Eco House Santa Barbara

The Problem

The brief for this stunning Santa Barbara residence construction project was to maximise insulative qualities of the entire building envelope.

The Solution

The WetSuit® System was applied to cover the entire building envelope, wrapped from below ground ICF and CMU, to external ICF walls, flipped over the small parapets, and onto the flat and dome roofs to provide a seamless system for the building from top to bottom. By eliminating historically contested points where different systems and trades interact, the single system envelope is a revolutionary step in warranty source, installation, and performance.

The Result

The client was overjoyed with the result and shared with us the following testimonial…

I am writing to express my experience with the product WetSuit®. We have used it on our new home which is built with insulated concrete forms (ICF) and CMU block. WetSuit® has been applied below grade, behind the retaining wall, on the walls and roof as a monolithic membrane. We are particularly happy about WetSuit® for it’s ability to handle hydrostatic pressure on the retaining walls. We have large retaining walls on half of the house and WetSuit® looks to me to be the best product we could have used for this application. Working with the team has been ease-full and smooth. They are from out of town, but that has not been a problem in their willingness and ability to be here in time and to see that we are happy with the final product and application. Would certainly recommend them for product quality and workmanship as well as reliable waterproofing.
Kind Regards,
