There’s more to most walls than meets the eye, and the R-value of a whole wall can be considerably lower than the R-value of the insulation. Whole wall R-value calculation procedures factor in all of the effects of additional structural members at windows, doors, and exterior wall corners.ORNL Testing and SIPs
