Foam insulation or roll

Unread postby ryemadd on Sun Apr 08, 2018 4:11 pm

Whats the majority opinion on the best insulation. I think im going with the styro foam. Thin stuff on the ceiling with thicker in the walls..well all the section of walls im working on. Is styro as good or better than roll or is it tge other way round. Thanks

yes, basically the same stuff but in a large kit. I think it's called a spray foam "froth" kit. I've never used it myself as the places I've foamed up here in cold country are way more that 200 sq ft. I get a commercial application company to come in and foam for me. best bang for the buck though.
