rStud insulated 2×6 studs
Although not as effective in eliminating bridging, the rStud 2×6 looks interesting in lieu of external rigid foam over OSB sheathing based on local area construction practices. Have any technical reports been published as of yet that anyone is aware of regarding results with the product? Curious as to its strength & performance when compared to traditional 2×6’s. Interesting option to consider with Zip exterior sheathing and good air sealing followed by a blown in insulation such as Manville Spider. Not sure of its cost effectiveness as compared to 2×6 construction with 2″ of exterior XPS in zone 5. Haven’t seen much other than some press news a while back. Thanks.
