Parex USA, Inc. the parent company of leading building material brands; Parex, Teifs, LaHabra, El Rey Stucco, and Merkrete today announced the launch of the new California Energy Code and Parex USA Solutions brochure.

This piece clearly explains the new code and how continuous exterior insulation helps meet the requirements of Title 24 in California. The use of energy is rapidly moving to the forefront of the construction industry. Construction of new structures has a direct impact on the environment as buildings are the single largest consumer of energy. The United States is experiencing a strong move toward regulations that promote high efficiency structures. California has taken the lead and enacted regulations of significance for new construction of commercial and residential buildings.

"Everywhere you look the impact of energy usage and environmental concerns can be seen and felt,” Quenton Roehricht, Brand Manager, commented. “With structures accounting for the vast majority of energy use it is imperative from an operating cost perspective and environmental stewardship that we seek ways to limit the amount of energy consumed by the structures in our country.”

The new requirements make it nearly impossible for many climate zones in California to meet code without the use of continuous insulation. The new brochure outlines how Parex USA’s EIFS and Insulated Stucco Assemblies provide an easy solution. Also included is an easy to understand method of determining how much continuous insulation is needed.

“In California, Part 6 of Title 24 is having a significant impact on energy usage of new buildings,” Roehricht continued.” This piece was developed to help the building community understand how these changes may impact them and the solutions that Parex USA can provide to help them achieve meeting these new requirements."
