Foil-faced f.b. is recommended for a hot humid climate, pp. 5: http://www.buildingscience.com/docum...ting-sheathing

Your location makes a huge difference on foamboard thickness, rainscreen or not, faced or not, etc.....

Rainscreen wall designs are preferable regardless of climate region in my opinion.

+1 to a foil faced FB in hot humid climates on the exterior wall.

As Hardie defines where/how to install their product, it may be helpful to ask where a new member lives for insulation guidance or discussion, eg. no faced f.b. in a cold climate with poly sheeting already installed on the interior under drywall.......(the dreaded) two vapor barriers. Since foil-faced was posted, I presume a colder climate..... though I've been wrong before!

On a side note; A "rainscreen" system is not needed in a hot-dry or mixed-dry according to building science, page 5 (again) the lower map titled "Exposure" (blue shades) in my post #4 link.

Under 20" annual rainfall locations wouldn't benefit enough to pay for it (in my opinion), another map to only 16": http://maps.howstuffworks.com/united...infall-map.htm

only "where it rains"; http://www.buildingscience.com/docum...and-air-spaces
