Efficiency on the job and for the home

Uncontrolled air leakage causes more than 30 percent of home energy costs according to the U.S. Department of Education. That’s why architect and designer Lyndl Joseph of Great Seal uses ZIP System® sheathing and tape in her homes. Architects like Joseph are relying more on high-quality, energy-efficient products to achieve certification for strict energy code. Code-compliant ZIP System sheathing and tape creates a rigid air barrier that reduces air leakage, leading to greater efficiency and cost savings for homeowners.

AdvanTech® flooring

Stop squeaky floors in their tracks

You’re tip-toeing around the house, trying to avoid making everyone suffer your early-morning workday start, when “CREEEEEK” – the floor squeaks and your cover is blown. Protection against squeaks starts with a solid base. Squeaks are the result of materials rubbing together underfoot. A high-quality subfloor system helps grip fasteners in place and provide a flat, stiff substrate for floor coverings and connection for floor joists. AdvanTech® subflooring is trusted by companies like Dream Finders Homes to provide dependably quiet, stiff floors for years to come. Featuring a Lifetime Limited Warranty and No Sanding Guarantee, AdvanTech subfloor panels are a core component of quality-built homes for Patrick Zalupski, president of Dream Finders. The company built an estimated 600 homes in 2015 and 100 percent of those used AdvanTech flooring. Zalupski says that “you can really feel the difference with AdvanTech flooring. It’s much sturdier and quieter to walk on.”

Multifamily design has a natural pre-occupation with mitigating sound. High-performance subflooring can contribute to quiet living spaces for both occupants and neighbors below. Janos Spitzer of Janos P. Spitzer Flooring Co. uses AdvanTech® panels in two-layer floating subfloor assemblies in his high-rise residential projects in the New York City area. To limit sound transmission, the subfloor assembly floats above the concrete slab without any mechanical connection. AdvanTech panels are uniquely engineered with advanced resin technology and high wood density for a strong, stiff base that installs fast and stays flat. For Spitzer, AdvanTech subflooring lays the groundwork for his beautiful custom hardwood designs.
