Durable sheathing resists weather for easier builds

Sheathing that can stand up to the weather helps builders deliver a better quality home.

That's why Huber Engineered Woods extended its Advantech flooring technology to roof and wall sheething.

At the 2015 International Builders' Show, Tracy Collins, marketing manager for Huber Engineered Woods, reviewed Advantech sheathing products and the benefits it offers to builders, and ultimately to homeowners.

In 2015 Huber made the sheathing products available nationwide, The nationwide rollout follows nearly two decades of success in meeting and exceeding residential and commercial applications in the New England region, where weather conditions require architects, builders and developers to rely on trusted building products that deliver performance.

AdvanTech sheathing is manufactured with design strength and stiffness capacities beyond those required by code minimum (PS-2) for OSB or plywood panels. The panel’s design stiffness also surpasses competitor panels, contributing to a more consistent, durable product for better application on site.

In addition, AdvanTech sheathing has a Structural 1 rating for greater resistance to wind and seismic loads, as well as unmatched moisture resistance using the same advanced resin technology as AdvanTech flooring. AdvanTech sheathing also is backed by a limited lifetime warranty not available with traditional plywood.
