Rigid Foam Board Insulation Installation in San Antonio, TX

Rigid foam board is a form of insulation made up of plastic foam in panels that can be cut to fit various sizes or used whole. Most commonly, you’ll see this insulation as 2×8 or 4×8 panels, but there’s a wide selection of products with different measurements, thicknesses, etc.

Rigid foam board refers most commonly to these materials:

  • Polyisocyanurate rigid board insulation has a reflective foil on either side, which allows it to reflect sunlight and the associated radiation and heat away from a building when installed in the attic.
  • Extruded polystyrene rigid board panels have smooth plastic surfaces and are exceptionally rugged, allowing them to be used where wear and tear might be a factor
  • Expanded polystyrene rigid board insulation is a versatile material with a high R-value relative to its cost, ideal for new construction projects and re-insulating because it doesn’t degrade over time

Common Applications for Rigid Foam Board Insulation

Rigid foam board insulation is mostly used in new construction projects, as it offers exceptional value and ease of installation on a new building but can be difficult to implement into existing homes or businesses unless you’re already doing massive renovations.

Rigid foam board is of particular use in creating reliable seals against heat transfer, air transfer, and moisture transfer anywhere you can actually install the fixed panels quickly.

This means the open interior of a wall, but also as a backing material for cinder block construction and for the outside of refrigerated or precisely climate-controlled spaces like a commercial freezer or server room.

Benefits of Rigid Foam Board Insulation

Proper use of rigid foam board insulation in a building, whether commercial or residential, new construction or retrofit, can bring about several benefits:

  • Reduced utility bills by minimizing heat and air transfer through protected surfaces
  • Improved comfort and consistency of temperature and humidity in protected spaces
  • Minimized noise transfer through insulated areas, including into and out of specific rooms with interior walls insulated
  • Enhanced performance of high-efficiency HVAC equipment, including indoor air quality systems
  • Healthier environments with fewer contaminants from outside, mold growth due to moisture, etc.
