TYPAR BuildingWrap

Other weather barriers out there just don't measure up.

Think of it this way. TYPAR® BuildingWrap is more than an extra layer of protection that secures the building envelope from the outside. It's also an added level of assurance that homes and structures will feel more comfortable on the inside.

TYPAR BuildingWrap eliminates drafts in the wall, which helps reduce energy costs. Plus, the TYPAR® material itself will not support the growth of mold or disintegrate over time. And that means more confidence and fewer worries over the long haul.

Install our complete system of TYPAR BuildingWraps, Flashings and Construction Tape and get the backing of a lifetime limited warranty.*
