Material Efficiency

Renewable:

OSB is made from Young Trees and Undesirable Parts of Lumber Trees

OSB is made from Young Trees and Undesirable Parts of Lumber Sized Trees

Wood products use the least energy to extract of any building material.  Wood regenerates, but the need for old-growth timber can still create a supply and demand issue.   Fortunately, OSB can be made from fast growing, farmed trees, that reduce the demand for old growth timber.

Recyclable Foam:

While we can not use recycled Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) due to its lack of strength in our structural panels, the EPS foam can be recycled to make packing materials and many other useful products. The Polyisocyanurate (PIR) we use is up to 25% recycled[1]

Less Construction Waste on Site:

With pre-cut panels ready to build there is very little construction waste to manage at the job site.
