A New Insulation Jacket

Continuous mineral-wool insulation, protected by an air barrier membrane and held in place with strapping, provides a thermal-bridge-free heat control layer.

Attaching Mineral Wool

The crew attached pieces of rigid mineral wool insulation to the wall using screws and metal discs.

Sealing Seams

For redundant air-tightness and an effective weather barrier, the crew sealed seams in the membrane using SIGA Wigluv tape.

Strapping the Wall for a Rainscreen

Three-quarter-inch strapping supplies nailing for siding, creates a capillary break for effective drainage of bulk water, and allows air movement for vapor drying.
