COMMERCIAL BUILDING ENVELOPE
Robert Rodenhouse, an Aeronautical Engineer founded Rodenhouse Inc. in 1993 to invent fastening systems for exterior building envelopes and facades. Our first focus was rigid foam insulation fasteners found in EIFS or one coat polymer modified stucco systems. Other fasteners include washers for wire & stucco lath attachments, foam core tile backer board, and plaster repair. In the early beginnings, Bob worked long hours and “wore all hats” including stamping out washers on single-out presses and making local deliveries. Today Rodenhouse has a competent staff, multiple cavity stamping presses, and state of the art injection molding machines to keep up with ever increasing demand, while innovation is still the top priority.
In 2017, Altenloh, Brinck & Co. acquired Rodenhouse as strategic way for both companies to grow their fastener portfolio. ABC has long manufactured fasteners for the residential building market, through the SPAX brand, and roofing fasteners through the TRUFAST brand. With the Rodenhouse brand we now have a fastener portfolio for the entire building envelope!
Recently implemented energy codes have changed the insulation requirements for virtually all new construction. With those changes, Rodenhouse has partnered with leading insulation, building wrap, and air/moisture barrier manufacturers and has developed fasteners and tools to rapidly install the material.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
“Dow has tested this system, and the contractor really loves that benefit because it saves them time and money on the installation. This project is being dried in well ahead of schedule due to the benefits of the THERMAX™ (ci) Exterior Insulation Wall System going directly against the steel studs and the combination of the Rodenhouse Thermal-Grip® washer.”
