Rigid Foam on attic floor?
 
I need extra insulation in my attic which is a cold space, I was thinking of putting down the rigid foam on the floor surfaces and screwing it into the sub floor to help boost the insulation. Does anyone know if this is a good option..

I must be covered with a proper thermal barrier in most cases and why use rigid foam where blown in cellulose would work just fine?

+1 with WOW...go with a blow-in or batt. product and you can cover it all with a tyvek like material (class III vapor retarder MAX.) to help mitigate air movement through the fibers. It is cheaper too!

1. Where are you located?

2. Is there HVAC in the attic?

3. Do you plan on storing household goods up there?
