The Typar Weather Protection System from Fiberweb, Old Hickory, TN, will be featured on an edition of the popular ABC television program, “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.” The home being spotlighted in this episode—airing in early 2008—is more than 100 years old and has been deemed unsafe, with problems ranging from an outdated septic system and cracked foundation to outdated electrical wiring.

To help contribute to the sustainability, energy-efficiency and overall comfort of the home, the Typar Weather Protection System—which includes Typar HouseWrap, Flashings and Construction Tape—was used to guard the home against the damaging effects of moisture and air penetration. More than 3000 square feet of Typar HouseWrap was installed to protect the home from nature’s harshest elements. Typar Flashings and Construction Tape were used in conjunction with Typar HouseWrap to assure seams, edges and openings were buttoned up to guarantee the highest level of system performance.
