OSBLOCK™ Housewrap

OSBLOCK™ housewrap is a protective membrane or barrier installed on the exterior walls of your OSBLOCK™ building during construction. Its primary purpose is to prevent the infiltration of moisture into the wall assembly, while still allowing for the diffusion of water vapor to move from the inside to the outside of the building.

Here are some key characteristics and functions of OSBLOCK™  housewrap:

  • Water Resistance: The housewrap is designed to be water-resistant, acting as a barrier against rain, snow, and other sources of moisture.
  • Air Barrier: It helps to create an airtight seal around the building envelope, preventing drafts and improving energy efficiency by reducing air leakage.
  • Vapor Permeability: While keeping water out, a OSBLOCK™ housewrap allows water vapor to escape from the building, preventing the buildup of condensation in the wall cavity. This helps to prevent issues such as mold and rot.
  • Durability: A Osblock Housewrap is typically made of a durable and tear-resistant material, providing long-lasting protection for the building.

Note for European countries users:
Please be aware that sizes may differ slightly from those commonly used in Europe countries. It is important to select one size larger than usual when making your purchase.
