Bituminous waterproofing systems are designed to protect residential and commercial buildings. Bitumen (asphalt or coal-tar pitch) is a mixed substance made up of organic liquids that are highly sticky, viscous, and waterproof. These systems are sometimes used to construct roofs, in the form of rolls.
HVAC systems are used in both commercial and residential buildings, from offices to factories, hotels to homes. They’re a big factor when it comes to the overall comfort of your home or building. Adding HVAC insulation can help improve that comfort and even lead to lower utility costs.
Insulation specialists use the term, “thermal envelope” or “building envelope” to describe the conditioned space inside a building suitable for humans. The lack of natural airflow in a building creates the need for mechanical ventilation and high humidity, which results in condensation, rotting materials, and microbial growth like mold.
