ZIP System® sheathing, AdvanTech® flooring voted No. 1 in quality in BUILDER Magazine


Charlotte, N.C. – April 29, 2015 – For the first time, leading builders have voted multiple Huber Engineered Wood products #1 in their respective categories in esteemed BUILDER Magazine’s annual Brand Use Study. ZIP System® sheathing was named the highest quality exterior wall sheathing. Likewise, AdvanTech® flooring was voted the highest quality oriented strand board – a rank it has secured every year since 2002.

“We believe ZIP System sheathing is the best product of its kind on the market, thanks to its speed and ease of installation, and its 30-year system limited warranty,” said Brent Flotkoetter, general manager of ZIP System sheathing and tape. “It’s incredibly rewarding that builders – the end users of our products – cast their votes to name our product the best in quality in its class.”

ZIP System sheathing and tape is a one-of-a-kind structural roof and wall system with a built-in energy-efficiency barrier that can help safeguard a home against moisture and air leakage.

Award veteran AdvanTech® flooring was also voted No. 1 in quality in the oriented strand board (OSB) category. A standout brand beyond its category, the brand was also ranked No. 3 in overall quality across all 70 building product categories comprised of more than 800 brands.

“We strive to create products our customers can trust,” said Jason Darling, general manager of AdvanTech flooring. “It’s an honor to be recognized for that commitment year after year and to be ranked overall among some of the biggest names in the building products industry.”

AdvanTech flooring combines strength, moisture resistance and installation ease to provide an unbeatably quiet, stiff subfloor.

The Brand Use Study was sponsored by Hanley Wood and BUILDER Magazine and conducted by Readex, an independent research company.
