We hear more and more examples every day of how our products are helping contractors, homeowners and architects achieve extreme energy-efficient standards defined by groups like Passive House, Living Building Challenge and LEED.
The most recent example is a house on Old Hopkins Road in Clarksville, Md. Homeowner Edward Gaddy set out to build a house meeting the performance standards of all three of those entities for his own personal pursuit. When it’s completed (Gaddy says he hopes this will happen around mid-April of this year), Gaddy will live in the house himself.
Gaddy is extremely pleased with the performance of PROSOCO R-GUARD® products used on the home, including FastFlash®, Joint & Seam Filler, Cat 5 and AirDam, as well as the assistance he received from Demian Weaver, PROSOCO sales manager for the Mid-Atlantic region.
Those products helped the project become pre-certified by the Passive House Institute, and the other certifications are pending, Gaddy adds.
Others involved in the project are:
- Maryland Custom Builders
- Miche Booz Architects
- Peter Doo and Ryan Montoni (Living Building Challenge consultants)
- Michael Hindle (Passive House consultant)
