Basement Window Wells and Exterior Rigid Insulation
I’m working with a builder who is having difficulty detailing a window well with exterior rigid insulation. All the great details on this website and on buildingscience.com swear by exterior rigid insulation for basement foundation walls, etc. But for the life of me, I can’t find any details on how to deal with a window well space. The foam is exposed to the outside, so what’s the best way to protect it and cover it for appearance? How do you trim this out around the window? Does anyone have a link to good details for this? I’ve been scouring the net for quite a while and have not come up with anything.
