Green Building Solutions has developed
its own line of EPS sheet construction material, that is useful
in a variety of ICF and non-ICF construction projects.
We are pleased to
announce that we will now be offering Expanded Polystrene (EPS)
sheet goods for under slab or any other insulating application.These
sheets are typically 2 1/2" X 4' X 4' with an "R rating"
of 10, though custom thickness and sizes are also available.

The building materials that Green Building Solutions uses
in our client projects is "greener" than many of the alternatives
on the market used for insulating homes to achieve a higher "R-factor."
How can this be if both materials achieve a similar "R-factor?" The
answer lies in the environmental impact of each product long before it is ever
used in construction, back at the time of original manufacture.
Our building materials incorporate an expanded polystyrene foam (EPS)
which is much friendlier to the environment than extruded polystyrene
(XPS) and spray polyurethane foam (SPF) insulating products that are commonly
used in commercial and home insulation projects. When it comes to "going
green" not all insulating "foams" are created equal, as the following
