The Hydrofilament Drainable Housewrap creates a path for moisture trapped behind the cladding to flow freely, ensuring that exterior walls dry quicker. The filaments create a 1 mm gap that makes it the market leader for drainage capabilities among housewraps. When installed, the product ensures that the wall behind the exterior cladding will drain faster and more efficiently, leading to a better building envelope and a wall system that improves the sustainability of the home. The housewrap’s performance characteristics are maintained over time, even after ongoing exposure to wet conditions. The product is a water resistive barrier that resists moisture and air penetration into the building and contributes to a structure’s energy efficiency. Its breathable structure allows moisture vapor from the interior to pass through to help promote a dry wall system. The housewrap comes in 39-inch by 100-foot rolls, with each roll covering 325 square feet. It has a UV rating of 120 days and comes with a limited 20-year warranty.
