What It's About:
Ever see a house under construction where the house wrap was flapping in the breeze? Do you think roofing underlayment is only there to protect the frame until the shingles go on? It’s not! These weather resistive barriers play a critical role in a home’s energy performance, its indoor air quality, and ultimately, its durability. In this presentation, we’ll explain why WRBs are so important and demonstrate how to install them properly.
What You’ll See and Learn:
- How to choose the right WRB for your wall
- Tight, level and no-radius corners
- Correct lapping and detailing of the openings, roof underlayment and integrating the drip edge correctly
- Using the right fasteners and installing them according to the schedule
