Your Contractor Questions, Answered

What is the solar heat gain on your skylights?
Solar heat gain varies with the type of skylight you order. Heat gain depends on the type of skylight that is ordered as well as the lens material and glazing. We can help you determine the appropriate choices for your building project.
When it comes to roofing, what are the differences between TPO vs PVC roofing membranes?
The main difference is cost: TPO membranes are less expensive than PVC membranes, and they’re also more eco-friendly. On the other hand, PVC is somewhat more durable and easier to install.
What is the thermal resistance value Oklahoma needs to design for?
Currently, Oklahoma uses the 2015 IBC Building Code which requires R-20 but more people are designing to R-25 standards. Although Arkansas uses the 2012 Building Code, the same standards are advisable in both states.
What exterior wall materials make the most sense for my project?
We offer a very wide range of materials for concrete structures and other building types. It will depend on the specifics of your project, but there is undoubtedly a high-value solution we can find for you. Whether you’re using single skin metal wall panels, composite rain screen panels, or another method, we have you covered.
Are you well versed in Oklahoma’s Building code?
We’re passionate about compliance. At Walco, we take an active stance in understanding IBC code compliance and guiding our clients through it.
