Established as an energy conservation business in 1977, providing insulation for existing homes and new construction.  It was soon apparent that many homes had ventilation, moisture and possible health related problems, as well as quality of work issues for those already retro-fitted by others.  An infrared scanning service was initiated to diagnose those problems and deficiencies.  The company expanded its product line to include spray foam, injected foam, spray and cavity fill fibers and cavity fill expanded polystyrene beads. 

more Background

     "A part of problem solving services is being able to offer the best product and application technique for each situation", which was then and still is now, an underlying philosophy of R.McLagan, Inc.

       Working with architects led to commercial projects and major residential remodeling and additions.  The various skills and abilities of key employees developed into a team effort to expand into new construction with each home being built using available building science knowledge and experience gained from infrared scanning.  
     Each new or existing home that we have worked on, has been a "customized" home for its owners.  Their needs being met with true attention to detail for comfort, durability, efficiency and health.  These are the goals of our home performance services which also embrace green "sustainable" building.

      It has been over 35 years since the "energy crisis" of the 1970's. 
The need for our country to become more energy efficient and independent is now more urgent than ever.  Every home can benefit from a home performance assessment and services - for comfort, safety and efficiency.  This is the first step in a whole house approach to livability and future security.
