3. Install Inspection Strips
Inspection strips allow you to visually inspect the home’s sill plate and rim joist for signs of termites or carpenter ants. This way, you can catch an infestation and call in pest control before excessive damage occurs.
Installing foam board insulation shouldn’t be a difficult task that slows you and your crew down. Check out these simple, yet highly useful tips for getting through this scope of work faster.
EPS and EPS-based insulation (such as Halo Subterra) is able to keep water away from a basement’s concrete wall. Of course, this doesn’t mean that other waterproofing methods shouldn’t be in place. But, this finding does mean that EPS insulation can perform both of its design functions — slowing heat transfer and groundwater management — very well.
Modern homes are filled with objects and surfaces that “off-gas,” or emit VOCs long after they’ve been manufactured. With Halo’s Interra, the off-gassing is minimal and it has earned a GREENGAURD Gold certification — an achievement reserved for materials that are proven to be clean.
The long-awaited NBC 2020 is a roadmap to Net Zero Energy Ready construction in Canada, and introduces new tiered, performance and prescriptive approaches.
