The Pex Tubing for in-floor radiant heat is placed at the bottom of the concrete slab. We use ground coupling to increase efficiency for year round comfort.
Raised-Heel Energy Trusses are engineered wood trusses fitted with a heel that intersects with the perimeter wall plate to raise it up, allowing more insulation to create a tighter envelope and lower heating bills.
Raised-heel trusses allow more space for insulation without compressing it. This reduces heat loss and improves attic ventilation. Another benefit is this protects your roof by eliminating ice dams from forming.
We use 2 x 6 exterior wall construction which creates a stronger structure. Then we use the new Zip System R-sheathing and tape to streamline water, air and thermal control. With built-in continuous exterior insulation and an integrated air-and-water barrier, it eliminates the need for a house wrap.
We use BIBS (Blown In Blanket System) for superior insulation. This system delivers maximum performance by completely filling the wall cavity around pipes, wires, electrical boxes and reducing noise penetration.
We use a 94% efficiency, full stainless steel boiler that heats the floor and provides hot water to the re-circulation pump so you have instant hot water at every faucet.
We fully finish the garage with insulation, drywall, tape, texture, paint and trim. Your garage should never drop below 40 degrees.
