AbstractExterior basement insulation performs many functions. It not only provides thermal resistance between the soil and the interior, it also protects the structure from a challenging environment (e.g. moisture from wet soils, heaving and adhering soils due to frost action). It provides a means of water management at the interface of the soil and insulation, while promoting drying out of the structure. In this context, it is important to set performance parameters for setting appropriate materials. The Canadian Urethane Foam Contractors Association established a joint research project with the Institute for Research in Construction to assess the in-situ thermal performance of Spray Polyurethane Foam (SPF) applied to the exterior of a basement.
