Sustainability

Sustainability ensures the future of the environment, and your business. That's why DRYline® products are engineered to be environmentally responsible. To determine the environmental responsibility of a structure, the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) and the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) have each established rating systems (NGBP1 and LEED2). A higher rating denotes a healthier home at a lower cost to the environment. So how can DRYline products contribute to raising your ratings and lowering your environmental impact?

  • Reduced Finishing

    Since DRYline requires no additional finishing, less priming, painting or additional resources are needed at the finishing stage.

  • Minimized Structure Degradation

    DRYline is termite- and water-resistant, and minimizes structure degradation and enhances longevity.

  • Recycled Materials

    DRYline may contain up to 10% recycled material.

  • Stable

    DRYline is recyclable and more stable in wetting cycles than traditional building felt.

  • Reduced Transportation Pollution

    Because DRYline building wraps may be produced in the U.S., less transportation pollution is caused by their use.

  • Meet ICC Building Code Requirements

    DRYline building wraps meet ICC building code requirements and are an integral component of an energy-efficient wall system.

  • Formaldehyde-Free

    DRYline building wraps don't use formaldehydes, creating a safer, less-abrasive product for installers and the environment.

  • Reduced Construction Waste

    DRYline building wraps weigh less than asphalt-saturated kraft paper, and come in efficient sizes to help reduce construction waste.

  • Invest In The Future of Your Business.

    The decision to use DRYline products is not only an investment for the future of the environment, it's also an investment for the future of your business. As the demand for sustainable home construction grows, so does the need for environmentally responsible builders. The forward-thinking builder who begins practicing sustainability today is well-positioned to be a leader of the industry tomorrow.
