Polyurethanes in commercial applications

Buildings account for almost 40 percent of the total energy consumed in the U.S.  In commercial buildings, heating, cooling and ventilation consume 34 percent of the energy used onsite.  The building envelope provides a boundary between the interior of the building and the outdoor climate, and is designed to perform as an effective thermal barrier, maintaining a comfortable indoor environment.  Foam plastic insulation products like polyisocyanurate foam provide some of the highest thermal resistance values, contributing to high energy efficient building envelopes.  Artector, Inc. is a certified installer of such systems.  Let us improve the thermal efficiency of your building!  Conserve natural resources, and save money!

Artector understands…

Artector understands that construction means more than simply following drawings and making sure a structure is up to code.  It is about making the architect’s and client’s vision come to life.  This means that details are as important as the bigger picture – the way a joint fits together, the careful installation of materials to showcase their beauty, the tweak of the exterior envelope systems to ensure maximum operational efficiency.


Doing business with excellence isn’t complicated, but it’s hard work!!  When you show up, work hard, meet deadlines, and make people happy, there’s almost no ceiling to the money you can make…


At Artector, sustainable construction is about more than just meeting certain requirements; it is about looking at the project as a whole from design to completion and finding areas where we can reduce our impact on the environment while remaining fiscally responsible.

Artector – what’s in a name?

Delivering stellar quality construction and maintenance safely on every project, Artector is able to remain on top of a very competitive industry.  Even the company name is a testimony to the service it provides.

Artector’s pledge!

Customer’s Thank You

It’s particularly delightful when you open up the daily mail and find a “thank you” note from a customer.  Many of us go through life, both personal and professional without stopping and putting forth effort to thank those who have given you particular satisfaction.  Today, we are pleased to share with you a letter from E.E.S. (Evergreen Environmental Services, Inc.) where Joe Hemple, Construction Manager, committed the following words to paper:  “Dear Anya, Evergreen Environmental Services Inc. (EES) would like to express our thanks to your company for the professionalism, the quality of product and installation as well as the time frame at which your company completed both the stucco and brick veneer on this project.  Your company was by far our best subcontractor on this job.  Your people were hard working and followed all Safety requirements as required by WISHA / OSHA.  EES looks forward to working with your company in the future.  Regards,” signed and dated.  This note was in reference to Jacksons # 500 in Battle Ground, WA.

Thank you Joe for being hearty in your approbation and lavish in your praise.  We will continue to make you proud.
