Default Anyone ever used Styrofoam insulation. The 4x8 ft sheets

Does the plastic covering need to be removed before putting the glue on? I am attaching to the metal roof of my Carport and so far some areas hasn't stuck good. They stuck for about 2 wks then started to come apart some. I used the locktite brand foam insulation caulk and even braced the foam up for about 24 hrs. I tried the Liquid nails foamboard caulk and it does seem to work better than the loctite stuff a little bit.

I was thinking I needed to remove the plastic from the boards before glueing but hell I would have thought they put the plastic on there for a reason. I guess just one of those things where you have to try and see what works better so just wondering if you guys have used, what did you do?

Okay. That makes sense. When applying any adhesive to metal roofing, the roofing must be clean and free of oils. Most metal roofing comes with a film of oil on it. If that film is not removed you will have a hard time getting any adhesive to adhere. Now, just what type of styrofoam did you apply? Did it have plastic on both sides? Or just one side? If it had plastic on one side, that is the vapor barrier and should have been placed on the inside - not against the roof as you indicated. Me guess is that the plastic should have been removed then glued to a clean surface.

Are you planning on using any more insulation for audio isolation (I would highly recommend it)?

Not a noise barrier per se but something to keep the audio from bouncing around (nature of styrofoam insulation unless designed specifically for sound deadening), creating echoes and other terrible sound anomalies which will really detract from your movie and music enjoyment.

A buddy of mine put memory foam ( 2" thick king size bed toppers) (same as temperpedic mattress) on his walls and talk about creating a silent sound room. We had regular waffle foam in our studio in Memphis, but it did not compare to this stuff. It is dense and absorbs. He has a simple garage studio and loves to bang on the drums all day. He spent a couple of grand on the sound barrier,,,WAF of 10+.
