Customer reviews for 1/2 in. x 4 ft. x 8 ft. R-3.3 Foam Insulation

1/2 in. x 4 ft. x 8 ft. R-3.3 Foam Insulation

Make sure your next new construction or residing job not only looks good, but also provides comfort, value and energy efficiency when you include Super TUFF-R polyisocyanurate insulation. These days, all homes need a solid, continuous, water resistant layer of insulation under the exterior finish. If you have insulation between the studs, the wood framing can represent 25 percent of the surface area of a home’s walls – and act as a conduit for energy loss. By adding Super TUFF-R insulation to your walls, you can enjoy the value-added benefits of energy savings, an effective air barrier to cover cracks in old siding and around windows and doors, and a temperature-stabilizing effect in the stud cavity – reducing the potential for moisture accumulating inside walls due to condensation.

I have a board and batting building so I could not apply insulation to the outside of the building, so I applied it to the inside walls behind my Sheetrock.
this is a great product and very economical way to insulate your house. It is also very easy to work with.

Well .me being a divorced woman with a half finished house , I was at a loss as what to do to cover the beams in the walls and ceilings in half my house and then waaalaaa I go to the home depot website and there is my answer. no messing with rolled insulation, that i am allergic too. I hung these on the wall and ceiling, easy as pie to cut to fit. Now I am a proud divorcee that got the job done all by myself and saved tons of dollars. Thank you Home Depot for such an excellant website.

Polystyrene insulation is very easy to work with and install. I installed this in my basement for insulation and vapor barrier with Tyvek tape.

In my closet, the back wall of that closet was against my Farmer's porch. The closet was always cold. So I ripped out the drywall to find no insulation at all. In doing it better than code, I first put 2 coats of Kilz, Red Rosin paper, then this foam insulation. It was very easy to cut and install. Lined up great, and provided a very noticeable difference in the temperature of the closet. When you don't have space for regular insulation I would recommend using this.
Pros: Easy to Use, Easy to Install, Easy to Work With, Good Size & Weight, Light Weight

Polyisocyanurate not PolyStyrene!

Just wanted to mention that this is Polyisocyanurate (Polyiso) not polystyrene (XPS). Polyisocyanurate has the highest R value per inch (3.3) vs. Expanded PolyStyrene (XPS) (2.5). Polyisocyanurate also does not use an ozone depleting blowing agent so it is better for the environment if you're so inclined. This also has an aluminum backer per Dow's site (search for Tuff-R) so it is a moisture barrier as well. Using this in the garage against the part that touches the house as it makes a better air seal than drywall and also is a thermal/moisture break against the drywall/stud interface. I will use Tyvek tape on the seams and caulk the top to provide a good air seal as well. Cheap compared to the thicker stuff although it's main benefit is the air/moisture blocking as opposed to the R value.
Pros: Easy to Install, Seals Well, Great Value
