Insulating I beams

Post by getter done » Fri Nov 15, 2019 8:10 am

Our I beams are resting on the poured concrete walls and I was wondering how to insulate around them.

We've used 2" XPS in all the RIM joists and I'm stuck on those I beams. Do we just use XPS there as well with spray foam to seal the gaps?

Yes, just like the rim joist areas.
