Benjamin Obdyke's Hydrofilament Drainable Housewrap creates a path for moisture trapped behind the cladding to flow freely thanks to a 1mm gap created by the wrap's filaments. The wrap ensures that the wall behind the exterior cladding will drain faster and more efficiently, leading to a more-effective building envelope system.
