Scope of Work
For this job our partners art Karon Masonry, referred our services to the General Contractor Oak Contracting Corporation, who asked us to install an air barrier system along with the spray foam insulation. Air barrier systems are a central component of any building envelope system, and its primary vocation is to address air flow between a building and the outside environment. Air diffuses through surfaces like concrete block and channels through imperfections between building materials, but easy to install air barrier system redirect the air flow back and can significantly reduce a building’s energy consumption In addition to the typical application as an interior insulation product,the use of SPF on the exterior of the building for added energy efficiency. The mass walls used in the school’s construction are sturdy and durable, but they are also prone to moisture intrusion and air infiltration.
