Moisture Control

Achieve the perfect balance of water holdout and breathability.

Moisture control in the wall cavity has a profound effect on the long-term value and integrity of a home. Protecting the structure during construction, as well as after completion, is essential to reducing the risk of moisture damage. TEKTONĀ® HouseWrap acts as the primary line of defence against the elements during construction, and as a secondary water barrier after the cladding is up. Because moisture can enter the wall cavity from inside the home as well, TEKTON HouseWrap has the optimal perm rating (10 to 20 U.S. perms) that allows the wall cavity to breathe so moisture vapour can escape. In addition, the TEKTON material itself does not support the growth of mold, unlike traditional building papers.
