InsulPink


Anyone ever work with Owens Corning InsulPink rigid foam? Just looking at it as an option for my basement walls that have absolutly no insulation right now ugh... the stuff is pretty cheap at $8 a board... 24" OC furring strip ridges... R-7.5... (I know its not R-10 but anything is better then R-0 at this point *LOL*) figured putting that then drywalling over it would give me about R-8.5... any opinnions on this stuff? thanks

Not enough insulation to make this a legal project in your area. Also best to have an air space between the wall and the studs. 2" is a minimum thickness to get you the capillary break you need to prevent condensation on the outside wall.

Our lowes has this in 1.5" and 2" insulation... 2" is R-10... was just a little concerned about where it's only 1" thick where the furring strips would go... but if that still is a problem, might as well cough up for the XPS 2" and frame it out

btw.. what kind of adhesive is best for this to the cinder blocks?

InsulPink


Check with the manufacturer's site for the insulation you use. Needs to be compatible. But normally PL400 or any construction glue will do fine. Tape the seams. Seal all edges and gaps with spray foam. Use sill insulation and under the pressure treated sole plate.
