I haven’t seen this before and guess many of you all haven’t either:
I have not. Impressive load ratings. No mention of cost though on their website.
I heard the extra cost to be around $5,000 on a complicated house with a walk-out basement.
Pretty unique design.
I think I would still go with a 2"XPS 150 styrofoam on the studs with 1/2" sheathing.
Looks good at first glance. We do not know how long it will take the energy savings to recoup the extra dollar outlay for the project. Remember energy savings does not always equate to money savings.
Niche product for sure. In a modern home with a lot of windows I doubt it would be show full benefit unless someone specifically designed the home for lot placement and restricted glass area.
I also have a license as a certified applicator in structural pest control. The insulated foam makes for a wonderful path for termites. I live in Texas, where the termite population is vary heavy. I would never consider this product.
I thought it was interesting, is all.
I’ll stick with my R-28 foam side walls and R-60 cellulose attic ranch on a basement w/R-15 rigid side walls and cracks & holes foamed or caulked. My 54,000 btu nat gas furnace does a great job on 2,450 sq. ft.
Thanks for posting this information. It is good to know.
Interesting, thanks for sharing Larry!
