Cladding Attachment Solutions For Exterior Insulated Walls - Report by RDH Building Science
To summarize the thermal performance of the various cladding attachment strategies presented, the range of thermal effectiveness of the exterior insulation is shown below. These percentages can be multiplied by the R-value of the exterior insulation and added to the back-up wall R-value to determine an approximate overall effective R-value for the wall assembly.
