A Few Advantages of Installing a Tyvek® HomeWrap®
There are many benefits to installing a house wrap in
general, but you need to consider the product specifications, resistance to
moisture/water penetration, insulation value, breathability and other factors.
For the environmentally conscious homeowner, greener products may also be a
major consideration before deciding on the best product to use for a St. Louis
house wrap installation.
DuPont™ Tyvek® HomeWrap® and other variant products offer many advantages for homeowners. A few of
these benefits include:
- An optimal balance for superior performance regardless of the climate conditions
- Prevention of moisture penetration into the wood, insulation or exterior cladding
- A high insulation value (R-value) that is energy efficient under cold or hot
conditions; using lesser brands can easily affect an overall 30%
reduction in performance
- Protection against high winds and subsequent moisture penetration
- A unique non-woven, microfiber construction that allows moisture vapor to escape,
thus keeping wood an insulation dry, which will reduce mold growth or mildewing
- Effective performance without excess product—two rolls of Tyvek® HomeWrap size
9’ x 150’ are usually sufficient for an average two-story house (25,000 sq. ft.),
although this depends on architecture as well
DuPont™ Tyvek® HomeWrap® is an energy efficient product that is rated quite well.
Tyvek® HomeWrap® is the winner of Green Builder Media’s 2012 Readers Choice
Award in the “Greenest BUILDING WRAP product” category.
Additionally, Tyvek® HomeWrap® “…exceeds
the 2006 International Building Code (section 1403.2) and the 2006
International Residential code (Section R703.1) as a water-resistive barrier,
and meets the air barrier requirements of ICC-ES AC-38 and the ASTM E1677
Standard Specification for a Type I air barrier.”—Tyvek (DuPont) website
