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 [...]

Transition Details at Grade – Cold Climates

Importance of Detailing Transitions Failures of the building enclosure can occur within a wall, roof, or the foundation, however, more often than not a failure occurs at the transition from one assembly or material to another (i.e. above grade wall to foundation wall or exterior to interior air barrier system). A failure at a [...]
