Continuous Insulation is a relatively inexpensive and practical building component that boasts many benefits.
Wondering whether Type 1 GPS or Type 2 Polyiso is the better fit for your next project? Check out this side-by-side comparison between Type 1 Graphite Polystyrene (GPS), and Type 2 Polyiso (Polyisocyanurate).
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.
