Following is more info about the DecaHome.
The roof surface can be made durable and leak free by sealing the surface
with overlapping 24" wide strips of 60 mil Ultra-Ply TPO by Firestone
The outside edges of the laps are fused with a heat gun and roller.
Heat welding/fusing the seams actually molecularly bonds the surfaces.
The outside surface of the walls may be clad with your siding of choice.
In humid climates it is good to ventilate under the exterior siding.
In all climates it is good to also ventilate under the roof covering.
On the walls and roof, wood strips are attached over sheeting to create an airway.
At the lower perimeter of the wall screening or Coravent
is installed so insects can not enter the ventilation space.
Full wall and roof ventilation feature of the DecaHome has several benefits.
1. Heat is ventilated away to reduce AC costs.
2. The ventilation air space creates a buffer space that helps insulate.
3. The ventilation space dries unwanted moisture to inhibit mold.
A home built with DecaHome frame kit is a special kind of round home
that has been comprehensively designed to be energy efficient, storm safer,
economical and a joy to live in.
