Insulation out to the elements.

    Hi. I am waiting for precast flooring to be dropped on my walls. I note that the K108 board that is in the cavity is left out to the weather . Is this a concern?
    Thanks

    Wrap the external edges of the slabs. That wrap can cover the cavity in the short term.

    Thanks Bryan. Does rain affect the insulation though?..

    They may warp which will leave them hard to fit tight to the blocks.

    if it’s the right stuff it should be ok for a while

    attention to detail, and inset of the slabs over the block should take care of that?
