twist on Engler’s basement insulation?
I have an unfinished basement in which I’d like to use Engler’s EPS technique. Problem is Building Dept. required the studs/fiberglass/plastic combo installed at end of construction. Rather than tearing out the studs, I was thinking of using EPS thin enough to slip between the studs and basement walls, glue and tape, and reuse the existing FG for added insulation.
Figure I could get the vapor permeability of a EPS shell, save myself the redo work, and use the FG I already paid for.
Anyone see a problem with this? Thanks.
