Installing Insulation and Plastering

Carpenter Bob Ryley and Tim Grether (from Owens Corning) install insulation and vapor barrier in the bathroom. And Jim Larson (from Georgia Pacific) installs a special backer board for tile.

Clip Summary

In the bathroom, Owens Corning fiberglass R-13 insulation is used as a vapor retarder and to provide thermal protection. Jim Larson (from Georgia Pacific) hangs a special backer board for the walls, which has a patented gypsum core, reinforced fiberglass, mats on both sides, and a heat-cured acrylic face that stops penetration and moisture. Also, plastering gets underway with Jean Oliver, who uses plaster that comes from Champion Building Supplies of West Kingston, RI.
