After attaching netting to the 2x6 studs, workers fill the wall cavities with R-23 of blown fiberglass made from recycled bottles.
All ceiling, wall, floor, and slab insulation shall achieve RESNET-defined Grade I installation
Batt insulation should be cut to fit around wiring so that insulation can completely fill the wall cavity
Blown cellulose insulation completely fills the netted wall and ceiling cavities
Blown fiberglass insulation fills netted wall cavities
Ceiling, wall, floor, and slab insulation levels shall meet or exceed Builders Challenge levels
Example of an HVAC installer’s balancing report form
Expanded polystyrene insulation is installed with joints taped and lath attached in preparation for the application of stucco. Windows are flashed to the drainage plane (not seen), which is behind the insulation.
Faced fiberglass batt insulation can be stapled to the stud faces or slightly inset, but avoid compressing the batts
Faced fiberglass batt insulation incorrectly installed
HVAC duct layout
Identify what materials will constitute the continuous air barrier around the building envelope.
Install bottom layer of rigid insulation
Insulating sheathing is extended up to the roof rafters and sealed around the framing with spray foam as part of this exterior wall retrofit
