Are you building, adding on to or remodeling a house? One of the most important things you can do is to protect your house against mold. Find out how just how easy it can be.
When we moved to Florida, it took us awhile to find a house that we liked and we were as surprised as anyone when we fell in love with a fixer upper. It wasn’t in the best shape but we could see the potential.
Of course, we had to get it checked out by a professional first. We have two daughters and wanted to make sure that the house was safe. One of my biggest fears was that they would find mold. I know how dangerous it can be and the humid Florida weather makes it a fairly common problem. We waited anxiously for the report because it definitely would have been a deal breaker if they’d found any. Luckily, the house was mold-free and we signed the papers.
Rot and mold are serious issues that you really don’t want to mess with! It doesn’t matter if you’re building a new home, adding on to your existing home or just replacing your siding, preventing mold should be a top priority. It can cause serious health problems if it gets into your walls of your home and you shouldn’t take any shortcuts! I also feel like it’s so important to use a trusted brand and Tyvek® is one of the most trusted names in the business. It says a lot that builders have voted them the best in the market for 20 consecutive years.
Tyvek sets the standard by which air and moisture barriers have been measured for the past 30 years. The Tyvek house wrap keeps rot and mold from forming in the walls of your home, so you can feel safe knowing that’s one less thing you have to worry about.
Even on a budget, this is one area where we’d never take shortcuts…my family’s health just wouldn’t be worth it. Want to see how Tyvek works to protect your home from mold? Just check out this video:
