Default Re: Question about exposed styrofoam insulation.

Exposed Plastic/foam Insulation-Fire hazzard,cover, remove

Polystyrene and polyurethane insulation create a severe fire hazzard when left exposed. When ignited they burn rapidly and give off toxic fumes. Both types of insulation are considered safe when covered. Inside a house or garage,they should be covered with 1/2 inch of drywall.
