Your home’s exterior isn’t just made entirely of siding. It requires layers of material that work together to create an exterior that protects your home from even the most extreme Minnesota climate. If you’re planning for a Twin Cities siding that can give ultimate protection, your exterior will still need a reliable weather barrier.
At Twin Cities Siding Professionals, we are proud to offer James Hardie HardieWrap® weather barriers. Here are its features:
Durability – HardieWrap weather barrier can perform well against wind and tear resistance.
Superior adhesion – HardieWrap doesn’t lose its adhesion even under extreme temperatures. It contains no asphalts, VOCs, or solvents that can degrade adhesives over time.
UV-stable – Contractors can leave unused HardieWrap weather barriers exposed under the sun for up to 180 days without losing its UV stability. Even if siding installation gets delayed for any reason, HardieWrap weather barrier can be left standing for the time being without any damaging effect.
Weather barriers are a part of getting new siding in Twin Cities, regardless of brand. Nonetheless, many weather barriers let too much moisture through and break down easily when the same moisture is trapped on the surface. This leads to premature failure, necessitating untimely siding replacement.
HardieWrap, on the other hand, strikes the perfect balance between moisture retention and wind protection. Together with James Hardie fiber cement siding, it creates a barrier that protects your home from harsh exterior conditions. It also helps retain interior heat and optimizes your home’s energy efficiency, leading to savings on your energy costs.
The complete HardieWrap weather barrier solution includes the following products: the weather barrier itself, Pro-Flashing, Flex Flashing, and Seam Tape. The flashings prevent water intrusion, while the seam tape covers small halls for better protection against air and water infiltration.
