VaproShield

For over 20 years VaproShield has designed and manufactured high performance vapor permeable water resistive barriers (WRB) and air barrier (AB) membranes and accessories, creating a comprehensive approach to protecting the building envelope that leads to unprecedented savings.

With material and labor, the VaproShield WRB/Air Barrier System offers up to 50% savings compared to major competitors. Since we have eliminated the labor intensive jobs of primer application and joint and corner taping/masking - VaproShield is the proven winner.

Buildings are constantly battling moisture infiltration from occupants and Mother Nature - so allowing vapor to pass through your WRB/Air Barrier, but not air or water, mitigates moisture damage and saves energy for the life of the building.

The VaproShield Air Barrier System was designed to maximize profitability plus minimize inventory and field training. Nearly 99% of installers reuse our products on their next jobs because managing only two SKU’s in the field improves labor estimates and drastically reduces installation time.

VaproShield membranes work on virtually all substrates; gypsum, plywood, extruded/molded polystyrene insulation, concrete block, and mineral wool. Diverse cladding and multiple insulation materials — easy enough — VaproShield membranes offer proven compatibility.

Fully exposed [no cladding] VaproShield membranes have been proven durable in the most extreme conditions – hurricanes, arctic blasts and frigid northern temperatures. Noted as the most Phase Construction Friendly WRB/Air Barrier in the industry, VaproShield membranes can help keep your construction schedule on track. Easily installed in virtually all weather conditions, including below freezing temperatures.

VaproShield membranes were inspired by a frog’s permeable, breathable skin, so we have always been green. Their membranes contain zero VOC’s and do not require toxic/flammable primers, making them safe to transport, handle and install. We were awarded the coveted Declare Label for the WrapShield SA Self-Adhered System, placing VaproShield at the forefront of the transparency movement.

Mass Timber Projects

Mass timber projects, utilizing engineered wood products like CLT (cross-laminated timber), are a sustainable and speedy construction method gaining traction. These projects offer several advantages: wood is a renewable resource that stores carbon, the structures are strong and durable enough for high-rises, and prefabricated components lead to faster completion times. VaproShield is crucial for mass timber projects. Installed on the interior wall, they control moisture movement, preventing condensation buildup within the wood and protecting it from rot, thus ensuring the building's structural integrity.
