Pieces of heavy wire screen about 2 inches square with a roofing nail in the center.You put "liquid nails" on the screen and stuck them on a block or cement wall. After the glue dried put 2 X 8 foam board insulation on and then a metal clip went on the nail to hold it in place. Anyone know what they are called and where I can find them?
Thank you

Did you find those insulation anchors yet? Have you called any local insulators that use foam board? Let us know how it works out for you.

We used foam insulation board on the outside of our house before putting on shake shingles but just nailed them onto the old exterior siding. Where are you using this product? Are you going against masonry, wood, or some other surface? If masonry why wouldn't you just use an adhesive for the board?

Several years ago I Insulated the outside of our
basemnet walls with the Dow/Styrafoam system using 1" Blue board and the plastic fasteners that came with the system. Dow #11 mastic was used to hold the panels while I drilled the holes for the fasteners. Some cements will destroy Styrofoam, so be careful what you use.
The system included joint covering material and a
latex stucco that brushed on. It is very effective. Before insulating the foundaton I kept a wood stove going down there and burned about $40 worth of wood a month. After insulating just the heat from the boiler keeps the basement warmer than it was with the wood stove helping.
