The National Energy Code of Canada for Buildings
The National Energy Code of Canada for Buildings (NECB), or regulations that are based on the NECB, are being adopted by many jurisdictions in Canada including Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, Nova Scotia, and Ontario. Regulations are requiring an increasing minimum effective thermal resistance of the building envelope. Continuous insulation is being suggested, in the prescriptive approach, as the solution to meeting this increasing R-value. Dryvit Outsulation®
Systems have been solving this requirement before it was even understood to be a need. In addition to solving the requirements for minimum R-value with its continuous insulation, Dryvit Outsulation Systems include an air barrier, also key in meeting the requirements of the code.
