Are we a nation of sweater wearers or sweater eaters? The pushback we get when we are asking for exterior insulation is:
- It's harder than interstitial insulation.
- It costs more money. Actually, it doesn't if we're talking about steel frame but it is true if we're talking about wood-frame buildings.
- The third reason that comes up occasionally is fire codes: I have to use foam plastic and so therefore I have a problem.
Those are the three categories of issues I get.
