Green Building Solutions has developed its own line of EPS sheet construction material, that is useful in a variety of ICF and non-ICF construction projects.

We are pleased to announce that we will now be offering Expanded Polystrene (EPS) sheet goods for under slab or any other insulating application.These sheets are typically 2 1/2" X 4' X 4' with an "R rating" of 10, though custom thickness and sizes are also available.

Why is Expanded Polystyrene foam (EPS) "greener" than other foam insulating alternatives?

The building materials that Green Building Solutions uses in our client projects is "greener" than many of the alternatives on the market used for insulating homes to achieve a higher "R-factor."

How can this be if both materials achieve a similar "R-factor?" The answer lies in the environmental impact of each product long before it is ever used in construction, back at the time of original manufacture.

Our building materials incorporate an expanded polystyrene foam (EPS) which is much friendlier to the environment than extruded polystyrene (XPS) and spray polyurethane foam (SPF) insulating products that are commonly used in commercial and home insulation projects. When it comes to "going green" not all insulating "foams" are created equal, as the following article details.
