Adding On? Replacing Siding? Use This Step to Ensure a Healthy Home

 

Thank you to DuPont™ for sponsoring this post. 

 

 

Spring and summer are the best times to take on those outdoor home projects. Completing an addition or installing new siding are two upgrades that yield a great return on investment.

 

If you’re planning one of these projects this year, why not take an extra step in ensuring a healthy home by adding or reapplying house wrap? This one step can make a big difference in keeping your home healthy for years to come.

 

The primary purpose of a house wrap is to prevent air penetration and water damage in the walls of your home. Rain, snow, and cold winds can cause huge problems in your home over time. Rot, mold, and other issues can occur if an adequate barrier is not present.

 

Just like with new siding and room additions, adding house wrap is something that you do not want to take shortcuts on. There are a ton of exterior sheathing ‘systems’ available on the market that claim to offer good protection for your home.

 

However, there is nothing as good as DuPont™ Tyvek® when making the important decision to build a healthy home, addition or when replacing siding. Tyvek® is the standard by which all air and moisture barriers are measured for the past 30 years.

Not only does it deliver excellent overall performance, it’s also strong and durable enough to stand up against the construction process after installation. In other words, you won’t have to worry about it being compromised during your siding or home addition projects.

 

In fact, Tyvek® is voted best in the market by builders for 20 consecutive years. It is an excellent weather barrier that far exceeds anything else out on the market today. While there are lots of impostors, there simply are no substitutes for Tyvek® house wrap. You can trust Tyvek® to give you a healthy home.

Whether you live in the Midwest like I do, or in other areas across the country, you never want to take shortcuts with the health of your home.  Make exterior house sheathing a part of your outdoor home remodeling plans. As the volatile weather of spring and the cold of winter arrive later down the line, you’ll be glad that you did.
