1st They heat up quickly and lose heat.
The use of STEICO insulation materials has earned our homes a reputation for high energy efficiency. During cold weather, a thick layer of insulation ensures that heat loss is kept to a minimum. In summer, on the other hand, thanks to the phenomenon of phase shift, they provide ideal protection from the heat. The wall at the time of greatest insolation is a barrier against the penetration of heat into the room, and gives up heat when the temperature outside is much lower.
2nd "Leaky houses"
We use high-quality materials when insulating our homes. STEICOprotect exterior facade panel also has windproofing properties. The tongue and groove profile ensures the tightness of the joint. On the inside, meanwhile, we use an active vapor barrier. During the installation of window frames, warm window sills are also installed, which, combined with special tapes, help reduce thermal bridges to a minimum. And a well-insulated house also has good protection against sounds coming from outside.
3rd Generation Homes
Today, high-quality, certified materials are used for the construction of a frame house. They are properly impregnated and protected from the elements. We can confidently say that this is a house for generations. We draw on the experience of Canadians and builders from the United States, where in their countries some frame houses are used for up to 100 years.
Tests on various qualities of insulation have proven that STEICO materials, despite being wood-based, do not burn with live fire. In the attached video, you can see that it takes much longer for the board to fail in a fire test than other materials.
Many people have the misconception that timber-frame houses will be destroyed by the first good windstorm that comes along. The skeleton of the house is assembled using a special fastening system. The foundations are attached to the foundation with special anchors. The walls are rigidly connected to each other without the possibility of any movement. In losing to the elements of wind, the building has comparable strength to that of masonry.
