EPS is a closed cell, lightweight, foamed plastic which has a compression strength between 10 to 33 PSI for most construction applications.  Applied in roofing, foundations, and walls. EPS has a successful history of efficient use in industrial, commercial, residential and cold storage buildings.

EPS insulation (1 lb. per cubic foot) provides a typical R-value of 3.9 per inch at mean temperature of 75° F.  The R-value of EPS insulation is permanent because the cellular structure of EPS  contains only stabilized air.  It's R value will not decrease as it ages.

Exterior Sheathing

  • Meets or exceeds current energy conservation design standards without increasing stud width.
  • Reduces air infiltration and heat loss through framing; slows convective looping.
  • Corner bracing required for non-structural sheathing.
  • Foil-faced EPS with air space can provide additional R-value; retards radiant heat flow.
  • Peforated foil promotes breathability.
  • Elimiates need for extra-deep framing.

Perimeter Insulation

  • Select strength and thickness to meet loading and thermal requirements.
  • Long-term resistance to slab edge heat loss

Eave Vents

  • Allow air to enter at the eave and move out hot, energy-robbing attic air in summer and damaging attic air in the winter.
  • Proper roof ventilation eliminates the potential damaging ice build-up at eaves and valleys.
