Streamline Weatherization with Zip System Sheathing and Tape
SPEED AND EASE OF INSTALLATION ZIP System® sheathing and tape is easier to install than traditional housewrap and felt, helping save money on labor costs and improve project cycle times. BUILT-IN WATER-RESISTIVE BARRIER By achieving optimal levels of permeability and drainage, ZIP System sheathing and tape protects against water intrusion, while still allowing the panels to properly dry. ENERGY-EFFICIENT AIR BARRIER ZIP System sheathing and tape forms a tight barrier against unwanted air leakage, for a durable building envelope that helps promote energy efficiency and increase interior comfort. ENHANCED STRUCTURAL DURABILITY ZIP System® panels are available with a Structural 1 rating, so you can get the ultimate shear strength to meet seismic and high-wind zone requirements. ENHANCED THERMAL RESISTANCE The all-in-one ZIP System® R-sheathing panel with a built-in layer of insulation helps add R-value to exterior sheathing with a single easy-to-install panel.
Icynene Spray Foam Attic Insulation
The American Chemistry Council defines spray foam as a continuous insulation and air seal plastic material that is sprayed on walls, roofs, into gaps and corners, and on all contoured surfaces. Spray foam is able to seal cracks and crevices throughout a home. Sealing cracks and gaps reduces the air exchange, or air leaks, in and out of a home. Air leaks are a leading cause of increased energy bills. HVAC systems that heat and cool buildings are continuously operating. By reducing extreme temperature variations with spray foam insulation, you will save on the overuse of mechanical systems which leads to lower energy bills.
