I am currently on a job where roof is being replaced > it is a large commercial shopping center. They are using a Carlisle rubber roof sytem and the dumster is full of foam board scrap,some pretty large. any reservations about using this stuff to insulate under a floor of a cabin?....Larry

hey larry...
could you find out the type and name of manufacturer to look up the specs?

especially if there would be contact to wet earth. would that product be suitable for that?

good luck.

No contact with wet earth.  Cabin is going up on reclaimed telephone poles so I have some storage area underneath.  Good idea on looking up specs. I fiquire I can use scrap over 15" and stuff them in between the floor joists ...larry

it will probably work. but i m not sure if they will fall out when the wood moves. and i imagine that there might be gaps with airflow.

have you thought about using a vapor barrier there?
