DOW Styrofoam

Discovered in 1941, Styrofoam Brand Insulation has since been a favorite in building construction. Styrofoam insulation boards offer superior insulation, meeting core thermal, air, moisture, and vapor requirements through its unique construction. Zeeland Lumber & Supply is glad to bring this innovative solution to our clients in the construction industry.

Benefits of Styrofoam Brand Products

Styrofoam Brand offers a number of products suited to a variety of different building applications. Though each product solves a different construction challenge, all Styrofoam Brand products provide similar benefits, making the brand a top name in the industry. Here are just a few of the reasons our clients are always asking for Styrofoam Brand rigid foam board insulation:

Insulating Power

Styrofoam Brand products are made from closed-cell foam, where bubbles within the foam are completely separated from each other and totally enclosed. This construction ensures that moisture and air is unable to flow from one cell to another, making it an exceptional insulator. Styrofoam Brand products’ unique construction offers a very high R-Value for any building project, with little to no insulating loss over time.

Moisture Resistance

Styrofoam Brand’s unique construction means it does not allow for moisture penetration. Closed cells don’t allow water to transfer through the insulation, meaning this is an exceptional product for any home or building, and especially those in high-risk areas for severe weather and wet climates that are prone to mold. 


Styrofoam Brand insulation can be used in virtually any building project. Again, the brand has developed a number of unique solutions for different applications, but Styrofoam insulation can be used for load-bearing and non-load bearing walls. Styrofoam Cavitymate can be used in block-backed and steel stud cavity wall applications. No matter which product line you choose, the benefit of Styrofoam is that it can be used virtually anywhere. 

Durability and Strength

One of the key benefits of rigid foam board like Styrofoam is its exceptional durability. This is a product that will last for decades while continuing to provide optimal R-value. Because of Styrofoam Brand products’ unique construction, wind and water cannot penetrate the insulation, ensuring it lasts for years to come. What’s more, Styrofoam Brand’s serious compressive strength ensures you don’t have to worry about any breakdowns or damage during installation.

Ease of Installation

Styrofoam Brand products are designed with the builder in mind. Rigid boards are easy to handle and easy to install, requiring just common building tools and equipment to put up. Because of their lightweight, Styrofoam boards are fast to install and require minimal hands. 

Long-term Value

What matters most to you and your customers is value. Styrofoam Brand products are available at an affordable upfront cost, and they offer long-term value. With high-tech construction, the quality insulation that Styrofoam rigid boards provide ensure that property owners see yearly savings in energy efficiency.
