WeatherTrek® helps to ensure that your wall envelope stays dry and acts as a secondary layer of protection against water and moisture — it’s the home’s raincoat and windbreaker all rolled into ONE!
Creating an airspace is the key factor to superior drainage plane performance
WeatherTrek’s unique non-directional rigid surface pattern creates a standoff property that facilitates water drainage on both sides of the material. WeatherTrek’s revolutionary crush resistant surface provides a drainage path for water to flow freely. Water is channeled safely down and away from the envelope. IT’S A BUILT-IN RAIN SCREEN METHOD.
Conventional smooth surface house wraps with typical horizontal lap sidings directly applied can “pond” water along the siding edges, particularly at the pressure points where it is fastened tightly to the sheathing substrate. WeatherTrek with EVD prevents ponding because of its rigid surface pattern which enables water to flow freely down the exterior wall envelope to be collected by flashing carrying it safely away from the wall.
