  • Posted in thread: Window Comparison - Farley vs. Okna on 12-28-2012 at 10:37 AM
    Good Day, Wondering if anyone has any opinions on Farley 7000 casement windows vs. Okna 700
    casement windows. The estimates I have are reasonably equivalent, as is the numerical
    performance. Edge to F...

    There is a paragraph in that second article you linked that leads me to believe that I should
    NOT put foam board on the outside. It makes me question whether or not I should even put up
    another layer ...

    Gary - thanks for the response. Lots of reading material! Appreciate the time it took you to
    put that together. I'll give it all a read and reply back here. Sounds like the spray foam on
    the inside ca...

    Thanks. That link would seem to indicate that my suggested application would be ok. I will
    continue the research and see where I get to.I guess my other question is - given the thickness
    of the walls ...

    Technically - the spray foam does not qualify as a vapour barrier until it reaches a thickness
    of greater than 2 inches. Also - in double wall construction, the position of the plastic
    vapour barrier ...

    G'day, Need some advice on the best way to re-insulate my home during a large scale renovation
    I'm doing next year. The critters have come through the old siding (knot holes, cracks,
    warping) and perf...

  • Posted in thread: Vacuum Insulated Glass on 04-02-2012 at 09:12 AM
    lol - agreed. My guess is that production issues are keeping it from going mainstream. The
    claimed R values are truly impressive though. I need windows before 2014 (or later), so I guess
    these are out...

  • Posted in thread: House Wrap on 04-02-2012 at 06:07 AM
    I thought the purpose of the wrap was to prevent both air and water intrusion? While it allows
    the house to breathe - allowing out some air and moisture - does it not prevent mass intrusion
    of both ai...

    Folks, For clarity - I really am talking about glass that is insulated by a vacuum. Not glass
    that is insulated by replacing the air with another gas. The same principle that is used to
    make a thermos...

    G'day, I'd like to ask a dumb question please... :) (or two...) I am going to be re-siding my
    home next year and replacing all of the windows. As the critters have made a mess of the
    existing house wr...
