Included in Ichijo’s homes are $7,000 worth of upgrades for Rain Screen Systems! The Rain Screen System on the wall panels has many benefits including:
• Allows for rain water drainage and evaporation by creating a break between the siding and sheathing; protecting your home from the elements.
• Reduces hot OR cold air movement through the wall creating a more comfortable environment and saving you money at the same time by reducing your energy bill.
Also, the additional 2” EPS (Expanded Polystyrene) exterior insulation increases the R value from R21 to R29 saving you even more money with 15% less heat loss than a standard home. This additional exterior insulation can be seen on our panelized homes in Grand View Meadows and upcoming communities.
