Zip System sheathing is a game-changer in the construction industry. Unlike traditional house wrap, which is an external layer of material that is wrapped around the exterior of a building, Zip System sheathing is a combination of structural sheathing and an air and water barrier all in one product. It is a revolutionary solution that offers many benefits to both builders and homeowners. In this blog, we will discuss why Abram Homes prefers Zip System sheathing over traditional house wrap.

At Abram Homes offer clients the latest and most advanced construction materials and techniques. We have built a reputation for building high-quality homes that are energy-efficient and durable. One of the products that Abram Homes uses for clients who desire a stronger and more efficient new home is Zip System sheathing. Below are some of the reasons why Abram Homes prefers Zip System sheathing over traditional house wrap.

1.       Superior Air and Water Barrier

Zip System sheathing offers superior air and water barrier protection compared to traditional house wrap. The product is specifically designed to prevent air and water infiltration, which can cause structural damage and reduce the energy efficiency of a building. With Zip System sheathing, builders can be sure that their building is protected from air and water infiltration, which can lead to a healthier and more comfortable living environment for the occupants.

2.       Energy Efficiency

Energy efficiency is a key consideration for homeowners who want to reduce their energy bills and minimize their impact on the environment. Zip System sheathing is an energy-efficient product that can help homeowners achieve their goals. The product is designed to prevent air infiltration, which can cause drafts and reduce the energy efficiency of a building. By using Zip System sheathing, builders can create a tighter building envelope that is more energy-efficient and comfortable for the occupants.

3.       Zip is designated Structural Sheathing

Zip System sheathing is not just an air and water barrier, but it is also a structural sheathing that provides additional strength and rigidity to the building. This means that Zip System sheathing can act as a load-bearing component of the building’s structure, reducing the need for additional structural supports. As a result, builders can save time and money on labor and materials, as they do not need to install separate structural sheathing and air and water barrier products.

In conclusion, System sheathing is designed to withstand high winds and extreme weather conditions, providing additional protection to the building and its occupants. It also offers superior air and water barrier protection, helping to improve the energy efficiency of the building and reduce the risk of structural damage and mold growth. If you are a builder or homeowner, consider using Zip System sheathing for its many benefits, including its structural sheathing properties.  At Abram Homes, we build custom houses, both large and small.
