For our residential customers looking to reduce construction costs and to build a drier, more comfortable and energy-efficient living environment we offer Enviro-Dri Weather-Resistant Barrier System by Tremco.
Enviro-Dri Barrier System is a more effective alternative to traditional housewraps in protecting your home against
/ Liquid moisture intrusion
/ Uncontrolled air exchanges
/ Trapped moisture vapor
The Enviro-Dri System cuts air infiltrations helping you reach your energy efficiency goals at lower costs. Whether your home is brick, stone, stucco, wood or other siding, the Enviro-Dri System is not affected by the surfactants that can diminish the performance of wraps. The fluid-applied Enviro-Dri System is installed directly to the sheathing system. There are no nails, no staples, no penetrations through which water can seep.
Just how effective is the Enviro-Dri Weather-Resistant Barrier System at preventing air infiltration?
Side-by-side lab tests were conducted to compare the performance of the Enviro-Dri WRB System to typical house wraps, installed per manufacturer's instructions, in the critical measure of air movement through a wall system. At pressures equivalent to a 25 MPH wind-load, the Enviro-Dri WRB System was 88% more effective in stopping the flow of air through the wall system! At even greater wind pressures, the Enviro-Dri WRB System performed up to 97% better than mechanicaly-fastened and taped housewrap!
