R-Wrap® is a weather resistive membrane designed to defend against rain, wind, air, and moisture and provides a superior secondary line of defense against Mother Nature and her elements. R-Wrap protective house wrap is a non-perforated polyolefin membrane that is installed beneath the exterior siding to reduce air infiltration and act as a weather-resistive barrier. R-Wrap is designed to provide a secondary line of defense against bulk water penetration and is not intended for use as a primary water barrier. Used in residential and commercial construction, installing house wrap on an entire home or structure is generally the most common industry practice.
R-Wrap minimizes air penetration and acts as your home’s windbreaker to improve energy efficiency. Its non-perforated film resists rain and acts as an effective drainage plane. R-Wrap’s micro-porous “breathable” film allows moisture vapor to pass through it easily and won’t trap moisture in the wall cavity.
Stucco specified & approved
When installed properly and in accordance with Barricade Building Products’ recommended guidelines, R-Wrap used in conjunction with an approved metal lath, provides an excellent barrier developed to resist bulk water penetration and direct the flow of water to designed drainage paths preventing it from penetrating the wall envelope.
