Roofing

With a broad range of insulation types available, it’s easier than ever for contractors to construct an energy efficient roof system.  Insulfoam EPS (Expanded Polystyrene) rigid foam insulation has been used for decades by smart industry professionals looking to achieve high thermal properties for a cost-effective price in a wide range of projects (commercial, institutional, residential).  The benefit of lightweight EPS goes far beyond price, since it also helps decrease material and labor expenses.  And, unlike other rigid insulations, your roof insulation will remain stable, as Insulfoam R-Values don’t drift or fade over time.  Backed with a 20-year thermal performance warranty, you can be confident that Insulfoam’s EPS products are the best option for your project.  Learn more about Insulfoam roofing applications and product information.

Tapered panels were used to increase roof slope for additional drainage, while offering a long-term, stable R-Value, excellent dimensional stability, compressive strength and water resistant properties that meet or exceed the requirements of ASTM C578.
