RMAX Helps You Steer Clear of Floor Insulation Issues

Rmax insulation helps you overcome typical floor insulation issues that cause substantial loss of heat and might lead to expensive repairs. This includes buckling, crowning, and cupping. Some insulation materials lead to the formation of washboards—uneven surfaces across the width of the flooring material. Here, the edges seem higher and the center tends to sink.

A floor insulation material without the required degree of structural strength often leads to ballooning of the floor. This is also called Buckling—an issue you will not face with RMAX insulation. This also helps to prevent squeaky or noisy floors. A good insulation option like RMAX helps to neutralize issues like moisture seeping in that is often the result of internal condensation.

    Re: RMax 2in x 4ft x 8ft Polyiso Rigid Foam Insulation Board Thermasheath 3 (24 Sheets)

    Can I use this product under a concrete slab in a garage? If so, I would need approx 10 bundles (need 230 sheets). What would be the shipping charge to Maine (04055)?

    I have a cement slab floor cottage with flooring atop 2x6 existing frame. What is best way to insulate between floor joists and what are moisture barrier requirements and product reccomendations?

    • Johnpaul

      Hi Wayne,

      What I would do would be install Rmax insulation between the joists by cutting the sheets with a utility knife or saw to fit between the joists. Try get a nice tight fit at the sides and joints to ensure as little air leakage as possible caused by gaps. If possible you should install an Insulation Fabric on the underside of the joists to prevent the insulation from falling down but to also control the airflow coming from the underside of the space between the floor and the joists. This fabric will also prevent unnecessary gust of air through any imperfections between the insulation and joists.

      The thickness of Rmax Thermasheath-3 that you use is up you. Obviously the thicker you go with the better the insulation r-value.

    we have a room 12'X28' with a shallow crawl space (8"). The floor is very cold in the winter.I'm thinking about putting 2 inch thick insulation on top of current floor and overlaying it with 1/2" or 3/4" plywood to protect the insulation. I live near Harrisburg, PA. Your thoughts and suggestions will be appreciated. Gene

    Would the above keep the floor warm in the winter? Do you have a better idea? Thank you and please advise.

    • Johnpaul

      Hi Gene,

      Typically, this type of insulation is not designed for that type of application. However, I do think it would work but you would need to be careful on point loading the floor in areas. This insulation is designed to have an even distribution of weight across its entirety and just laying plywood over it may cause issues over time. I would suggest that if you want to do that to fix 2x2 timber battens to the floor at 16" centres and then cut your insulation to fit in between the battens then lay your plywood on top of the battens and screw down.

      This to me would be the best alternative. I hope this helps.
