ZIP System Building Enclosures

Posted on: June 23, 2020

You will hear me talk about energy efficiency a lot with my new home because I hate wasting money on high energy bills. From windows to insulation, to heating and cooling systems and even shingles on my roof - everything in my new home was carefully chosen with energy efficiency in mind. ⁣

This video covers ZIP System building enclosures by @huberwood. ZIP System was a must for my new home. You’ve probably seen these green houses with brown roofs in your own neighborhoods and if you ever wondered how they’re different from traditional OSB or Plywood construction this video will explain it in detail. ⁣

Unlike traditional sheathing options, ZIP System building enclosures eliminate the need for house wrap on exterior walls and felt on the roof. They also have built in air and water barriers and can withstand weather and UV exposure for up to 6 months. Additionally, there is an option to upgrade to the R-sheathing line which has all of the benefits of the original plus built in exterior insulation to prevent thermal bridging and make the home more comfortable and energy efficient. ⁣
