insult stone-local company solving building issues!! Main The Durable Green Home
local company Insulstone inc . of Meridain Idaho has a great solution to stone interior and exterior applications and adds R-value as well...

I  met with Les Cullen President of Insulstone yesterday to look at the product they have developed for masonry applications for construction. This is a great idea for applying cast stone product to an exterior or interior of the building. what  i loved about it was the ease of installation, cutting down time, mess, etc. The stone is fixed to a foam backer adding R-11 to R-19 to an exterior wall, then is stacked much like legos and attatched to the building over the house wrap using staples through the foam backer. there is a built in water management system ( this is rarely done right on masonry applications these days). the product has a variety of different cast stone looks and seeing it put together I would not have been able tell that it was not a standard cast stone or stone product. Plus you get the added R-value adding to the performance of the wall assembly and home! this is great.

they also have an interior product wich basically applies with adhesive and a sticky strip to interior  surfaces as well. I thought this was a great product that I see solving alot of poor application challenges with the standard stone and cast stone I have seen applied here in the valley. Also the company is local so it is always nice to see something coming from idaho like this. check it out www.insulstone.com
