Rigid foam against the foundation
Rigid foam and caulk are used to seal each joist bay cavity
Rigid foam extends under the full slab and lines the inside edges of the foundation walls.
Rigid foam forms an insulating bond break between the foundation wall and the slab
Rigid foam insulated sheathing placed exterior to house wrap, interior to house wrap, or take the place of the house wrap
Rigid foam insulation can serve as the drainage plane when all seams are taped. Furring strips provide an air gap behind the cladding.
Rigid foam insulation is installed along the exterior edge of an existing foundation slab
Rigid foam insulation is taped at seams and installed over a drainage pad of aggregate to serve as a capillary break under the basement slab.
Rigid foam is sandwiched between lumber to form insulated headers over windows.
Rigid foam protects the exterior of the foundation.
Rigid foam serves as the sheathing on these 2x6 24-inch on center walls; plywood is used only at the corners for wind bracing.
Rigid foam slab edge insulation is installed along the exterior edge of a monolithic slab foundation
Rigid foam wraps the exterior of the foundation slab.
Rigid mineral wool insulation is covered with ¼-inch wood battens which provides a air and drainage gap under the cedar and fiber cement siding.
Rim joists are insulated with R-20 of open-cell spray foam which is air sealing and insulating but vapor permeable.
