Hi all,

I have a stud wall with PIR insulation wedged inbetween batten. If use aluminium foul tape to tape up the joins between insulation and batten and the batten itself will this create an adequate vapour barrier?

It depends how much you believe in the tape! For the time required to faff with the tape and the cost of it, you could probably just hang a plastic sheet on the entire wall
Well I've already taped it all so... But before board goes ob i wanted to be sure I did an OK job. The tape seems solid and sticky.
