Insulating Building Materials in Long Island? Think Tyvek® HomeWraps®
Quite often, homeowners are faced with a worrying quandary—how can they prevent water from seeping into the house, but also allow for an escape of any moisture that may have found its way in? This is true particularly in areas that are prone to a barrage of weather-related hazards. In the past, tar paper or felt was a popular option, but because they were prone to tearing due to their heavy weight, they became relegated over the years, necessitating a better alternative. Due to this dire need, house wraps and roofing underlays were introduced, and while there are many varieties available today, Tyvek® HomeWrap® from DuPont, is still the leading house wrap of choice among contractors and suppliers of durable, reliable, and quality building materials in Long Island and elsewhere.
