advantages with super iso boards
 
what are the advantages and disavantages with superiso as oposed with cement and insulation cement bonded together. I used about 6 in of cement then my super iso on top of that. Is there greater heat loss with super iso? Looks like most people usen the vermiculite cement mix.

There is less heat loss with superisol, but vermiculite/cement is less expensive and more readily fabricated/accessible to the average builder.

The SuperIsol under oven insulation hasn't been around that long, and it is becoming much more popular. With the installation guide re-writes, I think it will become even more popular.

Maver hit the nail on the head. It's a little more expensive, but much easier to install, and your oven will hold heat better and perform better through less heat loss. Peter installs a lot of our ovens (in NorCal) and cooks in different ones all the time, and he thinks the floor heat stays more even across the floor with the SuperIsol.
