ZIP System Long Length Sheathing

Go Vertical for a Great Build.

Get all the benefits of long length wall sheathing AND the superior moisture protection and air barrier that ZIP System® long length sheathing provides.

Any long length wall sheathing can reduce the number of horizontal joints and the need for blocking, but these walls still rely on traditional housewrap to complete the job. Only ZIP System® long length sheathing combines the benefits of a longer panel with the ability to completely eliminate housewrap. Can your long length sheathing do that?
