Waterproofing and Weather Barriers
Extreme weather is the new normal, so "building as usual" is no longer an option. Every home must be constructed to withstand wind-driven rain, snow, ice and everything else that
Mother Nature brings. Therefore, it is critical to make sure a home is waterproofed, especially during initial construction. GCP Applied Technologies has a vast portfolio of waterproofing and weather barriers that will bring you the peace of mind knowing that your home and valuables are safe, dry and protected.
GCP provides multiple waterproofing and weather barrier products to fully protect a home. From the roof to the basement, each area needs to be waterproofed and protected. We have a wide variety of
roofing underlayments that can be used for all types of roofs and environments. Whether it is a self-adhered or mechanically-attached underlayment, GCP has the products to keep the roof safe from the elements. In difficult to protect detail areas, such as windows and doors, we offer a line of flashings that can be used to fully waterproof and protect the home. In addition, GCP's line of weather barriers is second to none, and not only protects the home, but also increases the energy efficiency as well. By providing another layer of protection, our underlayments and weather resistive barriers keep the home comfortable and dry. By combining the roofing underlayments, weather barriers and flashings GCP is able to offer a full
Weather Protection System.
GCP--and its predecessor company, Grace--has been the name contractors have trusted when building homes for almost 50 years. With a proven track record and high-quality products, GCP continues to be the leader in providing superior waterproofing and weather protection systems today. GCP has been striving to deliver new and innovative products to better protect homes from extreme weather. It began with
Grace Ice and Water Shield® and continues today with
Vycor® weather barrier systems. Whatever the next great improvement in residential weather protection is, you can count on GCP Applied Technologies to get the job done.
From the basement and foundation to the windows, doors and roof, GCP has you protected with high performance waterproofing and weather barriers. Build with GCP Weather Protection Systems and have the confidence that no matter what the weather condition is, your home, business and family are safely protected by GCP.
The familiar Grace brand will continue to appear on GCP documents until we complete our rebranding. Until then, Grace-branded documents are accurate representations of GCP Applied Technologies products.
