The Building Science Behind: How Exterior Continuous Insulation (ci) Can Help to Manage Condensation in Above Grade Wall Assemblies

Adding exterior continuous insulation such as, Halo® Exterra®, to an above grade wall assembly helps to keep the air behind the foam board insulation at a higher temperature. The benefit of air at a higher temperature means it can hold more moisture. This attribute is clearly illustrated when reviewing various air temperatures and the [...]
