CertainTeed Insulation Helps Keeps Wall Cavities Dry
Responding to the rising interest among home buyers in green home building trends, particularly those that are related to their concerns over rising energy costs, CertainTeed Corporation recently introduced DryRight™ Fiber Glass Insulation, a unique three-in-one product that provides exceptional thermal and acoustical performance along with moisture management benefits.
DryRight is faced with MemBrain™, CertainTeed’s patented vapor retarder that changes its molecular permeability under varying humidity conditions to allow wall cavities to stay dry and help reduce the risk of mold and mildew. In recognition of its positive impact on indoor air quality, DryRight has earned GREENGUARD™ certification.
“Although DryRight costs slightly more than conventional insulation, it will pay for itself many times over through greater customer satisfaction, fewer callbacks and long-term peace of mind,” says Howard Deck, president of the manufacturer’s Insulation Group.
As with traditional insulation, DryRight acts as a thermal blanket to keep buildings warm in the winter and cool in the summer, lowering year-round energy bills.
For added convenience, the product is available in both batts and rolls for quick and easy installation.
To assist builders, CertainTeed also offers technical support through a team of building science experts who can assist in designing and building durable, comfortable and energy-efficient homes.
Headquartered in Valley Forge, Pa., CertainTeed is a member of the National Council of the Housing Industry — The Leading Suppliers of NAHB.
