NASA developed: Paint on the Insulation

Insuladd® is a unique blend of ceramic microspheres designed to be mixed into ordinary house paints and reduce heat gain (heat absorption) and heat loss in your home. What does Insuladd® Do?

Insuladd® will greatly reduce heat loss (heat absorption) and heat gain from your home by decreasing the AMOUNT of heat that is absorbed by the walls, ceilings and roofs of your home. Insuladd® will reduce heat absorption and keep heat out during the summer by making your house paint act as a heat barrier or radiant barrier. During the winter, it greatly reduces heat loss from your home and prevents it from migrating through your homes walls and ceilings and escaping to the cold outside air.

Insuladd® has been in use for a decade sold worldwide. Contractor tested and homeowner approved Insuladd is completely safe and very simple to use.

Home Remodeling Tips

Try as they might, the hardware superstores have thus far failed to teach what architects and designers have to offer: taste. Your return on your remodel will likely depend as much on how well it fits the period and scale of your house as how much it adds to its functionality.
