Do ALTA® LP, HP and Commercial styles drain differently?
No, all ALTA® housewrap styles get the same drainage property from CLAF® fabric, <95%.
Where is drainage important?
Everywhere. Although only a few areas in the U.S. currently mandate a drainage plane for housewraps, it is always good practice to use one that includes a drainage feature. No matter where you live, a strong, wind-driven rain can allow bulk water to get behind the exterior siding, or cladding, of buildings. A drainage feature helps keep bulk water from finding a path inside the wall structure.
Can ALTA® housewrap be installed vertically?
Yes, or even at 45 degrees, which can be a big advantage when wrapping sections with triangular or other shapes as it allows installers to make fewer cuts.
What size rolls are available of ALTA®?
ALTA® housewrap rolls are available in 10ft x 100ft, 10ft x 150ft, 9ft x 100ft, and 9ft x 150ft rolls.
