Traditional contracting rules suggest that plywood does a good enough job, at higher margins, when compared to sheathing products. While Zip System R-Sheathing increases overall cost, it also gives contractors an edge during the bidding and after-care stages, especially in today's competitive world where homeowners care more and more about efficiency.
Engineered Wood Product
Zip System is an engineered wood product combined with the same insulation qualities as a leading competitor. What makes Zip System R-Sheathing the preferred option is that it offers the same structural support as subflooring. That means Zip System meets all bracing requirements and provides a nailable, flashable base for cladding, trim and windows.
Homeowners care about energy efficiency and will pay more if the resulting savings compensate for the initial outlay. Unlike house wrap, Zip System R-Sheathing protects R-value with its built-in water-resisting barrier that eliminates the need for wrap altogether. Not only will Zip provide moisture and bulk water protection like its leading rigid foam competitor, but it seals the home to reduce air leakage (in and out) as well. The Zip System comes with an 180-day exposure guarantee, sufficient time to accommodate construction delays in virtually all climates.
Complete Your Project on Time
Installing Zip System R-Sheathing is quick and only takes two steps. What's more, unlike rigid foam solutions, Zip System R-Sheathing's integrated insulation eliminates the need for added insulation. As such, the product not only reduces labor costs but it will reward your clients with reduced energy costs as well.
Backed by a Leading Warranty
What makes Zip System R-Sheathing a popular choice among contractors is that it's backed with an industry leading 30-year limited warranty, a benefit that speaks directly to consumers. By way of comparison, rigid foam comes with a 10-year warranty.
Deliver on Your Quality Promise
Encouraging your clients to upgrade to the Zip Systems isn't just for their benefit. It also allows contractors like yourself to deliver on a promise of completing a high-quality project on time and with long-term energy cost savings. And since a reduction in air leakage will be one of the first things your clients notice once the project wraps up, they will not only thank you immediately, but also for years to come.
