Explain the correct usage of rigid insulation on the exterior of the building.
Rigid insulation seems like a good choice to add R-value to the whole wall (breaking the thermal bridging, etc) as opposed to just between the studs like most insulation. But isn’t it basically impermeable and thus not allowing the wall to breath…not allowing moisture from the inside to exit by diffusion.
