Your building envelope is important to us! “What is my building envelope” you ask? The exterior walls of your home. We care so much about the energy performance of your home that our standard construction is 2×6 walls, whereas most builders have 2×4 stud walls. Not only that, we fill the stud cavity of the walls with premium Open Cell Foam. Foam insulation is a product known for stopping air infiltration into a home. Lastly, we wrap your home using Zip Wall Sheeting for a superior weather resistive barrier.
Heartland Builders = 2×6 walls, Open Cell Foam insulation, Zip Wall Sheeting (R-22 + reduced air infiltration)
Most Builders = 2×4 walls, Blown cellulose insulation, OSB Sheeting, See through House Wrap (R-15)
What does all this mean? Personal comfort and lower energy bills.
