Insulation & Air Sealing
Closed Cell, Open, Cell, High Density, Slow-Rise, or Fire Retardant?
The first layer of foam is mostly an insulation layer; the outer layer is the air barrier and drainage plane. This video is about the first layer.
A retrofit solution that works great for a low-skill workforce—like volunteers
A saw and a knife that cut rockwool insulation like a "laser"
Make a route for drainage, protect the structure, and use water-tolerant materials to rebuild
Turns out, ducts buried under insulation actually can work to save energy and eliminate condensation inside the ducts. If you seal and insulate them first
Everything* you need to know about adding insulation to the outside of old homes with cold bones
Pennsylvania, New York, and Vancouver think so.
Continuous exterior insulation means smaller studs and higher performance
In this video, the robotic 'narrator' asks multiple questions about construction innovations of the near future.
