But, this finding does mean that EPS insulation can perform both of its design functions — slowing heat transfer and groundwater management — very well.
See how applying a layer of Halo Exterra can reduce your home’s energy consumption and prevent unhealthy mold outbreaks. It’s also an opportunity to meet stringent new energy codes without breaking the bank.
Halo’s Interra rigid insulation excels at insulating walls, floors, and ceilings — it offers a stable, long-term R-Value, acts as a vapor barrier when needed, and reflects heat back inside if you leave an air gap.
