Walmart goes green in Texas

We applied cour RCC to 5 Walmart superstores in Texas.  Worked great and they wanted it.  Then they wanted to know our costs on everything and said they would pay us 15% above cost.  We told them to take a hike.  They also took FOREVER to pay us. The article is attached.See More

I have had a handful of folks on this forum tell me, in effect,  that an RCC can do a very good job of insulating a wall with no R-rated insulation in it.  However, if there is R-rated insulation, the RCC will do very little.I have to strongly disagree with that opinion.I will cite the following case here.  My apologies for it not being a residential energy upgrade. This picture is the main sanctuary of the Mt. Pleasant Missionary Baptist Church in Dennison, Texas.  …See More

"I agree and studies done will agree with you in those cases too - it makes sense when there is little to no insulation in the wall. You got a bigger piece of pie to bite from. Small pie, small bite."

"This call will provide an overview of the revised requirements for ENERGY STAR labeling of roofing products. The focus will be on the certification and verification processes. Beginning January 2011, labeling requires third- party…
