Many of the reasons EPS is suitable for roofs also apply to walls. An additional benefit in wall applications is the material does not sustain mold and mildew growth. Common EPS insulation wall applications include: cavity walls, interior walls, exterior sheathing, gable ends and within EIFS. In cavity walls, EPS products with factory-laminated, polymeric, metallic-reflective facers not only help shed water to reduce moisture buildup, but also boost the wall assembly’s R-value. To minimize labor requirements, building professionals can order EPS cavity wall insulation in job-specific thicknesses and pre-scored at any interval to accommodate brick wall ties.
