The advantages of our buildings are:

  1. It will not burn

  2. Termites cannot eat it

  3. You do not have to paint it....ever!

  4. It will not blow down

  5. It will not rot

Wind Load

Our structures have a MINIMUM wind rating of 120 miles per hour and go up depending on the wind zone you live in as defined by the North Carolina Code book.  No matter what wind zone you live in, we have engineered designs to meet the wind load requirements.  ___________________________________________________________________________________________

The insulation used in our buildings is a reflective foil insulation.  It consists of 2 layers of trapped air bubbles sandwiched between a white polyethylene backer and 99.9% pure aluminum front.  It outperforms 6" of mass insulation in all climates, but more especially in hot and humid climates.  It is a great condensation, wind and vapor barrier all in one. 

Advantages of our insulation

  1. reduces heat gain

  2. reduces condensation

  3. bird, insect and rodent resistant

  4. washable interior finish

  5. safe to handle, unlike fiberglass insulation (no worries of kids or pets getting into it!)

Performance of our insulation

  • R-Value = 9.7 downward and 4.4 Horizontal

  • Puncture Resistance = 79.71 PSI

  • Reflectivity = 97%

  • Emissivity = 3%
