Polystyrene Insulation

Polystyrene insulation is used for insulating homes and properties. It is essential in ensuring that the building preserves as much energy as possible. Polystyrene is a popular choice due to how it offers excellent thermal insulating properties whilst being unaffected to moisture. It has a rigid nature and is also very lightweight, so creates an insulation that is easy to work with. Furthermore, the boards are easy to cut, drill holes into, and install.

There are various places around your property or home to use polystyrene insulation boards, including walls, flooring, and under concrete. Flooring is a rigid form of insulation, so using polystyrene in flooring is great for noise reduction. As for under concrete, expanded polystyrene sheets (ESP) are the most used choice because of its rigid boards, which offer very good durability and help increase thermal performance.
