For its report, Residential and Commercial Insulation 2012, Principia conducted direct interviews with 200 professionals representing building product manufacturers, wholesalers, distributors, dealers, builders, contractors, and installers.
Ken Jacobson, partner at Principia, said, “The shift to more stringent codes will drive the trend to higher R-values overall. Foams, which have a higher share in high-R value applications, will be the major beneficiaries of this trend. Fiberglass will show the most growth in residential walls and vented attics. Foams will show growth on the residential side in walls, vented and non-vented attics, and continued significant growth in commercial roofs.”
