Insulation R-Value Comparison

Learn how GenStone's insulation value compares to other insulation options

What is an Insulation Value?

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.

Is it Possible?

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 case, you might not even be able to add an 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.

It’s Always Possible with GenStone

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.
