DuPont Tyvek DrainWrap Enhances Home Drainage
During a spring downpour, do you ever wonder what the deluge is doing to your house? You no longer need to worry! We now carry DuPont™ Tyvek® DrainWrap™, an engineered weather barrier that builds on the weather-resistive properties of DuPont 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. DuPont Tyvek 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 and is available in 9’x125′ and 10’x125′ sizes.
DuPont Tyvek DrainWrap can help enhance drainage behind claddings including primed wood (all six sides), fiber cement siding and foam board applied over flat substrates. According to ENERGY STAR®, “sealing the building envelope is one of the most cost-effective ways to lower the home’s utility bills and improve comfort.” With DuPont Tyvek DrainWrap, you get not only the most advanced weather-resistant protection available in a weather barrier; you also get the peace of mind that comes from working with DuPont and ENERGY STAR.
In addition to introducing DrainWrap to our Tyvek line, we are also pleased to now offer larger size Tyvek® HomeWrap®, including 9’x100′, 10’x150′, 10’x100′ and 10’x150′. Tyvek house wraps help prevent outside water from entering the walls and help to seal the home to keep outside air where it belongs.
