Healthy Custom Home Applications
New construction homes come with certain challenges. Although foam insulation is a very popular application today, there are drawbacks when it comes to safety, increased cubic footage, the transferring of sound from the attic through the ceiling and the vulnerability to be poorly applicated. Since R-Value is only a measurement, it doesn’t tell the full story regarding the efficiency of different products.
Natural materials like cellulose & cotton insulate better than petroleum based man-made mineral fibers & foam. There is no off gassing, no requirement for “Hazmat” protective suits & it’s not necessary to abandon your home-site for at least a month to allow the material to cure. Nothing TOXIC!

Because of this, control joints are not needed. Substrate preparation that is normally required for plaster based products is not needed, which saves considerable cost and time on projects. A minimum of a Level 4 finish is required for a smoother look.
SonaKrete® is a high performance, Class 1 Fire Rated, acoustical finish system. It is available in white, arctic white and specially matched colors, providing for an exceptional range of design options. SonaKrete® conforms easily to complex or irregular* surfaces.
