The Green zip wall is a high performance energy efficient exterior wall sheathing that reduces air infiltration dramatically resulting in lower heating and cooling costs.

Foam attic and R-23 blown in batt fiberglass make for a high performance thermal envelope.

Assure R-23 insulation is blown in to the wall cavities and then cleaned up with a rotary rasp.

Don Mckee, the Guardian rep, shows David Clotz, owner of TCI, how to weigh a test sample of insulation to make sure the application gun is applying the correct density of insulation.

A plug is put into the wall, filled with insulation, then removed to be weighed to make sure the proper density has been achieved.

The Florentino lot in the Moors was a challenge because it had a large diagonal easement along the back and borders the Avalon Blvd right of way.  This home has high performance energy efficient features such as foam insulation, low e windows, and 2 speed heat pump.  It has Storm-Tuff hurricane resistance features and a safe room.  Everything a family needs to be protected from a hurricane or tornado.
