TYPAR HouseWrap

A key component of the TYPAR Weather Protection System to incorporate into your home plans to assure long-term client satisfaction and reduce your risk of callbacks for moisture intrusion and damage.

Start now to reduce the risk of moisture damage and mold growth.

Think of TYPAR HouseWrap as an extra layer of protection to secure the building envelope. With TYPAR HouseWrap on the outside, homes feel more comfortable on the inside. TYPAR HouseWrap eliminates drafts in the wall, which helps reduce energy costs. And the TYPAR material itself will not support the growth of mold or disintegrate over time, for added confidence and reduced worries. TYPAR HouseWrap offers superior protection that you can count on.

And it’s all backed by The TYPAR Advantage, which provides the confidence of millions of homes/buildings wrapped, over more than 25 years of proven performance, and a 10-year limited warranty/lifetime limited product warranty (for single-family residents only).

TYPAR HouseWrap delivers four key advantages you won?t find with other housewraps:

  • Superior water holdout - blocks water from entering the wall cavity.
  • Exceptional moisture vapor transmission (MVT) - it breathes so moisture can escape the wall cavity.
  • Superior tear strength - proven to withstand heavy winds and is almost five times stronger than the leading competitive wrap.
  • Optimal surfactant and UV resistance - reduces the damaging effects that oils and tannins from cedar siding, cement siding, stucco, brick and soaps from powerwashing can have on the system?s ability to block bulk moisture penetration; stands up to the beating sun on the jobsite for up to 6 months without degradation.
