Dan’s expertise is focused on energy-efficient and green-building practices, with an emphasis on moisture management in wall assemblies. His knowledge includes passive house and net-zero energy design principles, having worked on multiple projects in those arenas. Dan is also a certified Project Management Professional (PMP).
Edelman looks forward to taking on the challenge of managing ThermalBuck’s rapid growth in the high-performance building material industry.
ThermalBuck falls into an unusual category of the building material market – there’s nothing quite like it.
Use of exterior insulation on residential and commercial buildings is a growing practice in construction, for its ability to limit thermal bridging.
But it creates a new challenge – now that the insulation extends anywhere from 1.0″ to 6.0″ or more past the sheathing, how do you mount the windows?
Before ThermalBuck, the only option for architects and builders to extend the rough opening was to build a wood buck out of 2 x’s or plywood. Rough openings have always been the weakest spot on any building for air and water infiltration, and “bumping” the window out only makes it more difficult to achieve a good air and water seal. Wood bucks are a challenge to flash, and they can rot, shrink, or warp over time.
“Dan offers an impressive background in building science, and a passion for providing solutions to architects and builders. We’re excited to have Dan join our team to manage the growth of ThermalBuck.”
– John Brooks, President, BRINC Building Products, Inc.
“The European and Canadian building markets have long recognized the need to build tighter, well-insulated homes,” said John Brooks, President of BRINC Building Products, Inc.
Driven both by the adoption of newer IECC codes, and an increased focus on energy-efficient building, use of continuous insulation is rapidly growing across the United States, according to Brooks.
“Architects and builders are looking for solutions on how this affects the window installation,” said Brooks, “ThermalBuck is the ideal solution.” And Dan Edelman is the ideal person to manage it’s growth, Brooks said.
“Dan offers an impressive background in building science, and a passion for providing solutions for his customers. We’re excited to have Dan join our team to manage the growth of ThermalBuck.”
