Currently in the middle of the process of shoring up the classic sagging roof on a 1981 Bigfoot
B17 and I was cruising around picking up sealant, furring strips, etc yesterday and I took a gander at the Rigid insulation on home depot to gauge what I am going to expect for costs.
QUESTION: XPS or EPS insulation? Since this stuff is going to have screws, and supporting the weight
of shelves, roof panels etc, I want to make sure that I am using the right stuff for adding screws to this. There are a few options for insulation and I want to make sure that I am using the right stuff, as I dont know what was originally used, or what is "best practice" for these renovations.
Option 1: Fomular XPS https://www.homedepot.ca/product/owe...dge/1000155116
Option #2: Durofoam EPS https://www.homedepot.ca/product/dur...nch/1000116769
Will be using PL Premium Fast Grab adhesive to adhere the furring strips, insulation etc, onto the freshly cleaned up glass on the roof, then BRADNAILING the wood panelling and trim to the insulation as needed, and screwing things in as needed.
Question #2: When re-installing the fasteners for the cabinets, am I okay to just put the new SS screws that I got for this into the original holes? or should I go to a new location? If I am using the old location, do I need to prepare the holes at all? add silicone to the penetration? Go to a bigger screw? Looking to make sure this thing is rock solid.
Asbestos, the yellow insulation along the side panels as well as the insulation in the refrigerator
heating column, flooring, and paneling. Does this stuff have Asbestos in it? Any references to be sure? Obviously I should probably get it tested and any sanding work I have used a respirator, but I am looking for a yes/no on this. From my understanding Bigfoot
stopped using Asbestos early on, but I wanted to be sure, again 1981 B17 Bigfoot
Thank you all in advance.
