Typar® HouseWrap

Typar HouseWrap delivers four key advantages you won't find with other housewraps:
  • Superior water holdout blocks water from entering the wall cavity.
  • Exceptional moisture vapor transmission (MVT) it breathes so moisture can escape the wall cavity.
  • Superior tear strength proven to withstand heavy winds and is almost five times stronger than the leading competitive wrap.
  • Optimal surfactant and UV resistance reduces the damaging effects that oils and tannins from cedar siding, cement siding, stucco, brick and soaps from powerwashing can have on the system's ability to block bulk moisture penetration; stands up to the beating sun on the jobsite for up to 6 months without degradation.
And it's all backed by The Typar limited warranty, which provides the confidence of millions of homes/buildings wrapped, over more than 25 years of proven performance, professional installation by trained installers and a 10-year limited warranty.
