Just Zip it

We are often asked what the green stuff is that we install before the siding.  ZIP System wall combines the strength and stability of a high-performing panel and can stand up to Maine’s weather because of its water-resistive barrier.  We also don’t have to worry about housewrap tearing off or blowing away.

Because ZIP System wall panels install in fewer steps than traditional housewrap, we can finish our houses sooner and save interest costs on construction loans.  Another plus is that the special engineering allows moisture vapor to travel through the panel, allowing walls to breathe and dry out.

There’s also no risk of water becoming trapped between housewrap and sheathing, which could result in moisture-related issues.
