Rigid Board Insulation Installation in the Houston, TX Area

Like it sounds, rigid board insulation is available as a foam panel that can be cut. The sizes most often used are 2 x 8 feet and 4 x 8 feet, but the panels vary in thickness and width. Rigid foam insulation is mainly used for new construction projects, and in our experience, it is a great solution for insulating homes and buildings and maximizing energy efficiency.

There are three types of rigid foam board:

  • Polyisocyanurate (polyiso): polyisocyanurate rigid board insulation typically comes with reflective foil facing on both sides. This makes it ideal for the attic, as the foil helps your home reflect, rather than absorb the sun’s energy.
  • Extruded polystyrene (XPS): extruded polystyrene rigid board panels have smooth, plastic surfaces and are extremely durable.
  • Expanded polystyrene (EPS): EPS rigid board insulation can be used for both new construction projects and re-insulating.

Rigid foam insulation can help:

  • Reduce your utility bills and maximize the energy efficiency of your home or building
  • Make your home or building more comfortable year round
  • Reduce noises from outside and also from inside your home or building between different rooms and levels
  • Improve the performance of your air conditioner and furnace
  • Contribute to a healthier environment

New Construction

The IBP Houston team uses rigid board insulation in new construction projects. We have experience with both commercial and residential projects and can install rigid foam insulation in walls, attics and crawl spaces.

Foam Board Insulation R-Value

Rigid foam insulation R-values range from R-4 to R-6.5 per inch of thickness, which is greater than many other insulating materials of the same thickness. This type of of insulation is effective at providing thermal resistance. What’s the foam board insulation R-value for the Houston area? Houston is in zone 2, which means R30 to R60 for attics and R13 to R15 for wall cavities. Learn more on energy.gov »
