Benjamin Obdyke, Inc., recognized for its line of high-performance roof and wall products including Roll Vent, Cedar Breather, and Slicker® Rainscreen, has announced that its flagship product, HydroGap® drainable housewrap, received approval from the Canadian Construction Materials Centre (CCMC) earlier this year. Available in 5’ by 100’ rolls, HydroGap provides true drainage versus other housewraps. HydroGap allows water to drain away from the wall in seconds, eliminating the propensity for water to go into thousands of nail holes, flashing details, and other penetration points to cause damage.
In addition to superior drainage performance, HydroGap offers an unmatched system warranty that guarantees quality and performance for 15 years. HydroGap offers a way for builders to differentiate their projects in the market, by allowing them to provide a superior protection system and peace-of-mind for home and building owners.
Benjamin Obdyke recognizes the growing need for protection against extreme weather conditions as well as the need to address changing building codes and practices. Products like HydroGap continue to become more important within the marketplace. As the need for new code requirements is being recognized throughout Canada, Benjamin Obdyke prioritizes improved recommendations for drainable housewraps in their technical bulletins and installation guides.
