DuPont™ Tyvek® HomeWrap®
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.
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.
