This week’s wall DCT-W11-4 is one for those who think outside the box. If you would prefer not to spend days and dollars stapling, patching, taping, detailing, resealing and searching for leaks in your internal air tight membrane then did you know there was another option?
Wrap up the building with a fully self-adhered ProctorPassive Wraptite SA continuous airtight and watertight class 4 vapour permeable membrane located external to the structure where there are fewer penetrations and less dramas to deal with. Why use two air tight membranes and multiple tapes when the job can be done easier with just one ?
Continuous vapour open, semi-rigid non-combustible DCTech Vulcanwool takes care of your insulation and thermal bridging needs leaving the stud space free to use as you like.
The contrarian is your reliable friend, always ahead of curve, and doing things a little bit differently. Once you have tried this approach you may never go back to thinking <strong>inside the box</strong>.
