Create a Weather Resistant Barrier
HOUSEWRAP* is designed to prevent exterior water intrusion into a wall assembly, while still allowing water vapor to pass to the exterior.

RAINSCREEN CONSTRUCTION* creates an air space between the housewrap and the back of siding & trim, and is recommended to provide drainage for water that has entered behind the siding and trim.
RAINSCREEN CONSTRUCTION* Ensure housewrap, rainscreen and all 3rd party materials are installed in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions and local building code specifications.
