Insulation & Weatherization

Your home has a thermal envelope; this includes the walls, windows, roof, doors, and even weather stripping and caulking. Basically, everything that keeps the outside elements from getting inside. If you don’t keep these areas in check, your heating and cooling bill can go through the roof, and can affect your home’s comfort level and even the value.


When you understand the elements, you can create insulation that ensures a high level of comfort in your home, because it controls many factors such as moisture, acoustics, air, and thermal performance. The products we carry are truly remarkable at doing all factors listed, and you wouldn’t want anything less for your biggest investement. So let Ridout Lumber provide you with that key component to making your house more energy efficient.
