RESIDENTIAL/LIGHT COMMERCIAL CONSTRUCTION
Residential and light commercial Type V construction projects present challenges in moisture management, energy efficiency and fire protection. EnergyShield rigid polyiso insulation boards provide excellent R-value for superior thermal protection and options for both vapor-permeable and non-permeable facers. Additionally, EnergyShield insulation board provides a unique level of fire protection, shown in testing to char in place rather than melting or dripping like other types of plastic insulation.
