Iso-lated between a Rockwool and a hard place
I have been researching the pros and cons of polyisocyanurate and mineral wool insulation. I found an article in SBC magazine ( Structural Bulding Components). I have no idea whether this online site is quote worthy.
GBA and other contributors on this site had convinced me that mineral wool is much better for the environment than Polyisocyanurate.
Then I heard Michael Maines talk about the high embodied carbon in a talk he gave today. Now I question my choice. So I check out the GWP of mineral wool compared to Polyisocyanurate and I check out this article published online.
I live in Coastal California near LA but in a high fire zone. I would like to make an educated and well informed choice.
I’ve been dazed and confused.
