Construction can’t always wait for a warmer day. If you’re building in the middle of a North American winter, check out these 5 steps to protect Halo’s rigid insulation products from cold-related damage
To take advantage of Exterra’s breathability, you’ll need that poly vapor barrier on the warm side to block vapor and moisture from traveling inside the building. Learn more about this code requirement here.
Exterra provides an effective air control layer by default, so technically speaking, you don’t need any additional house wrap. So, regardless of the method you go with, you’ll have that integral air barrier in your wall.
Interra is a far better bet if you’re looking for overall quality, performance, and stable R-Values. Spray foam, on the other hand, works well if you want to save time on installation, but it can be more costly overall.

Do you worry about exposing foam board insulation to the outdoors? Or leaving it uncovered inside a home? Read more to explore the perils of exterior and interior exposure, and how you can get the most of your foam board insulation.
Insulating with Halo’s Interra eliminates the need for a separate vapor barrier (as long as you tape the edges), and also gives you a much better wall (or roof); the layer of continuous insulation adds critical R-Value to the assembly AND creates an effective thermal break. Read more to see how!
By about 2030, most provinces should be hitting Tier 5 — Net-Zero Ready. See how using Logix Brands products can get your closer to Tier 5, with passive energy generation systems and high-performance envelopes to meet their energy demands!
Halo Exterra is not structural – it does not contribute structural strength to a home or building. However, despite not being structural, Halo Exterra can replace OSB sheathing if structural bracing is provided at the corners and certain sections of the wall to provide the needed resistance to wind and seismic loads.
Neopor’s GPS has shown an incredible ability to ward off deterioration, shed moisture, and keep steady R-Values in the face of extreme temperature and moisture changes. Learn how Halo’s advanced rigid insulation products offer long-term quality, even in the harshest of environments.
