GCP’s products were selected for the renovation of a house in West Roxbury, Massachusetts, for This Old House, The episode aired February 10. GCP’s self-adhered Vycor enV-S weather barrier and Vycor Pro flashing were both used on the renovation of a tired Victorian home.
Unlike conventional housewraps, installation of Vycor enV-S weather resistive barrier requires no mechanical fastening or taping of seams, avoiding tears and costly reworks. The membrane bonds to the sheathing, self seals at overlaps and seals around fasteners used to install siding and other wall elements. This results in exceptionally low levels of air leakage, and improved energy efficiency of the home.
For added protection, GCP’s Vycor Pro self-adhered flashing tape was used to prevent the migration of water and air through the window and door openings of the home.
The episode that includes GCP’s products is titled “Pruning 101.” Full episodes are also available online the Sunday night after each episode’s original airdate via the following link: http://thisoldhouse.com/watchtoh.
