Watch Ben Bogie, residential builder and production manager from Portland, Maine, as he walks us through all the steps necessary to install ZIP System wall sheathing on a home. Zip System is a sheathing-panel system where the air-control layer and water-resistive barrier are integrated as a factory-applied coating on the outside of the panels. Seams and penetrations are sealed with specially made ZIP System flashing tape or fluid-applied flashing membrane to create a weathertight assembly. The installation process is straightforward, but there are a few details you need to pay attention to, which Ben will demonstrate in this video series.
