What This Presentation Covers:
Most designers understand that wall systems using exterior insulation can provide high levels of thermal performance. Less commonly discussed are the other performance benefits of this approach--including benefits for moisture durability, which is of critical importance. This presentation will discuss various aspects of exterior-insulated wall assemblies, including how the addition of exterior insulation impacts water, air, vapor, and thermal control for the building enclosure.
You'll Learn About:
- Methods for attaching cladding through exterior insulation in terms of relative thermal effectiveness.
- The impact of exterior insulation on water control.
- Exterior insulation and air leakage.
Dewpoint and the role of exterior insulation in managing vapor and condensation risk.
- Format: 1 hour recording + quiz. Downloadable slides are included.
