Learning Objectives

  1. Participants will be able to better understand the differences between wall assemblies built with cavity insulation, continuous insulation, and a combination of the two.
  2. The participants will review in detail the reasons why the new energy codes are requiring the use of continuous insulation and how they can better use this knowledge in providing quality wall assemblies for their clients.
  3. The participants will better understand how the use of continuous insulation will help eliminate moisture that builds within wall assemblies.
  4. The participants will discuss current and future R-Values of wall assemblies and the added value of continuous insulation in these assemblies.


Excellent. Thanks!

Wanda Lowrey

Great presentation. The sound quality wasn't really great.

Svetlana Lunev

Audio quality could have been better. Would like to see all the slides shown in the class. Appeared at time that slides were being shown and discussed that were not being shown in the online presentation. Provide a list of products being shown and discussed. Was difficult understanding the products being discussed. But, overall, very informative.

Neel Morton

Thank you!

Paul Masino

Great products for energy savings

Ronald Goodstein

Very informative

William Jarratt

Good course on continuous insulation and OX Engineered Products

John Calcagnile

This was educational.

Raymond R. Lammon

nice refresher on vapor migration and insulation in exterior wall assemblies

Aavart Patel

Thank you

Jeff Whyte


Doug Martin

Good refresher course.

Anthony Filippini

Very Informative

Jonathan Berkman

Great Info!

Chris White


Dan Grudek

good course

Anne Smith

Informative overview.

Stephen McCall


henry panton

Good seminar

Cecil Ricks


Mohammed Nouman

Audio made it difficult to understand

Erik Mar

Started Strong - seemed to drift a bit toward the end


Good information on R values and how best to insulate a building in the future.

John D Skodi

Great presentation regarding using rigid insulation for better R-value performance, avoidance of thermal bridging, doubles as vapor barrier and even structural panels.

Barry Espinosa

useful information

John Eggersdorfer

useful information

Runzhu Tian


Leila Ammar

Audio quality could be improved. Builder's perspective provided at end really helpful.

Mitchell Sanchez

Good information. In the online version, the presenter was shown in a separate screen and at times it was difficult to discern what he was pointing at.

Judith Szabo-Stull


Sonja Harasimowicz


Joe Davidson

This is a good topic but the audio is poor from the prsentation.

Roger Stine

thank you

Sophia Rickard

Wish the audio was a little better.

Regina Thompson

Good information. Moisture is a bigger and tougher problem in NC and further south than what they discussed in this video

Rick Ball

Learned alot of basics and interesting facts.

Rouel de la Paz

well organized

Kurt Aichler

Good information

Continuous Insulation vs. Cavity


This course will review an in-depth breakdown of the current uses of insulation in wall assemblies. The attendees will learn more about the differences in the use of cavity insulation versus the use of continuous insulation installed on the exterior of the building sheathing. Discussion points to include the changes of the current energy codes and the requirements for the use of continuous insulation in the majority of future projects. The participant will be able to better evaluate their current wall assemblies and understand the requirements that are dictated by current codes.

Credits: 1 AIA HSW + 1 USGBC/GBCI + 1 AIBC Core LU + 1 AAA Structured LU + 1 AANB, NSAA, ALBNL (EPP)
