Tstud Framing and Zip-R Sheathing

Greg Houston | Posted in General Questions on

Saw a recent Instagram post from Matt Risinger showing using T-studs and Zip-R sheathing. Seems like excessive cost without return to me. Either/or is sufficient no?

    Excessive and sufficient are relative terms, but I would agree there are likely more economical ways to achieve a similarly performing wall.

    Also, the idea of combining two rare products is a nightmare to me. It only works if you're framing in house or use the same assembly over and over.

    Greg,

    Like you I'd just pick one product to reduce thermal bridging, but Matt has a different client-base and agenda.

    That's what I thought. I wanted to make sure I wasn't missing anything.
