Enter keywords like, 'insulation' or 'kitchens' etc to find your topic. Excellent article Todd! Moves the dew point and the drainage plane.
I used poli-iso, fully taped, windows set on top of the foam, and then rain screen details. I have a guest at my store who wants to do this. I have yet to find a good answer for him. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Scott. I ask as I have already installed a few windows directly to the sheathing. Thanks in advance. Thicker foam requires different details that make it tough to do after the fact.
Good luck. I was thinking to install strapping over the insulation and siding over the stapping. Would you recommend I wrap the house before I insulate, after I insulate, or not at all? I live in Alberta Canada and am worried about condensation. Don — Tough question. My gut is telling me: house wrap, strapping, foam, then siding, so that there is an air space between foam and stucco…. Hi Don, we are thinking of doing the exact same thing to our house in Ottawa, except our house is Angel stone instead of stucco.
Did you end up getting an answer to this question? Would appreciate any wisdom you can share. There is no foam board under the siding now. This is my first time replacing siding.
We live in PA when the temperature can get pretty cold in the winter at times. Greg — The bigger issue is sealing that foam well. Any opinion about putting Tyvek over or under the foam insulation. Tyvek recommends putting the HomeWrap over the foam board. Greg — This topic is all over the place. The last two projects we built the architects had the foam on top of the building wrap.
I think this is good because it allows the building sheathing to breath and not trap moisture against the sheathing or siding. I have a contractor installing some vinyl shake siding on an existing porch over my garage. Is it plywood, then building wrap, then siding?
I am thinking about replacing my siding. If I use 1 inch foam and tape the seams will I have moisture problems from the inside? I live in northern Kentucky. House was built in It has what looks like paper backed batting insulation. I think r This is only the top half. The bottom has some stone and some brick exterior against block. Thought about getting spray foam in that. Thanks for your help. Almost all the houses this contractor built in my neighborhood were constructed without exterior sheathing—just the foam and siding.
A framer who lives in one of those homes said there is metal diagonal bracing. He sheathed all the sides of his home took him 8 years for all 4 sides before re-siding. My home has wooden clap boards which I am tired of repainting, with quite a few areas of rotting trims and boards. Would like to have house sheathed —but the cost of doing it is too much too afford house is 24 squares. Is replacing wood siding with vinyl and structural foam sheathing enough? Foam plus wood siding is one thing the wood has some strength, especially for impact loads , but foam and vinyl does give me some heart burn.
I bought a older mobile home in las vegas Nevada. This is a very dry area but should I use a vapor barrier with the insulation. Will insulation help with the noise.
Yes insulation will help. Be very careful with cement in contact with aluminum…. Thanks for the info, Todd. Living near a busy highway, noise reduction is also a factor. But different websites have me concerned about creating moisture issues with the sheathing in either case. Which choice would be best for noise? Could I create a new problem in the process? The foam will help a bit with noise. Todd, I am looking for best insulation wrap to go over asbestos shingles, and then siding.
Pat — The issue is a bit more complex. When you go to thicker insulation, it usually means modifying the trim too accommodate the thicker combination of insulation and siding. Todd, I am considering building a new house. I am looking for the best combination. I am either going with spray foam or wet cellulose. Am I creating moisture issues? What would you suggest? I will be building in central Illinois. Thank for your input. Then inside, the stud bays are usually insulated with additional insulation fiberglass, cellulose dry, not wet , or spray foam.
This helps move the dew point out of the wall assembly to prevent moisture problems. The next best approach is using spray foam in the wall cavity. If you go with cellulose, my preference is using the BIB system with dry cellulose. Todd, Thanks for taking the time to answer my question. Please take some more time to explain the BIB system.
Also, is the exterior of the wall sheathed with OSB or something else? Would metal T bracing and foam over studs be sufficient? Thanks again. We like the look of these from legendary London record shop, Rough Trade. You're hopefully getting the idea that the more attention you pay to your turntable set-up, the better your results.
Everything matters to an extent, so while you shouldn't lose sleep over the effect of these details, if you enjoy experimenting to get the best out of your music, here's something else you can try: a spirit level. Simple but effective, this level comes in machined aluminium housing and will help you ensure the horizontal adjustment of your turntable is spot-on. To help you keep your turntable level, you might want to invest in an isolation platform. Vibrations are the enemy of record playback and this Pro-Ject platform is one way to keep them to an absolute minimum.
It has a granular-filled, heavy-weight MDF base, with adjustable feet and a choice of sizes. It looks pretty smart in a minimal way, too, thanks to the anthracite finish. Continuing the theme of keeping things on the level, a good hi-fi or AV rack is a must-have for any system with more than a few components and especially when dealing with a sensitive turntable. Hi-Fi Racks has been making simple, solid, wood furniture for some time now, which will help ensure your kit can perform at its best without being interrupted by any external vibrations.
The Omnium8 has a range of design options that give a degree of flexibility, so if you like the basic style, you should be able to make it work with your system and space. But what if a rack doesn't work in your room? Whether that's because of space, children or a springy floor, you could go for a wall mount instead. Use this shelf to get your turntable up and off the floor - and ideally, mounted at the perfect height for putting on vinyl, too.

The important thing to know is that your stylus MUST maintain complete contact with the undulations to correctly reproduce your music. All those signature pops, clicks and ticks associated with playing your records are just dust particles getting in between your stylus and the grooves. Anyway, as you can see, keep your records covered, sleeved, and clean them frequently.
Oh, and it gets worse…. This is that the dirt and dust particles look at x. Amazing how much of it is all hidden from the naked eye. I was embarrassed at first when I saw how bad these records were, but I do take pretty good care of my vinyl.
Again, at x you can see all the way into the bottom of the groove. But do you see just above center, about the third groove down? You can see the undulation waves.
This must be a very high frequency section because you can really see the waves. This time we are looking vertically into the grooves. And let me assure you I did play this record before it went under the microscope.Vinyl records are a unique collectable form of music, they are fun and offer a great listening experience.
