Insulation doesn’t always mean foam! Mighty Energy is proud to sponsor many of the NW EcoBuilding Guild’s Education Sessions and this month the topic is innovation in insulation practices and going foamless. As always, this will be a great opportunity to network and learn more in the green building world. We hope to see you there!
As we better understand moisture in buildings, alternatives to foam become more appealing for a number of reasons. Perfect installations, the right insulation products and great building practices can contribute to longevity and durability in buildings. Come learn about alternatives to foam insulation and when they are appropriate.
