Complete home protection system: From roof to wall

house wrap / complete system / roof to wall

The complete home protection system must cover the home completely. That includes both the roof and the outer walls. GCP offers a complete and continuous system in its robust line of roofing underlayments—ICE & WATER SHIELD® and ICE & WATER SHIELD® HT for high-temperature applications—coupled with the VYCOR® house wrap system that consists of a self-adhered weather barrier (VYCOR® enV-S™ membrane) and flashing tapes in VYCOR® Pro and VYCOR® Plus.

VYCOR® enV-S™ self-adhered weather barrier

VYCOR® enV-S™ self-adhered weather barrier represents the next generation in house wrap and is designed to provide superior weather protection, and improved energy performance. The membrane brings together the weather protection benefits of a self-adhered membrane, with the breathability of traditional housewraps. The unique adhesive coating bonds strongly to the sheathing, but remains vapor permeable. VYCOR® enV-S™ membrane resists damage in windy conditions, leading to less rework and a high quality appearance.

VYCOR® PRO flashing tape

VYCOR® PRO flashing, with its unique film and non-asphaltic, butyl-modified adhesive technology, provides premium protection against water infiltration in all critical non-roof detail areas, that traditional building papers, felts, housewraps and other flashing products cannot match.

VYCOR® Plus flashing tape

VYCOR® Plus self-adhered flashing is composed of durable, cross-laminated, high-density polyethylene sheet, backed by an aggressive, pressure-sensitive rubberized asphalt adhesive. 

ICE & WATER SHIELD® HT high-temp roofing underlayment

ICE & WATER SHIELD® HT high temperature self-adhered roofing underlayment is a premier membrane designed to deliver premium in-place performance for high temperature applications. It is composed of two waterproofing materials—an innovative and proprietary rubberized asphalt adhesive combined with a high performance polymeric film with UV barrier properties. The rubberized asphalt surface is backed with a foldless release paper that protects its adhesive quality. During application, the release paper is easily removed, allowing the rubberized asphalt to bond tightly to the roof deck. The RIPCORD® embedded in the adhesive provides the applicator a “split release on demand” feature, making it easier to apply in detail areas.

ICE & WATER SHIELD original, self-adhered roofing underlayment

ICE & WATER SHIELD® self-adhered roofing underlayment has protected millions of homes' roofs, and been installed on marquee projects in 25 countries, since its introduction in 1978. This high-performance solution provides superior performance at an excellent value. ICE & WATER SHIELD® outperforms the competition by letting contractors shine, and by keeping families safe and dry.

ULTRA® underlayment for metal roofs

ULTRA™ butyl roofing underlayment is composed of two waterproofing materials—an aggressive 100% butyl rubber adhesive backed by a layer of high density cross laminated polyethylene film. The product is 30 mils (0.76 mm) thick making it easy to handle and apply. The unique, advanced adhesive formulation offers premium adhesion to the roof deck, high quality laps, superior seal around roofing fasteners, and unrivaled high temperature stability. The adhesive is backed by a protective plastic release liner that protects its adhesive quality. The release liner is easily removed allowing the adhesive to be bonded tightly to the roof deck.

Selecting all components of the complete house system for weather protection will ensure that they connect at critical points (like around doors, windows and in the roof-to-wall flashing detail areas that connect weather barrier to roofing underlayment).

From the roof to the walls, we've got you covered… #WeatherOrNot.
