It’s a one-of-a-kind structural roof and wall system with a built-in energy-efficient barrier that keeps moisture out and reduces air leakage, while still allowing panels to properly dry. Plus, it installs in two easy steps: 1. Install the panels, 2. Tape the seams. Fewer steps result in faster installation. In fact, ZIP SystemTM tape installs 40% faster when compared to traditional housewrap.

ZIP System roof assembly combines our revolutionary integrated sheathing and flashing tape or liquid flashing to provide a sealed roof for protection against moisture intrusion during construction or if high winds strip the roof covering away. Trust ZIP System roof assembly to help fortify your home against the storm.

ZIP System® Wall Sheathing

A revolutionary new approach to building enclosures, ZIP System sheathing and tape streamlines the weatherization process with an integrated air and water-resistive barrier that delivers moisture and air protection in one easy-to-install system.
