BC Energy Step Code
Beginning of 2019, municipalities throughout British Columbia will be mandating strict requirements for airtightness. Are you ready for this? What does this mean to you as a builder in Greater Vancouver? Builders must build homes with minimum airtightness requirements of 2.5ACH. Applying traditional materials such as membranes, tapes, and caulking sealants has always been the method of choice when attempting to create an airtight home; however, with the introduction of Step Code, those may no longer be sufficient. The challenge now is to balance efficiency, time, and cost in order to achieve 2.5ACH.
What is your plan going forward into Step Code?
With our specialized application, your home will not only meet, but exceed municipal requirements. In fact, it is possible to completely future-proof your home to Step 5 levels prescribed for the year 2030.
