Where to buy Insulation


Hello,

I was wondering where can I purchase 2" Foil Faced Polyisocyanurate (Insulation foam board with foil face). Menards carries up to 1" thick, and can special order 2" thick sheets, but I need to order like 48 (4 pallets worth) or something like that with a special order through Menards. I only need 6. Home depot only carries up to 1/2, and Lowes only carries up to 1". I can not find anywhere that carries 2" thick. I am in the SW suburbs of Chicago.

Thanks in advance,
Steve

Around here the the drywall supply house sells insulation and there is also an insulation supply house.

Look up insulation in the phone book or online, probably find something nearby.

That thick isn't available at the big box here, but some of the more contractor oriented stores have it.

We get all our foam board type product from SPI, most batts come from the drywall supply.

Home Depot doesn't stock 2-inch, but you can order it on their website and pick it up at the store.
