Last month, I attended NAHB’s midyear meeting in Miami and had the pleasure of sitting in on a presentation by Daniel Swift, president and CEO of Des Moines-based architecture group BSB Design.

SmartBatt with MoistureSense Technology from CertainTeed is the industry’s first kraft-faced fiberglass batt insulation. MoistureSense is a smart vapor retarder that blocks indoor moisture from entering when humidity in the wall cavity is low and allows the wall to breathe in high humidity, reducing the potential for mold and mildew growth. SmartBatt offers an alternative to the practice of installing a vapor barrier film over unfaced batts, eliminating the need for two-step installation and saving considerable time and labor costs.
