Why You Need House-wrap Insulation
House-wrap insulation serves as a weather barrier while adding R-value. It allows water vapor to pass from the interior to the exterior while preventing rain from getting into the wall assembly. It is the protective layer under a home's siding and over the sheathing. It's referred to as house wrap because it literally wraps around the home. When moisture from either direction is allowed to build up between a wall cavity it results in wood damage and mold in fiberglass or cellulose insulation.
