You may have heard of “R-Value” when researching different types of insulation. R-Value refers to the material’s thermal resistance or in other words, the material’s ability to keep hot or cold air inside or outside of the structure.
Insulating homes can be a frustrating and expensive prospect for some owners. The age of the home and how it was constructed determines the types of insulation needed. In some cases, you might not even be able to add effective insulation without tearing down walls and starting fresh. If that’s the case, GenStone panels can be an option that’s affordable and practical. You can also pair GenStone’s R-Value with vinyl home siding, to help insulate your home, which will help you save energy in extreme temperatures.
When you install GenStone panels, no matter the type, they aren’t actually affixed to the outside of your home or building. Instead, they’re setup on a framework just in front of it so there’s no need to disturb any existing walls or interior framing.
