What does it take to become the #1 ranked house wrap brand in the industry? Why do builders rate DuPont™ Tyvek® HomeWrap® as #1 in quality and the brand they use the most when purchasing a house wrap?
It comes from being a leader in building science and understanding how to build beyond code to create homes that are durable, energy-efficient and comfortable to live in. DuPont created the house wrap category more than 35 years ago, using a unique manufacturing technique that allows Tyvek® HomeWrap® to hold out air and bulk water while vapors can escape from inside the home to reduce mold and water damage. DuPont has been helping builders ever since introducing this advanced material, and has continued to fuel the industry with innovative products as codes advance.
DuPont is committed to providing superior protection against the elements with products that will protect the building envelope. Other than the familiar Tyvek® HomeWrap® brand DuPont produces unique wrap products to help with specific application needs such as Tyvek® StuccoWrap®, DrainWrap™, and ThermaWrap® R5.0 insulated house wrap. Also, important to the building industry is protecting the envelope at the most vulnerable areas, such as windows, doors, and penetrations.
DuPont™ Flashing Systems offer a full range of flashing products, made with 100 percent butyl adhesive, that help to improve energy-efficient buildings. Builders may recognize one of most innovative products, DuPont™ FlexWrap™ NF, a flexible flashing that can stretch into corners of windows or doors, or for arched-top windows. With product offerings from the wall to the roof, such as Tyvek® Protec™ roofing underlayments, DuPont provides complete protection for builders' needs.
