Additional Excel Homes Built Green Standards

Delta Wrap is a premium, non-toxic, environmentally friendly waterproofing material that will not react or breakdown. Comes with a 20-year product warranty. Keeping ground moisture away from the foundation of your home will reduce interior dampness and musty odours. 

Excel meets industry standards and replaces batt insulation with spray foam insulation in the following areas: Under bonus rooms: 0.5 lb., R28 Cantilevers: 2 lb., R28 Rim joists and joist ends in basements and second floors: 2 lb., R20. A superior product to batt insulation, spray foam acts as a unique air and moisture barrier in one. It will not break down or shift over time and helps to maintain a more consistent R-Value, which will create a more energy efficient home. 

Excel uses exterior caulking at the intersection of the exterior walls and sub-flooring to ensure a proper air seal. By creating a better seal and allowing less cold air in, your home will be more comfortable and energy efficient. 

Excel uses a stronger sulphite resistant concrete mixture of 32 MPA, type 50. A higher MPA value ensures a more durable concrete for your home’s footings. Using a sulphite resistant concrete also helps to reduce build times, as all new construction requires an engineered administered sulphate test. 

Excel uses 42” long insulation stops to achieve a longer extension above the attic insulation. The extended vertical length will help direct airflow further into your attic, eliminating wind vortexes. This helps keep the insulation in place, allowing it to work to its full capability while also reducing maintenance. 

Most of Excels floors are designed at a 1mm (.0625”) flex over a 720mm (28”) span. The flooring in your home will have less give/bounce over a larger distance, which will help reduce floor noise (squeaking) over time. 

Envelope Sealant. Envelope sealant is a superior product not required by code. Using it provides your home with better protection against wind driven rain, which will help reduce water penetration and leaks. 

Excel uses R40 insulation. Having a higher rated insulation in your attic will reduce heat loss, which will help to lower your heating bills.
