frame to see if it will work by itself.

I'm so happy to see thicker versions of this product at my Home Depot! I use this stuff to air seal walls and ceiling spots. Cut to size and then seal in w/ my Great Stuff PRO gun. On brick walls I fill the void between brick and studs with ROXUL safe n sound and then seal the stud void w/ foam. This gives me a fire block, fills the void eliminating a home for bugs/critters, makes wall air/water tight. Also if you expose studs go ahead and treat them w/ borate to kill any termites that try to nibble on your framing..just paint the bottom 2-3ft w/ it.
This 2 inch variant of the Foamular translates to less cutting for me. It takes 3 inches to fill a 2x4 stud wall, I wish they sold the 3" thickness then I'd only have to cut one time. This does does dull utility knives quickly just a heads up buy an extra pack of blades.
Attached picture shows this product along with the other foam that has a radiant barrier. I use 2 layers of foamular along w/ the radiant barrier version in most areas.
