ThermalBuck Goes Rogue with Matt Risinger
Matt Risinger is a well-known talent in the building industry. Not only for his fine craftsmanship as high-end home-builder Risinger Homes, but also as a building science expert and educator.
Based in Austin, Texas, Matt appears at building events and trade shows across the U.S., and creates easy-to-follow, real-world content from his construction sites (that’s a lot of fun to watch) for his avid followers on social media.
Matt recently featured ThermalBuck™ on Risinger Goes Rogue, as a smart, simple solution to the challenges builders face when installing windows with continuous insulation.
Simplify Window Installation
ThermalBuck™ solves multiple problems when using exterior insulation and/or rainscreens. It extends the mounting point of windows & doors, and allows for direct structural attachment. ThermalBuck™ is part of a continuous insulation solution, and an essential part of the efficient building envelope.
The use of a ROESE is recommended by the FMA/AAMA/WDMA 500-16 “Standard Practice for the Installation of Mounting Flange Windows into Walls Utilizing Foam Plastic Insulating Sheathing (FPIS) with a Separate Water-Resistive Barrier (WRB).” Purchase a complete pdf download at either of the links available through AAMA & WDMA.
Improve Performance and Efficiency
ThermalBuck™ simply does more than a wood window buck. It insulates the mounting points of windows & doors, and simplifies flashing. Dimensionally stable and strong, ThermalBuck™ prevents compression of rigid insulation, and helps to maintain the integrity of the window installation.
R-values range from 4.4 to 11. View the results of our thermal testing and see how ThermalBuck™ outperforms wood 2:1.
Build Green and Live Green
Using ThermalBuck™ to improve your window installation means you’ll use fewer natural resources to heat and cool your home year-round. Not only will that save you money, it’s better for the environment too.
ThermalBuck™ reduces thermal bridging and prevents moisture from accumulating, which improves your indoor air quality – and that benefits your family’s health.
