Frame and Insulate a Basement Wall in Under 10 Minutes. After an initial dry stack to determine the layout and cuts, Ed and Dean are ready to adhere the panels to the wall. Watch them do it in less than 10 minutes. http://insofast.com/

You should insulate your rim joist before installing the InSoFast Panels.
DO NOT use Fiberglass insulation to cut air infiltration and add R value around joist or under a bay window, cost of $100 is not worth the price.
We show you how to attach rigid foam to concrete.
How to insulate a cinder block wall after you lay the blocks and the mortar sets.

Thermal Control Layer
The addition of InSoFast’s exterior rigid insulation can significantly improve the wall assembly thermal performance because it provides a continuous insulation layer that diminishes the impact of thermal bridges caused by framing.
Thermal bridging through framing components reduces envelope insulation performance by 15-20% in wood frame construction and by 40%-60% in metal frame construction.
Continuous Insulation (Ci) is an insulation blanket around the exterior of the structure. Ci creates a thermal break between wall framing and the exterior conditions. Installing CI reduces energy loss caused by bridging over the thermal gaps at the wood or metal studs and other wall framing components. Additionally, InSoFast’s insulation on the exterior of wall framing reduces potential for moisture problems. InSoFast acts as a moisture barrier, so water that gets into the wall system is deflected or drained away. Next when insulation is placed on the exterior of the wall structure, the dew point is moved outward reducing the potential for condensation on the warm side of the wall where building materials are more sensitive to rotting.
The threat of moisture damage also is reduced
InSoFast’s advanced panel additionally to reducing heat loss and increasing the R-value of the wall system, the other benefits of putting insulation on the outside of your wall: Include reducing the chance for the moisture in the cavity (water vapor) to condense on the inside face of the sheathing, which happens when the sheathing temperature is below the dew point. This moisture can lead to mold and mildew, and can reduce the effectiveness of the cavity insulation and ultimately shorten the life of the wall through rot. You have to ask yourself, “Why not use InSoFast to prevent rot?”
