installing foam board around basement windows


Basement is fully insulated except around the inside of the basement windows. Noticed some condensation on the concrete and wonder if using some adhesive to attach some xps foam board. And then using tuck tape to prevent any of the warm basement air from reaching the concrete would create any problems.

Thanks

It should work just fine, but keep in mind that you should not be leaving exposed foams without some sort of ignition or thermal barrier.
