 o
regid insulation around existing plumbing

Posted by jckos (My Page) on

I plan to put rigid insulation against the basement walls before framing and drywall.

How should I handle a wall where plumbing lines and electrical service wires flush against them? These will likely need to be accessed in the future.

Thanks in advance

I should say "rigid"

If it drops below freezing in your climate, it's not advisable to have water pipes on an outside wall. In any case, don't cover and hide pipes and wires with the rigid insulation.
