Easy to cut but hard to beat. Rigid foam can be cut quickly with a hand saw. Here it’s being used in Dr. Energy Saver’s SuperAttic system to convert an unfinished attic into a well-insulated space.
Today there are quite a few different kinds of insulation available. Among this variety of materials, rigid foam insulation has become very popular for its durability, high insulating value and other benefits as well.
Unlike fiberglass batt insulation, rigid foam boards never lose insulating value by settling or compressing.
Foam boards shed water instead of soaking it up like cellulose and fiberglass insulation do and foam insulation won’t support mould or provide a home for mice, insects and other pests.

Recognizing the critical role that rigid foam insulation plays in improving home energy performance, Dr. Energy Saver has developed its own brand of rigid foam insulation.
The first thing you notice about SilverGlo™ is that it looks different from other brands of rigid foam insulation. When SilverGlo™ boards are made, they are infused with graphite powder to improve insulating value.
Each board also has a reflective coating that acts as an effective radiant barrier. A 2-in.-thick board is rated at R-9, or R-11 if there’s an air space adjacent to the radiant barrier. Thicker boards are also available for applications where more R-value is required.
Silver Glo foam panels do an excellent job of insulating basement and crawl space walls.
Boards are easy to cut and install. Taping seams between boards creates an effective air barrier, providing yet another energy-saving feature.
Insulation plays a major role in improving home comfort and reducing the cost of heating and cooling.
SilverGlo™ is one of many different insulating and air-sealing products available from Island Basement Systems.
