A “Force Field” for Your House: DuPont Tyvek HomeWrap


From severe thunderstorms to freezing temperatures to extreme heat, houses really take a beating. DuPont™ Tyvek® HomeWrap® delivers the optimum balance of properties for superior performance against the elements. Their house wraps help prevent outside water from entering the walls and help to seal the home to keep outside air where it belongs. Furthermore, DuPont Tyvek HomeWrap helps reduce your energy bill because homes stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter and dry all year round.

But how does this super house “force field” work? DuPont Tyvek HomeWrap helps protect a home against damaging wind and rain that can penetrate through the exterior cladding through its unique nonwoven structure that blocks excess water from entering into walls. The breathable structure of this house wrap allows moisture vapor to pass through to help promote drying in wall systems which can aid in preventing the growth of mold and mildew. Moreover, the unique non-woven fiber structure of DuPont Tyvek HomeWrap stops air movement through the walls helping to provide a more energy efficient home.

We at DIY Home Center are pleased to now offer DuPont Tyvek HomeWrap along with other excellent DuPont products, including StuccoWrap®, Tyvek™ RoofLiner® , Flashing and Tyvek™ Tape. These systems work together to provide superior protection against water and air infiltration. Tyvek products give you what you need to build durable, energy-efficient homes and are backed by a limited warranty.
