FASTFLASH PROVIDES A CONTINUOUS, AIRTIGHT MEMBRANE TO FILL IN THOSE GAPS BETWEEN THE WINDOW.
The Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 extended and expanded the deduction for commercial building owners who increase energy efficiency by at least 25%, which makes a window replacement a pretty practical decision. Whether it’s part of a building remodel or an energy efficiency update to meet a carbon emissions ordinance, such as New York City’s Local Law 97, an increasing number of building owners are upgrading their windows this year. GET TAX CREDITS FOR WINDOW REPLACEMENTS & EXTEND YOUR SAVINGS WITH 1 SIMPLE STEP
There’s one simple, additional step that stacks the deck in your favor to hit that 25% energy savings mark and provide a competitive advantage when leasing season arrives. After your old windows are taken out and before your new windows are installed, coat the rough opening with a fluid- applied waterproofing membrane like R-Guard FastFlash. How does this process help with energy savings? You don’t need a thermal imaging camera to imagine the areas of a building structure where air is most likely to escape. They are the tiny cracks and openings around windows and doors.
FastFlash provides a continuous, airtight membrane to fill in those gaps between the window and the building materials that make up your building envelope to keep conditioned air in. It’s also breathable, or vapor-permeable, meaning that moisture in the form of vapor inside your wall can naturally escape instead of getting trapped in the wall and causing rot and mold damage. FastFlash is famously easy-to-apply, which equals a quick installation whether your facility manager or a contractor is handling the job. Coupled with its ability to be applied to damp surfaces, FastFlash’s ease of use also means a streamlined installation with minimal disruption to your occupants.
