Zip insulated panels PLUS rigid insulation for warm sheathing?
I am a fan of two things: energy conservation and warm sheathing. I see some terrific labor saving advantages to the INSULATED Zip sheathing system BUT it leaves the sheathing out in the cold where it doesn’t tryout as well. Has anyone ever considered using the insulated zip system PLUS added rigid insulation on the outside of the sheathing to keep the sheathing warm? How about insulated zip system with and EIFS system on the outside?
If you have a favorite wall assembly that keeps the sheathing warm please share. I am an architect interested in hearing how you approach the process.
Thanks – Sean
