Protect building projects from the effects of Mother Nature with these powerful and long-lasting weather barriers, which provide air, water, wind, and thermal protection.
SoftTouch Duct Wrap
CertainTeed Sustainable Insulation
Composed of both recycled and renewable content, this resilient fiberglass insulation reduces unwanted heat gain or loss in heating, ventilating, and air conditioning ductwork. It comes as either an unfaced blanket or with FSK, gray PSK, or white PSK vapor retarder facings.Courtesy Velux and Renson

Designed to provide commercial buildings with moisture- and air-sealing protection, this sprayable, water-based coating covers and seals gaps as large as a quarter inch wide. It’s suitable for a range of surfaces, such as tapes, wood buck, and foam boards.Courtesy Prosoco
R-Guard SureSpan EX
A high-performance silicone material consumes both thermal movement and wind-loading stresses. It creates a long-lasting, flexible, and elastomeric seal that connects air and water barriers with building curtain walls, storefronts, or windows.
DuPont Tyvek ThermaWrap R5.0
Providing air, water, and thermal protection, this breathable weather barrier is equipped with six-inch uninsulated fl aps that can be installed like shingles. Tyvek allows moisture inside building walls to dry quickly and escape to the exterior, reducing both water damage and mold build-up.Courtesy Delta
Featuring a three-ply membrane, this water-resistive and air barrier works hard to eliminate leaks at fasteners and increase air tightness. The top and bottom layers consist of spun-bonded polypropylene, while the center layer is made of a vapor-permeable, water-tight polymeric sheet.
