basement insulation w/ super tuff

dave-marylandNovember 10, 2008

is the super tuff product equal to some of the extruded poly products out there for insulating basement walls?

Current Plan: Building Science Model

-1'foam product XPS

-2"x4" studs with FG.

-dow 3/8in 4'x50ft (siding product) extruded poly on floor.

even thought about the OC siding XPS product as a cost effective option on the wall. will this supply enought moisture resistance for the Building Science model?



Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Building Science says the most cost effective strategy for insulating a basement is using polyisocyanurate for the above-grade portion of the basement wall and XPS or EPS below-grade. (See link, scroll to research report 0202 figure 11.)

Exterior siding on the interior basement walls?
