    I haven't used it a ton , actually got it to problem solve a thermal bridging / thermal bypass issue on a job but it is pretty cool

    Its pretty awesome for all that kind of stuff , my reason for getting it is mostly for improving the thermal envelope on buildings

    I would pull that cement board too, I seriously doubt it was installed properly with a rain screen and with your h2o issues it will likely become a sodden crumbly mess if u cover it up with another product. Then u can reinstall your windows correctly :)

    Our inspectors used one to check our circuit panels, outlets, and heat flow through the house.

    Anyone have any experience with drywall/insulation in a garage? Renting a home in the PNW with half the garage insulated and drywalled. I'm going to get the other half done so I can hopefully spend more time in there during the winter months. Codes permit me to install it myself, going to match what was previously installed.

    I've got to do 3 4'x8' sheets per side to complete it. I'm going to get a drywall driver bit and some drywall tape for the seams. Anything else I should consider?

    If you don't want to throw down $800 for a Flir system and don't have to have as much detail Seek thermal has a nice gadget for around $225 that connects to most smart phones. Flir make a similar one. Both make a lower price the one I have and a better model for a little more $.

    Youtube is your friend. Speaking of friends, hanging sheetrock is definitely easier with one. Or a lift lol.

    You’ll want to put a bead of drywall adhesive on studs and plates, and you’ll need mud and a 6” drywall knife to make the tape stick and to seal the gap

    I assume you’re not finishing/painting?

    What are you insulating with?

    Just saw you’re renting. check with your landlord first, they might give U a break on your next rent in the amount of materials invested. Or keep ur security deposit lol
