Did you know that the average 2,500-square-foot home has over a half-mile of cracks and crevices in the wall cavity? That’s a ton of space for air and water to seep in—impacting your Chicagoland home’s energy efficiency and potentially causing expensive long-term problems with mold, mildew, and rot.
What’s the solution?
It’s GreenGuard House Wrap from Illinois Energy Windows & Siding! This special house wrap is designed to weatherize your home and fully protect it from Chicagoland’s temperamental climate. You’ll notice the change in comfort, quiet, and efficiency right away.
Weatherize Your Chicagoland Home with a Complete Air and Water Barrier
House siding offers one layer of weather protection, but even the most high-end siding system will still allow some air and moisture through the panels—especially during heavy storms, where rain may be blown by wind up and against your siding. That’s why an additional layer of house wrap can be so critical!
Serving as a secondary air and water barrier, GreenGuard House Wrap will:
- Reduce Drafts and Rain from Entering Your Wall Cavity
- Provide Extra Insulation to Complement Your ENERGY STAR Windows, Siding, and Doors
- Prevent Water-Related Problems Like Mold, Mildew, Rot, Stains, and Foundation Damage
- Lower Your Energy Bills Each Month
Because our house wrap is breathable, it also allows excess moisture inside the wall cavity to escape to the outside. Your home will stay comfortable and dry, guaranteed.
How Does House Wrap Work?
House wrap is installed under your choice of siding, acting as a back-up layer of weather protection. Not all siding contractors in Chicagoland are familiar with proper installation techniques, however, so you should be careful who you hire for the job. Improperly installed house wrap may actually seal moisture in—effectively contributing to many of the expensive problems you’re trying to avoid.
At Illinois Energy Windows & Siding, we have over 25 years of experience and can install your house wrap to the highest standards. We’ll ensure your satisfaction with our trained, award-winning experts and True-Lifetime Warranties!
