Keep Your Cool in the Summer; Stay Warmer in Winter with DOW TUFF-R
If you are remodeling your home, replacing a roof, or adding new siding, it’s the perfect time to add insulation. Insulation helps to improve the energy efficiency of your home. Using a rigid insulation product like DOW® TUFF-R™ makes it easier to install than spray or blown insulation or traditional batts.
TUFF-R can be applied directly to a variety of surfaces. It’s easy to handle, and easy to cut with a sharp utility knife. Available in 4’ X 8’ panels, in thicknesses from 1/2” to 2”, TUFF-R insulation boards add anywhere from R-3.3 to R-13 to your assembly.
Every homeowner knows the term R-value, but what’s it all about?
R-value is a measure of thermal resistance, or of the ability of a material or surface to conduct heat. The higher the R-value, the more resistant that material or surface is to the transfer of heat. If your home is new, and passed all of its code inspections, you most likely have the right amount of insulation prescribed by your local building department. Older homes may benefit from adding insulation. Find out how much insulation you need by taking a look at the International Building Code or contact your local building department.
