The Abandoned Mansion gets an Insulated Rain Coat

Matt is back at the ranch with Matt Carriker for an update on the abandoned mansion project. So what can we learn from de-skinning a home? According to Carriker, about 80% of the things we saw were to be expected, but other things noticed involved mold. As a budding professional builder, Carriker has learned a lot about framing and details that come into play when putting things back together. Today, they’re getting a load of 300 sheets of Zip-R sheathing, a standard zip sheathing that’s been bonded to insulation on the backside, along with a green waterproofing facer on the front side. Watch them use this Zip System R Sheathing to insulate and waterproof the new house.
