I'm glad this topic came up, but I have a different question.
I have a set of stairs that lead from my main level up to a master
suite in an old, converted attic space. The stairs lie directly above
the stairs that lead from the main level down into the basement.
Naturally, the stairs going up to the suite stay rather cold in the
winter. I'm wanting to insulate them from the underneath, but I don't
have any room (a thick layer of rolled fiberglass insulation would
greatly reduce the already tight space below).
What would you recommend as a foam sheet to insulate that area? I'm
thinking of the sheeting that is applied to the exterior of new
construction before the siding is added, but I don't know what rating
Thanks for your advice!
