Tyvek HouseWrap is probably the most popular brand used in the Cincinnati market today. It is important to note there is a difference in which product to use with your type of siding
Tyvek Housewrap delivers the optimum balance of properties for superior performance against the elements. Our house wraps help prevent outside water from entering the walls and help to seal the home to keep outside air where it belongs. Tyvek helps reduce homeowner energy bill because homes stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter and dry all year round.
Cedar or Cement Siding:
Tyvek DrainWrap is an engineered weather barrier that builds on the weather-resistive properties of Tyvek. It has vertical grooves on the surface to help channel bulk water while allowing water vapor to pass through the moisture barrier, which helps to promote drying in wall systems. DrainWrap is the product choice when enhanced drainage is desired behind claddings such as primed wood, fiber cement siding and foam board applied over flat substrates.
Before you start your siding project, make sure the proper preparations are being taken to ensure a quality job.
