Insulating Stud Cavities

Insulating stud cavities or any cavities needing insulation can be difficult to fill. Fiberglass, blown-in and spray foam seems to be high on everyone's list but really fall shorts in many ways. Rigid insulation like Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) by itself or in combination with other insulation may be the ticket, depending on the application. Remodelers will be the first to tell you that when they open up walls they see - fiberglass that is moldy and open, blown-in insulation that is settled down 2' from the top and spray foam that is cracked with bugs crawling through it. Polystyrene Insulating Panels (PIP) Packs may be a good solution in combination with other insulations. PIP Packs are EPS panels that are pre-cut to fit snuggly into opening like stud or furring cavities. PIP Packs can come with "ON Guard" insect protection that can help keep pest and bugs from entering a cavity. Learn More

PIP Pack Wall

PIP Packs can be used as a backer with compatible spray foams. Using EPS rigid insulation can reduce system costs in a spray foam application as the amount and spray foam thickness necessary to fill a cavity or meet r-value requirements can be reduced. Combining the stableness of EPS and the tightness of spray foam, one can create a very effective system.
