The methods adopted to meet the 2009 IECC stipulations are distinctive to climate zones and would probably have the option of cavity wall insulations as well as external wall insulations. The quantity of exterior or cavity wall insulation would be determined by the climate zone and the construction method.

GreenGuard materials enhance the energy efficiency and strength of buildings. The sustainability goal of the products helps builders and contractors to obtain green corroboration with optimal use of materials, best construction habits, and increased power savings.
