Weather-Resistant Barrier Use Within Modular Home Construction

- Friday, March 13, 2020

OK, so not everything about home building is highly entertaining. Take for instance weather-resistant barriers within the home construction process. Not a very sexy topic on the surface, but barrier protection is a very, very important element of the home construction process and some (if not most) builders fail to give barrier protection its proper due. We’re here to tell you that the protective measures that we use here at Tidewater Custom Modular Homes is the highest quality barrier material on the market today. Again, not all builders use the quality of barrier products necessary to guarantee a moisture infiltration protection system that retards mold and mildew build up within walls and attics. Our barrier wrap also helps prevent exterior wall moisture damage.
