Maison 197 Materials

Maison 197 has met many sincere supporters and suppliers . Throughout the process of this renovation, we have met a lot of great people and good suppliers. Some of them are willing to give us helping hands and advice, some of them are very supportive and even participated in our project. We are so grateful to all of their kind contribution in different ways.


Exterior wall and roofing


BP CANADA has contributed a lot to our LEED project in regards to the wall cavities installed in our home. Their R-4 HP exterior insul-sheathing boards and acoustic panels are made from natural wood fibers. These products increase thermal resistance value, contain high water vapor permeance and allow the wall cavities to stay dry while offering soundproofing qualities.

BP has supported us in various aspects, such as local provisioning, use of recycled pre-consumer and post-consumer in the manufacturing process as well as absence of urea formaldehyde and no volatile organic compound.

ROXUL Inc. is part of ROCKWOOL International of Denmark, the world's leading producer of stone wool insulation made from natural stone and recycled slag. We have used ROXUL's natural insulated materials, which provide superior thermal properties, sound absorbency, fire resistance and water repellency. These combined benefits provide superior energy efficiency in buildings and homes for comfortable indoor environment for occupants while reducing heating and cooling expenses.
