barn insulation


Looking to insulate my barn with rigid styrofoam board insulation.... Do I need vapor barrier with this as I would if I used regular pink insulation?

if you are diligent with your seam sealing, you should not need a vapor barrier. but you will have to hit any voids with foam and tape all seams, cracks, etc...
