V4 was designed to be used in 2x4 construction only and meet R18 (effective) in a typical wall system. Why 2x4 construction only? Because 2x6 walls are thicker, there’s more wood, and thicker insulation helps keep your thicker wall system warm and helps it to dry out in the event of a leak in your structure. While V4 is designed for 2x4 walls, V6 is designed for 2x6 construction. Learn more about Vertibreak® for 2x6 walls.R6.02, RSI 1.06 ( 3/4")
