Make your home energy efficient, from roof to (under) floor

Homeowners, builders and architects can contribute to many energy saving insulating projects from roof to underground in order to boost the energy efficiency of a home.
Reducing energy costs is one of the most important factors in selecting insulation. Heating and cooling can consume 44 percent of all energy used in the home. In cold weather, insulation is used to keep the warm air in. In warm weather, it keeps the hot air out.

The best way to quantify how well building insulation works is by its R-value, which measures its resistance to heat flow. The higher the R-value, the greater the insulating power.
Foamex can offer a range of insulation solutions from roof to floor, including:

Expanded Polystyrene is one of the most versatile and cost effective materials for building and construction applications because of its benefits in product, performance and recycling. Industries all across Australia choose Foamex polystyrene insulation for many reasons:
