Benchmark Foam Certified Manufacturer of Direct to Deck EPS Roof Insulation
On July 1 2012, Benchmark Foam became a certified manufacturer for Direct to Deck roof insulation. The ICC-ES Evaluation Report ESR-3412 approves Benchmark Foam’s EPS expanded polystyrene roof insulation products to be applied directly over steel roof decks without a thermal barrier in the roof system; giving contractors and roofers added value with reduced material and labor costs.
Compared to alternative roof insulation, such as polyisocyanurate, Benchmark Foam’s EPS cost less per R-Value, which means you receive the same or better R-Value for less money. EPS also allows maximum design flexibility, including tapered boards, hips and valleys for proper water drainage.
Depending on project requirements, the EPS used in direct to deck can range in density and thickness, giving your end customers peace of mind with superior insulating power.
