Known for their Cedar Breather roofing underlayment and their Home Slicker series of siding protection, Benjamin Obdyke has this year introduced the HydroGap Drainable Housewrap. This new housewrap combines a water-resistant barrier and drainage system into one application. Unlike typical housewraps, made of either woven or non-woven materials comprising one or two layers, the new HydroGap is comprised of a tri-laminate substrate with the moisture barrier protected between two non-woven layers. Benjamin Obdyke’s patent-pending spacer design on the HydroGap surface creates a 1mm gap between the structure’s sheathing and cladding materials, which helps to promote drainage.
HydroGap and other Benjamin Obdyke products are currently special order products through National Lumber. If you are interested in the HydroGap housewrap or Benjamin Obdyke’s underlayments and sheathings, please contact your nearest National Lumber location.
