Dupont Tyvek House Wrap

DuPont™ Tyvek® HomeWrap® delivers the optimum balance of properties for superior performance against the elements. Our house wraps help prevent outside water from entering the walls and help to seal the home to keep outside air where it belongs. DuPont™ Tyvek® HomeWrap® helps reduce homeowner energy bill because homes stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter and dry all year round.

How It Works:

 
DuPont™ Tyvek® HomeWrap® helps protect a home against damaging wind and rain that can penetrate through the exterior cladding.

 

 


  The unique nonwoven structure of DuPont™ Tyvek® HomeWrap® blocks excess water from entering into walls.

 

 

 
The breathable structure of this house wrap allows moisture vapor to pass through to help promote drying in wall systems which can aid in preventing the growth of mold and mildew.

 

 


The unique non-woven fiber structure of DuPont™ Tyvek® HomeWrap® stops air movement through the walls helping to provide a more energy efficient home.

 


Supporting you throughout the entire building process.

 DuPont™ Weatherization Systems are an important part of the ENERGY STAR® Home Sealing labeling program and NAHB Green Home Building Guidelines.   According to ENERGY STAR®, “sealing the building envelope is one of the most cost-effective ways to lower the home’s utility bills and improve comfort.” With DuPont™ Tyvek® HomeWrap®, you get not only the most advanced weather-resistant protection available in a house wrap moisture barrier; you also get the peace of mind that comes from working with DuPont and ENERGY STAR®.  When installed as an air infiltration barrier, DuPont™ Tyvek® may help contribute towards U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) points and may help the home owner to qualify for an energy tax credit.


The performance of DuPont™ Tyvek® HomeWrap® exceeds the 2006 International Building Code (section 1403.2) and the 2006 International Residential code (Section R703.1) as a water-resistive barrier and meets the air barrier requirements of ICC-ES AC-38 and the ASTM E1677 Standard Specification for a Type I air barrier.   DuPont™ Tyvek® HomeWrap® comes backed by a 10-year limited warranty from DuPont, a company dedicated to providing you with innovative and reliable products for over 200 years.  Our DuPont Certified Installer Program also provides trained installation services, which is one more way to put the building science expertise of DuPont right at your fingertips.


Perforated Wraps

   
A perforated wrap is a two-layered product that requires “micro-perforations” or thousands of holes to allow the product to breathe. Unfortunately, there is a trade-off between air resistance, water resistance and moisture vapor permeability with a perforated housewrap.


Low Perm Microporous Film Wraps

   
A low perm microporous film wrap is manufactured in a two-part process where a course fabric backing with no protection for a building is laminated with a fragile film in order to pass minimum requirements for water and air resistance. The film layer is delicate and routinely compromised in the real world through tearing and abrasion.


DuPont™ Tyvek® is Very Different!

    
The DuPont™ Tyvek® Weatherization System consists of products specifically designed for proper moisture management within wall systems. DuPont™ Tyvek® is a uniquely engineered product made by spinning extremely fine high-density polyethylene (HPDE) fibers that are fused together to form a strong, uniform web. The tough structure of DuPont™ Tyvek® is engineered to create millions of extremely small pores that resist bulk water and air penetration, while allowing moisture vapor to pass through.
