"I think Sean is onto the answer. The blotchyness makes me think they may have used a spray can primer like "Killz" in a can to cover water damage or mold. If they shot it on there thick enough it could create a thermal difference. How did…"

"In existing homes I have not seen the outside air intakes executed very well. Most times they are without dampers. Worse yet, in prefab fireplace configurations they terminate inside chimney chases instead of outside. So they just end up being…"

"Marco, The trouble with the Lock top and Lymance or any top seal damper, is that when you bottle a chimney at the top and leave it open at the bottom, you still leave room for cold air to enter the home through the firebox. Basically the chimney is…"

"Hi Craig, Are you looking for someone to buy out your idea, or to manufacture and market it and give you a royalty kickback as they build the brand? I might know a guy that can show you the way to the latter. If you don't mind me asking...why…"

The RCC Classroom (Radiant Control Coatings)

A group where energy professionals can learn about all the different energy saving aspects of RCCs.  I have worked with one particular RCC for 30 years.  I have amassed alot of information I can share.  Everyone knows, accepts and understands how RCCs work as a 'Cool Roof' coating.  However, that seems to be where the knowledge on these products different energy saving applications abruptly stops.  I hope to change that with this group. There are over 300 protective coatings out there and they…See More
