Saving energy and enhancing the appearance of your siding is only half the story.
Your home can breathe easier with Linebacker!
Why Does My Home Have to Breathe?
Did you know that the average family of four can produce up to 4-6 gallons of water vapor inside a home every day? This water vapor is generated from activities such as cooking, showering and cleaning. When adding insulation to the outside of your home, you are making it tighter to increase its energy efficiency, and you have to be sure not to stop moisture from being able to escape.
The problem is that other insulation products can prevent this moisture from escaping, actually trapping the moisture in the wall system. This is one of the causes of mold and mildew inside the home where you can see it, and inside the walls where it remains hidden. Moisture damage in the wall can create an expensive repair nightmare long before you even know it’s there.
