ESP Low-E Insulation and ESP Low-E House Wrap offer many money and energy saving advantages over regular insulation and house wrap products for both the professional contractor and homeowner.

ESP Low-E House Wrap:
Acting not only as a superior air infiltration barrier, Low-E house wrap effectively seals up cracks or gaps in the external sheathing.  Low-E house wrap also adds another layer of insulation to the exterior of the home, blocking up to 97% of radiant heat.

ESP Micro-E Insulation:
Micro-E® is manufactured using aluminum facings on both sides and is only an 1/8″ thick! Micro-E® can be used as a residential roofing underlayment or as a vapor barrier/insulation behind interior drywall.

ESP Therma Sheet Roof Underlayment
Therma Sheet reflects up to 97% of the radiant heat that is normally transferred into the attic by super-heated roofing materials. Therma Sheet used under your roofing system will help cut your summer air conditioning bills. It greatly reduces attic heat gain making this space more usable and the rest of the house cooler.

ESP Low-E offers insulation for many aspects of your home:

Polar 3/8″ Fanfold
Premium quality polystyrene foam core insulation plus a reflective aluminum facer provides a long lasting high R-Value.

DuPont Tyvek® HomeWrap® delivers the optimum balance of properties for superior performance against the elements. Tyvek house wraps help prevent outside water from entering the walls and help to seal the home to keep outside air where it belongs. DuPont Tyvek® HomeWrap® helps reduce homeowner energy bill because homes stay cool in the summer, warm in the winter and dry all year round.

 

MidAmerica Vinyl Gable Vents
Mid-America Gable Vents offer key features that have become the benchmark in the industry.  Installation is easy with wide nailing flange, leveling lines, adjustable stop gauge and snap-on trim ring.  The patented snap-on trim ring hides rough cuts and reduces installation time, while providing a finished appearance once the vent has been installed.  Mid-America gable vents provide added architectural detail with their woodgrain finish and sharp distinctive features. Choose from the most styles, sizes and colors in the industry to accent your home beautifully.  Gable vents work well in both new construction and remodeling applications.  You also have the option of installing gable vents with a decorative application, when a functioning vent is not required.  Each gable vent has more net free ventilation area for optimal venting than industry standards.  It’s backed by a Limited Lifetime warranty too!

 

Lomanco Aluminum Gable Vents
For a more utilitarian look, Lomanco Aluminum vents offer maximum ventilation with a low-profile look.  All Lomanco Vari-Pitch Adjustable Louvers are constructed entirely of heavy gauge aluminum. Units are completely assembled, ready to install.  To determine the size needed, just measure down along the roofline from the peak of the roof to the frame. The appropriate size louver will adjust to the opening in seconds, and can be installed securely in minutes.

The Lomanco® Series 900 Adjustable Louvers fit roof pitches of 2-1/2/12 to 9/12. The ingenious design actually forces the louver blades to pivot, changing angle as the unit is adjusted. This permits maximum air flow capacity while assuring optimum protection from the weather.

The Lomanco® 100, 150 and 200 Series Rectangular Louvers are heavy gauge, all-aluminum gable vents are tightly constructed with machine tab folds, and feature wide mounting flanges for easy installation. Weather and pest protection is assured.

Solar Star Attic Fans
Heat and moisture are your enemies when it comes to your home. But just because you can’t see them doesn’t mean they aren’t there… hiding in your attic and causing damage.  Solar Star Attic Fans neutralize moisture and drive out heat, keeping your home cool in summer and protecting it from harm during the winter.  Solar Attic Fans are solar powered; if the sun is out, they are running.  No need to worry about turning a fan on or off, or electrical fires caused by faulty or aged wired fans.  Having an attic fan run in the winter, is as important as summer.

Summer means longer days, more sun, and warmer temperatures. If heat isn’t vented from your attic properly, it builds up and causes problems in your home such as hot and uncomfortable living spaces, over-worked air conditioning units and deterioration of roof structures.

With winter comes ice, snow, and cold temperatures. When coupled with excess humidity from showers, humidifiers, and dishwashers, it can lead to problems such as leaks and structural decay triggered by ice buildup on your roof and damage to insulation and framing materials produced by moisture accumulation.

A Solar Star Attic Fan prevents these issues by equalizing interior and exterior temperatures, safeguarding your home from the worst of winter.
