Why we use ZIP System exterior sheathing

Exterior sheathing plays an important role in protecting your home by creating an air-tight and water-resistive barrier, and choosing which material you use can make a huge difference to the sustainability of your structure.

You want your home to be properly insulated and climate resistant, as do we. Your home should be free of water damage and be as energy efficient as possible. This is why we use ZIP System for all of our builds. ZIP Sheathing is a one-of-a-kind structural panel that makes the roofs and walls highly energy efficient. It comes with a built-in barrier that manages to prevent air leakage and keep heat, water, and moisture out of the walls and roof, ensuring a comfortable home. Thanks to a continuous air barrier created by taped seams, R-Sheathing prevents excess air from escaping your home. By trapping the air inside, your home uses less energy to stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter. This creates an energy efficient space, saving both your budget and the environment over time.

It’s our belief that using ZIP System R-Sheathing is not only an eco-friendly choice, it’s the best way to ensure your home will last the test of time with fewer repairs down the road.
