Omaha, Neb.-based HearthStone Homes has named Typar Fiberweb as its new housewrap in accordance with its commitment to build only Energy Star-qualified homes.
The company said it chose the housewrap manufacture after an evaluation of Typar’s performance data and Fiberweb’s manufacturing processes.
“Fiberweb is extremely well versed in helping builders create Energy Star homes, and we are confident Typar will enhance what we are doing to address air infiltration,” said Scott Kinkaid, VP innovation at HearthStone Homes. “When we toured their facility, it was evident that they weren’t simply accepting that they had a good product, but were instead constantly looking for ways to make it even better.”
HearthStone Homes now uses the Typar Weather Protection System as part of the strategy to make its homes more energy efficient.
