Frequently Asked Questions

What is insulation facing?
When you’re looking into insulation products, you’ll find both faced and unfaced insulation. If an insulation product is faced, it has an additional layer of protection on one side that helps keep elements like heat and moisture at bay, which can cause costly damage to construction over time. If an insulation product is unfaced, it comes without the additional layer on one side.
Where in a building is extruded polystyrene foam board insulation normally used?
Extruded polystyrene foam board insulation is a popular choice for walls and below grade, such as foundation. It is used as building insulation, continuous insulation, and flat or foundation concrete. If you aren’t sure if extruded polystyrene foam board insulation is right for your project, contact our team today.
What are the R-values for extruded polystyrene foam board insulation?
XPS has an R-value of R-5 per inch. To determine how many inches of XPS you need to apply, it’s important to know the recommended R-value for your area. By following the R-value, you will effectively help prevent heat from transferring through. The higher the R-value, the more insulation will need to be applied.
In what geographies can extruded polystyrene foam board insulation be used?
No matter what geography your metal building project is located at in the United States, extruded polystyrene foam board insulation is a great choice for below grade and wall applications in steel construction, due to its high performance, cost-effectiveness, ease of installation and beyond. If you need help finding the right extruded polystyrene foam board insulation for your construction type, contact our team today.

Extruded Polystyrene Foam Board Insulation Benefits

Extruded polystyrene foam board insulation provides a number of benefits to metal buildings, including increased energy efficiency, ease of installation, and added strength.

Increase Energy Efficiency

Extruded polystyrene foam board insulation helps provide a continuous layer of thermal and moisture protection in metal building walls, which contributes to increased energy efficiency. It helps to reduce air movement through a wall, which can rob energy. It also assists with moisture management, both resisting water absorption and freeze/thaw cycles.

Lightweight and Easy to Install

Extruded polystyrene foam board insulation is preferred by contractors in all construction types and locations across the U.S. for its lightweight qualities and ease of installation. No matter if you’re using it for wall cavities or below grade, such as foundation, you will love the ease of installation with extruded polystyrene foam board insulation for your metal building application.

Added Strength, Without Facing

Due to its inherent physical properties, extruded polystyrene foam board insulation’s strength does not depend on the use of facers or laminates, which can sometimes be compromised during installation. Extruded polystyrene foam board insulation is able to add extra strength to metal buildings without the use of these additional layers.
