Exterior Insulation

The amount of energy your household consumes is directly related to the ability of heat to get in and out of your home. This faculty is measured by thermal resistance denoted by an r-value. It measures resistance to heat flow through wall thickness and insulation. The higher the r-value, the more thermal resistant your walls are.

Simply put, when your installation has superior insulating properties you will be able to keep your home cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. A high r-value equates a more comfortable home. Better yet, with a notable reduction in energy consumption your monthly utility expenditure is significantly reduced. Professionally installed exterior insulation is an investment with an immediate ROI that pays for decades to come.
