A house wrap has two primary functions: to act as an air barrier and to act as a weather barrier/drainage plane for water.
Without these protections, a home would get wet and if unable to dry itself, it could lead to rot, mildew and mold. We can all agree that none of these things are not desirable for our living spaces. That being said, utilizing a house wrap in the proper manner will effectively protect your home from outside moisture and allow it to operate at peak performance.
Installing a house wrap incorrectly can (and will) cause more problems than it solves, so taking care and getting it right is of the utmost importance. It’s not difficult, just detailed. Installation instructions can be found on our House Wrap Installation Instructions page.
