The siding or exterior covering of the home is the first line of defense against the weather. From brick to vinyl to fiber cement, the exterior is what stops a large portion of the rain, wind and weather from entering your home.
Weather-resistant barriers are the second line of defense behind the siding. They stop what the exterior façade could not and provide additional protection from moisture and air.
Builders have a few options for this second line of defense.
Kingspan’s GreenGuard VW wrap, for instance, provides moisture management and offers UV-stability for up to 12 months. Weather or project delays can slow down construction, so knowing your WRB won’t degrade with UV exposure provides additional peace of mind.
