High-performance products make builders' lives easier
With its innovative ZIP System, Huber Engineered Woods has made its mark on the residential and commercial high-performance construction industries.
The sheathing and tape have revolutionized building enclosures by streamlining structural weatherization with an integrated water- and air-resistive barrier.
Mike Oates, product manager for ZIP System at Huber Engineered Woods, took part in the recent Energy & Environmental Building Alliance (EEBA) High Performance Home Summit in Atlanta, to work with and collaborate with builders throughout the industry.
“What can we do to make a builder’s life easier tomorrow, but then where is the industry going five, 10-plus years from now?” Oates said. “We need to make sure we’re still relevant, but hopefully leading the manufacturer offerings in that space.”
