How-To Video: Air Barrier Inspection Series - Windows


March 01, 2010



This video provides a demonstration of inspecting windows to ensure a continuous air barrier. It includes a segment on an air sealing inspection in Concord, Mass. The home in this video was designed so that the drywall creates a continuous interior air barrier. The home's 4-inch-thick layer of rigid foam sheathing puts the outboard-mounted windows several inches away from the interior edge of the wall. This deep gap around every window has to be bridged to make the airtight drywall work.
