Long Island’s Exclusive Dryvit Supplier
Century Building Materials is proud to be the exclusive Dryvit supplier on Long Island. While most homes and commercial buildings use insulation in the interior of their structure, Dryvit is an exterior insulation and finish system (EIFS). It’s also called “outsulation”. Dryvit has been a leader in exterior insulation since 1969 and one in every eleven commercial buildings in the U.S. features Dryvit products.
Rather than placing pieces of insulation between the exterior walls and sheetrock, Dryvit is installed on the outside against the frame of homes or buildings. In addition to insulating the structure, Dryvit acts as the exterior of your building serving the same purpose as traditional vinyl siding or brick.
At Century Building Materials, we are experts on Dryvit products. We have an onsite facility that’s plugged into Dryvit’s database, giving us the ability to store and mix products in thousands of colors. If you have questions about Dryvit, ask us. Our staff has received training on Dryvit products at the company’s headquarters in West Warwick, Rhode Island.
Energy Efficiency of Dryvit Insulation
One of the greatest benefits of Dryvit is its energy efficiency. As a better alternative to traditional insulation, Dryvit lowers costs for businesses and reduces monthly heating and cooling bills for homeowners. It has proven to lower heating consumption by 23.5 percent and cooling consumption by 17.8 percent.
Installing Dryvit will leave a carbon footprint that is nearly five times smaller than the carbon footprint left by a clay brick veneer and nearly three times smaller than the carbon footprint of conventional stucco.
