Dow Building Solutions serves the global building and construction markets with industry-leading insulation, air sealing and weatherization solutions for residential construction. Our integrated solutions work together to deliver energy efficiency, reduce air infiltration, manage moisture, meet increasing energy codes and deliver long-term comfort and energy savings to homeowners.
When continuous, rigid insulation is not an option or is not enough because a secondary water-resistive barrier is desired, housewrap solutions from Dow are the best choice.
Create a protective, continuous membrane to cover non-insulating sheathings like OSB or cracks and gaps between exterior sheathing and seams of rigid foam insulation with WEATHERMATE™ Housewrap and WEATHERMATE™ Plus Housewrap that is polyolefin-based and provides:
- Moisture resistance
- A durable and highly tear-resistant air barrier
A continuous layer of rigid insulation is the preferred wall solution for providing the ultimate above-grade wall protection because of its high insulating value. Eliminate air leaks and energy loss through wall studs by surrounding the home with STYROFOAM™ Brand Extruded Polystyrene Insulation, STYROFOAM™ Residential Sheathing or STYROFOAM™ Tongue and Groove from Dow that feature:
- High, long-term R-value
- Exceptional moisture resistance
- Excellent compressive strength
