Polyiso Rigid Foam Insulation Supply Shortage

okapi222 | Posted in Green Products and Materials on

Recently it’s been very difficult to acquire polyiso rigid foam board. That is true especially in larger thickness. How have builders been responding to this shortage?

    I think we respond by waiting longer for our orders to show up. Project scheduling has been quite a bit more challenging this year with all the screwy supply shortages we've been seeing all over. I have noticed that even the reclaimers have been having a hard time getting product. Crazy times.

    Well, that explains why nobody's returning my calls trying to source polyiso for my house.... hope I can get some on before winter!

    I spoke with a representative at Rockwool today. They also have a 6 month wait period. Wow!
