Best Rigid Foam Insulation Value
Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) rigid insulation is the most cost effective and by far the best value for rigid foam insulation. EPS is clearly the lowest cost, R-value per board foot, both in flat and tapered roofing insulation boards. (See Graphs) Using EPS and reducing the cost of a building systems can help a contractor win more jobs. EPS is a great way to beat the competition and offer the best value to the building owner.
