Water and Air Barrier

The Above Photo is the Water and Vapor Barrier used to seal the wall frame. This material is recycled Billboard Sign Material. The true R-Value of the Material is not known. We do know that the material is Ten Times stronger and thicker than normal vapor barriers on the Market today.
