Insulation
http://www.certainteed.com

CertainTeed is one of America’s leading producers of fiber glass insulation used in Residential, Commercial, and Mechanical/HVAC markets for both new and existing homes and buildings. Our product line includes fiber glass batts, blankets, blowing products, fiber glass insulation for HVAC duct systems and MemBrain™ - The Smart Vapor Retarder. Our insulation products have achieved GREENGUARD™ Certification for superior indoor air quality (IAQ) performance.


MemBrain™: The SMART Vapor Retarder

Basic Use:
CertainTeed MemBrain™ SMART Vapor Retarder is a vapor retarder sheeting intended for use with unfaced, vapor permeable mass insulation (fiber glass and mineral wool) in wall and ceiling cavities.

Benefits:
MemBrain™ SMART Vapor Retarder is a

polyamide film that changes its permeability with the ambient humidity condition. The product’s permeance is 1 perm or less when tested in accordance with ASTM E 96, dry cup method, and increases to greater than 10 perms using the wet cup method. This process allows closed building envelope systems to increase their drying potential with seasonal climatic changes. With a high resistance to water vapor in winter, MemBrain reacts to relative humidity by altering pore size, allowing water vapor to pass through it. When conditions change and relative humidity increases above 60%, the pores in the material expand and its permeability increases. This transformation permits drying to occur, in either direction, through the process of vapor diffusion. Thus, its lowered resistance value supports the drying process, therefore decreasing moisture accumulation within the construction and potential moisture damage.

This product can be used in place of traditional vapor retarders with unfaced fiber glass insulation to provide an insulation system that is ideal in some of the more severe climate condition areas in terms of both temperature and humidity.



SpeedyR™ Tabless Batts

Basic Use:
This product is intended for use in either residential or commercial construction as thermal and acoustical insulation in walls. These batts are designed for use in standard width wood framed construction where a vapor retarder is needed. The batts have kraft-paper facing without flanges and can be friction-fit between wall studs for non-exposed applications.


Benefits:
Installing SpeedyR™ Tabless Batts is an easy, cost effective method to help conserve energy in the residential and commercial new construction, remodeling, and reinsulation markets. In addition to its thermal properties, this product also provides excellent acoustical performance. Installing this product will save time and improve productivity by reducing field labor as stapling is not required because the fiber glass fills the entire cavity. SpeedyR Tabless Batts will not settle or sag.


DryRightTM Fiber Glass Insulation

Moisture that becomes trapped in wall cavities can lead to mold growth and related problems – including structural damage, callbacks and liability issues. DryRightTM insulation from CertainTeed helps reduce the presence of one of the key components for mold and mildew growth – moisture – by allowing excess moisture in wall cavities to escape.


DryRight, available in both batts and rolls, utilizes a unique technology that helps to control excess moisture. When installed properly, DryRight helps wall cavities to stay dry and mold-free – helping you to avoid unhappy customers.


EZR Fiber Glass Building Insulation

Basic Use:
EZR fiber glass building insulation is intended for use in either residential or commercial construction as thermal and acoustical insulation in walls. These perforated mini-rolls are designed for use in standard width wood framed construction where a vapor retarder is needed. The rolls have a tabless kraft facing on one side and a non-woven fabric on the other.


Benefits:
EZR is an enhanced fiber glass insulation product that is easier to use than traditional kraft-faced products. These perforated mini-rolls are ¼" wider providing for a friction-fit staple free installation, saving time and money. Due to the non-woven facing, this product cuts easier, and produces less dust and itch during installation, making it easier to work with. In addition to these features, the rolls are perforated every 93" so they can easily be installed as a batt.


ToughGard®2 Textile Duct Liner

Basic Use:
ToughGard2 Textile Duct Liner is used primarily as an acoustical liner in HVAC sheet metal ducts to absorb unwanted crosstalk, equipment and air rush noise.

This product can be used in most types of comfort heating and cooling duct systems, operating at velocities up to 6,000 fpm (30.5 m/s) and temperatures to 250°F (121°C).


Benefits:
ToughGard2 Duct Liner is more water repellent than standard duct liners. This product is durable, abuse-resistant and easy to clean. In addition, ToughGard2 Duct Liner provides excellent thermal properties, exhibits low air flow resistance and meets all applicable fire resistance standards and building code requirements.

This product has a factory-applied edge coating that assures sealing of the transverse edges as per SMACNA and NAIMA Installation Standards. The product can be precision cut using both manual and automatic cutting equipment.


SpeedyR Bandit™ Band Joist Insulation

Basic Use:
SpeedR Bandit fiber glass building insulation is intended for use in residential construction as thermal insulation in band joist. The product is available unfaced and is designed for use in standard wood stud and TJI assemblies.


Benefits:
Installing Band Joist Insulation is an easy, cost effective method to help conserve energy in the residential new construction, remodeling and reinsulation markets. This product is perforated every 12.5 inches for easy installation.

Gutters
http://www.seamlessgutters.com/

What are Seamless Gutters?

Continuous Rain Guttering, Also known as Seamless Guttering "Seamless Gutters" is nationally recognized as the most popular form of guttering. Seventy-five percent of all guttering installed throughout the nation is continuous. Its popularity is easily understood because...

  • Continuous Rain Guttering, Seamless Guttering, eliminates unsightly seams.
  • Reduces the possibility of leaks.
  • Baked on enamel finish never needs painting.
  • Protects the beauty of your home and landscaping.
  • Formed on the job site for exact measurements.
  • Most jobs are completed in one day.
  • Many colors from which to choose from.

The Purpose of Guttering Systems...

The purpose of guttering systems is to collect water (rain) from the roofing area and disperse the water away from your home. Properly configured downspouts (leaders, drain pipes) are very essential.

A faulty guttering system can contribute to damage to Soffit & Fascia, Shingles, Building Foundations, Driveways, Walkways, Landscaping.

Guttering systems require maintenance to insure protection for your home. Make sure your gutters are free from debris, leaves, granules from shingles, birds nest. The extreme exposure to nature can also cause sealant failures. Snow & Ice can loosen fasteners and should be repaired immediately to prevent costly repairs.

(We always recommend a professional for maintaining your Guttering System)

Types of Seamless Gutters...

There are many different gutter materials to choose from, including steel, aluminum, vinyl, copper. Many types of gutters (steel and vinyl in particular) are sold in 10’ lengths and require dozens of seams fastened with slip fittings, each one is a weak spot and a potential leak site. Another alternative well worth considering is the installation of seamless aluminum gutters. Seamless gutters must be fabricated on-site by a professional contractor.

The term seamless gutters can be confusing because there are seams in the system. The seams are only at the corners and downspout outlets.These joints are fastened more securely and sealed for stability and leak resistance. The Seamless Gutter itself is continuous which makes them both strong and visually more appealing.

Ottawa Fibre Insulation
http://www.ofigroup.com

Corporate Information

Ottawa Fibre Inc. (OFI) is the founding member of the OFI Group of companies. Conceived of in 1976 and up and running by 1980, OFI began manufacturing commercial insulation products. In 1983, OFI began manufacturing residential "batt" insulation for the Canadian market.


Projects

"Attics"

  • There are two ways to approach insulating your attic.
  • The first is to have a contractor blow fibreglass insulation into the attic after both vapour barrier and attic airflow vents have been installed.
  • The second way is to insulate the attic with batts. If you choose the second way, be certain to choose the correct thickness of batts to place in between the joists.
  • READ THE SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS LOCATED ON EACH PACKAGE OF OFI RESIDENTIAL FIBRE GLASS INSULATION.



"Basements"

  • Cover the concrete foundation wall with a moisture barrier such as black asphalt impregnated building paper. Erect a wood or steel stud wall.
  • The black asphalt impregnated building paper will drain any moisture and direct it downwards instead of getting the insulation wet and reducing its insulating power.
  • Use an R8 or an R12 batt and insulate between the studs, from the top of the wall to 18 inches above the floor. (Check local buildings codes - this distance may differ).
  • Cover the insulation and studs with a vapour barrier.
  • Apply a finish of your choice.



"Garages"

  • You can either insulate the entire garage as some people do or you can insulate only the garage wall, which is shared with the main house.
  • Which ever you choose, remember not to put a vapour barrier on the shared wall, since it is already on the warm side of the wall, the side in the house. If you plan to heat your garage, then put a barrier on the inside of all the other walls that are not shared with the main house.



"Walls"

  • If you are building a new home you are in a perfect position to plan exactly how you will insulate it to the max! Of course, if you're new home is built with 2x4's, your regular insulation will be R12 batts, but you can upgrade the job with R13 or even R14, which are designed to fit in the same depth of wall. If you are building with 2x6 wood studs, we recommend R22 batts.
  • Upgrading can potentially save you money on the energy side as well as offering more sound absorption.
  • If you decide to use higher r-value products instead of standard r-values, call your dealer in advance so that he can order them for you.
