Green insulation we love
Why am I sharing that Roxul recently opened a 700,000 sq.-ft. production facility in Milton? On top of the fact that it will create about 100 new jobs, I think it’s a really good product. Roxul's green insulation is made from a combination of basalt rock and recycled material that’s melted and then spun into fibre which is the bound into a dense, wool-like material. It’s fire-resistant, water-repellent and resists mold and fungi growth. The production process recycles waste material so nothing goes to landfill; storm water is used in the manufacturing process and heat from the production line is recycled to heat the building. Clever, no?
By the way, just because the weather is warm doesn't mean you shouldn't be thinking about insulation. Because folks, you all know what comes after this steamy weather.... In fact, I have an insulation project to get done this summer, which I'll tell you about soon. Stay tuned.
