Water Out, Performance In
Water can be the downfall of almost any wall system. Properly installed sheathing and water-resistive barriers are critical to a durable, water-resistant exterior. Managing water and air in building enclosures has had several waves of evolution, including the innovation of ZIP System® sheathing and tape. With ZIP System® sheathing, a built-in water-resistive barrier (WRB) eliminates the need to install housewrap and keeps bulk water on the exterior. Completed with advanced acrylic ZIP System™ tape over panel seams, the easy-to-install system helps reduce installation steps, while creating an efficient continuous air and water barrier.
