Extruded Polystyrene Insulation

Extruded Polystyrene Insulation

R-VALUE: 40.0, SUITABLE FOR: new construction, retrofitTHERMAL PERFORMANCE: At R-3.5 per in., the cellulose in this system yields an overall value of R-40.PROS:• Familiar building process means lower labor costs with readily available materials.• If cellulose is used, the project has a lower environmental impact.• Large moisture-storage capacity allows wall cavities to dry gradually.CONS:• Fairly involved insulation process can add to labor costs.• Reduces interior space by 3%.

R-VALUE: 44.0, SUITABLE FOR: new construction.THERMAL PERFORMANCE: Insulated with cellulose: R-36.0. Insulated with high-performance fiberglass (R-4.5 per in.): R-44.0.PROS:• Optional 2x3 insulated wall and high-efficency fiberglass give potential for even higher R-values.• Large capacity for moisture storage allows the wall cavity to dry gradually.CONS:• Panels are often manufactured off site, trucked to site, and craned into place, which all add to cost.• Design may be subject to joist ...

Wahoo Walls is a basement finishing paneling system. It is water and fire resistant, supposedly has an insulation value of R13, and takes care of 4 of the most brutal steps of DIY basement finishing (framing, insulation, drywall hanging and mudding) in one step. It's paintable and doesn't have the ugly seams that many basement finishing systems do.
