How else can Vertibreak® help your project?
  • Long Term Successful Cladding Attachment with most common claddings Confirmed in 3rd Party Deflection testing.
  • Use of exterior insulation can move the dew point resulting in less condensation, mould & rot.
  • Veritbreak 4 & 6 are 'semi-vapour open'(semi-permeable) so that potential moisture vapour has some ability to escape from walls.
  • Not as susceptible to shrinking, warping, cupping and other wood furring issues which may cause uneven or wavy siding
  • Creates a more robust air barrier when used in conjunction with a taped housewrap system.
  • Individual drainage channels may aid 'compartmentalization' for pressure equalization resulting in less moisture transfer across drainage cavity.
  • Limits the ability for 'ballooning' of housewrap which may otherwise cause tears or air barrier failure.
