Rigid Foam Insulation for Northern Front Range Homes

Insulation Pros of Colorado are well versed in the art of home insulation services. Chief amongst them is rigid foam insulation, which offers a multitude of advantages to your home management.

Rigid foam insulation is an insulation type that has many inherent advantages. It is an energy-efficient way to construct your home as it provides a comfortable living environment and saves nature at the same time. Rigid foam insulation itself comes in different materials with slightly varying thermal properties. 

When you're constructing your own home or looking to remodel, make sure that insulating your home is at the top of your to-do list. Excellent rigid foam insulation can do wonders in reducing your energy bill. It also helps save the environment as fewer fossils are burnt to produce energy. 

Types of Rigid Foam Insulation

There are many types of rigid foam insulation material, but the most common ones include Polyisocyanurate (Polyiso), Extruded polystyrene (XPS), and Expanded Polystyrene. There's also mineral wool which is more environmentally friendly. However, it fails to act as an air barrier and generally costs more. 

The rigid foam insulation’s best performing material is Polyiso which has an R-value of 6.5 per inch. It is the highest R-value amongst rigid foam insulation materials, whereas XPS has an R-value of 5.9 and EPS with 5 per inch. Polyiso is an excellent material due to its flame-retardant capabilities and eco-friendly chemical makeup. It is, however, expensive and prone to moisture accumulation. 

EPS is one of the best rigid foam insulation types as it is inexpensive and can be used in closed corners. XPS, on the other hand, is used as concrete forms. Once the concrete cures, this rigid foam insulation prevents energy dissipation through the slab.
