Columbia Drive Project – August 2011 II

Now that the project has passed all of its City inspections for rough framing, rough electrical, rough framing, concrete footings etc., it is now time for the insulation to be installed.  As you can see from the attached picture, it is extremely important to strengthen and increase the thermal factors of the residence when the opportunity arises.  In this case, the maximum insulating factors have been considered for this residence, which is often dictated by the size of the framing members.  For example, on the 2 x 6 walls thicker insulation with higher thermal factors can be employed versus the smaller framing members, such as 2 x 4.  We always advise our clients to consider the benefits of the new thermal factors that are available now and recommended throughout the entire industry.
