DuPont Tyvek Home Wrap

Protect Your Home with DuPont™ Tyvek®

As a homeowner, there is little more important to you than protecting your house – especially from elements like water. Water can cause serious damage to your home, which is why taking measures to prevent any potential problems is vital during construction. Protect your home before it is even built by using DuPont Tyvek building wraps.

With over 30 years of proven performance, building wraps by Tyvek are a leader when it comes to taking care of your home. Whether during construction or 20 years down the line, these innovative wraps seal off your precious house from danger. With superior water resistance, DuPont Tyvek wraps are ideal for making sure your home is safe.

Why You Need It
Just like you wouldn’t tuck your coat into your pants during a rainstorm, you wouldn’t reverse shingle your home, allowing for more access points for moisture intrusion. With traditional taped seams, that is exactly what happens – the space where the tape meets material is prime for water collection. However, with DuPont Tyvek building wraps, overlap occurs in the proper direction, giving water a place to go that isn’t into your home.

How it Works
DuPont Tyvek building wraps are installed with at least a six-inch overlap to keep water out of any seams or meeting cracks. Shedding water away from the wall, this overlap gives no potential water access, keeping your home dry and damage-free. Plus, this weather barrier is just as simple and quick to install as traditional tape systems.

With most construction litigation being moisture-related, it is crucial that you protect your home from the start with DuPont Tyvek building wraps. Installed with a 10-year product warranty, this material will keep your home protected while giving you the peace of mind to know that your home was built right the first time.
