Most folks don't understand that heat moves to cold. While hot air rises, and floor radiators work well due to both radiation and convection, ceiling and wall radiators "radiate" down and laterally, respectively. The same happens with heat from your body - it radiates to colder surfaces making you feel cold. Many factors go into a "comfort quotient," however, high-performing windows make a noticeable difference.

In this month's blog post, we dive into how we think there is a better way with ThermalBuck. We answer your questions and explain how the product was designed to solve multiple problems when installing windows with continuous insulation and/or rainscreens. It extends the mounting point of windows & doors to create a flush plane for cladding.
