PLEASE NOTE!! The manufacturer that supplied us with poly-iso for years is no longer in Colorado. Though we continue to get the product, it isn't in the quantity we once had. Give us a ring, we'll do the best we can to get your porject done.
BEST 'R' VALUE 1/2 PRICE!
According to EPA’s ENERGY STAR® program, heating and cooling costs account for over half of the energy used in a home. As gas and electric bills continue to climb across the nation, consumers are looking for products and homes that offer superior energy efficiency. Poly Iso is the answer. 4x4 & 4x8 Bundles. NOW is the time to insulate!
4'x8' or 4'x4' rigid insulation
Poly-Iso Insulation has been available for many years, first as the most efficient flat roof heat barrier, then over the vaulted ceilings of log homes with exposed wood inside. Walk-in coolers are generally made of Poly Isocyanurate covered with a cleanable surface inside.
Remodelers can cover basement walls--firred out with a 2x4 or 2x2 to hold Poly-Iso against old concrete walls then surfaced with drywall, cheaply expanding energy efficient living space for homeowners.
Older homes with 2x4 wall studs can easily get a value of ‘R19’ between them with Poly-Iso insulation while fiberglass fails to get a legal ‘R’ value in 3.5 or 4 inches.
Builders are learning to apply Poly-Iso bonded to OSB for outside walls as well given wood only has an ‘R’ value of 1 per inch, rendering it a poor insulator. Whether new or re-siding your home a layer of Poly-Iso applied over the wall studs or roof rafters creates a “cocoon” for the residents inside.
Over the years we've learned that some folks need a higher 'R' value than the 4" provides so we are able to glue the product to your specs. We use a polyvinyl glue that we purchase in bulk and though we don't sell it, we do have the specs. The gluing process applies to any thickness. For example, we might not have 2" but we do have 1" in which case we can glue 2 - 1" pieces to get 2". We do need payment on the product before we start gluing,(we learned that the hard way!).

Have you ever noticed Pigeons gathered on a roof? Guaranteed it’s a poorly insulated roof. Pigeons will not perch on an insulated roof that keeps the heat IN the house. Observe the roof of a house after a heavy frost or light snow. On poorly insulated roofs, vertical lines will appear on the shingles directly over the rafters. That wood actually transfers enough heat to melt the ice and keep the Pigeons warm!! If a roof is overlaid with Poly-Iso attached to the OSB nailer, no such heat is lost. In warmer months, insulating works the opposite and blocks OUT the heat!!
Don’t wait for the first frost! INSULATE NOW! (and keep the Pigeons OFF your roof!)
Extras' Truck delivered poly-iso insulation attached to 7/16ths OSB, to a new home under construction near Santa Fe, NM. A cozy wrap covers all exposed wood before stucco is applied. The OSB attached Poly makes a good nailer for propane of shingle roofs as well.
Bundles are 4'x4'x4' or 4'x8'x4'. The number of sheets per bundle is determined by the thickness of the insulation,(1" insulation = 48
This rigid insulation, sold in 4x4 or 4x8 sheets has the highest 'R' Value on the market and can be used on roofs, in walls, as stability for retaining walls, with radiant heat flooring, as sound barrier, etc. Poly-Iso is available with OSB attached as Nailer and in Taper. We also glue the product for those folks requiring a higher 'R' Value.
