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,…Continue

Hal Skinner replied to Richard Beyer's discussion What's your opinion on the best insulation option for your GREEN attic space?
"Mornin Richard, Maybe 'Options' might be more appropriate here?  We take the path less used in attics.  We spray our RCC on the roof underside and attic walls to reduce heat gain and heat loss.   We also spray the AC…"

Here is a few pictures, a statement and a copy of the electric bill from a homeowner.  He had the interior walls and ceiling painted with the RCC. My first post of the RCC used as interior paint on a church sanctuary raised a few questions I could not answer as the contractor had passed away.  This is a brick house in the same town as that church.  It DOES have R-rated insulation in the walls (the church did not) and ceiling although the owner was unsure of the exact rating of the…See More

"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…
