COBOURG, ON, July 14, 2011 /CNW/ - Qualified Remodeler, an industry leading publication for the professional remodeling and renovation market has announced this year's Remodeler's Choice Top 100 Products. reFIT by ARXX was a top 5 pick and was awarded a gold ribbon for receiving the most reader inquiries from the May issue of Qualified remodeler, making it the Remodelers' Choice.
"We designed reFIT using the technology of our Insulating Concrete Form (ICF) products to provide an easy-to-install, energy-efficient and cost-effective way to finish basements and interior spaces," said Gael Mourant, President & CEO of ARXX. "At ARXX, we're dedicated to providing energy-efficient building materials that advance building science. reFIT is a perfect example of our innovation and commitment to offering customers practical products that are affordable and provide added value to both the homeowner through energy savings and the contractor through reduced labor and materials. We're really excited that reFIT has been so well received," she added.
The reFIT system is made from interlocking expanded polystyrene (EPS) panels, the same water resistant material as ICFs, providing a defense against mold, mildew and rot and eliminating the need for an additional vapor barrier. It's flexible and adaptable for use with all common types of foundation walls and has a patented shim system that ensures a plumb finished wall. A reFIT wall provides a continuous R-value of 13.9, eliminates thermal bridging and helps to seal foundation walls from unwanted air infiltration, helping to control temperature variations and reducing monthly heating and cooling costs. The reFIT panel has embedded fastening strips to attach gypsum board directly to the panel without additional framing or furring strips.
