Building codes and green building standards are continuing to raise the bar on energy efficiency and high performance in buildings. In wood framed buildings, thermal and moisture management in wall cavities and the air tightness of the enclosure are core components to create advanced building enclosures.

Step by step examples will show how to determine the amount of continuous insulation required to meet prescriptive code requirements, depending on climate zone.
