Hi I'm new to the group, and would like to ask the experts some
questions on installing expanded polystyrene insulation.
I'm finishing my basement and the walls are concrete. I want to
"glue" the EPS directly to the concrete walls then frame out walls
using 2x4,and finish the walls with 1/2 sheetrock. The basement will be
heated in the winter. The EPS is foil faced on one side and plastic
wraped on the other. My very basic questions are:
1) What side of EPS should face inward? I assume the foil to
reflect heat, but I don't want to assume. 2) What is the best adhesive
to use ? 3) Should the EPS go all the way up the wall to cover the
house sill or just the concrete wall?
Thanks in advance for any responses.
