Attaching siding to houses with exterior foam insulation
How difficult is it to attach siding, trim and windows to a house that has 2" of rigid foam insulation on the outside? Some people recommend a layer of furring on the outside of the foam, it that adequate to hold siding on? Do building inspectors allow the ommision of a poly vapor barrier on the inside with this system?
