Roofs and Walls: Interior vs. Exterior Insulation
I am curious if anyone knows the reason/science behind why the ratio of internal to external insulation is smaller in walls then a roof? For example, in my zone, Zone 6 about 51% of the insulation should be on the exterior of a roof vs 36% for a wall. Is it because walls are less likely to have moisture build up due to condensation vs a roof?
