Dryvit Donates Cladding System to New American Home

Dryvit Systems, Inc. has donated its highly energy-efficient Residential MD System to The New American Home, which will be open for tours during next week’s International Builders’ Show in Orlando.

The system was chosen for the show home because of its third-party proven energy-efficient qualities and superior moisture drainage performance.

According to data released by the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Dryvit systems are at least 84% more energy-efficient than the next best-tested cladding.

On average, Dryvit Systems exterior cladding lowers heating and cooling costs by 20% to 30% annually.

“We are so pleased with The New American Home program that we have agreed to participate in the 2009 show home in Las Vegas as well,” said Barbara Catlow, manager of marketing services for Dryvit. “Our residential system offers truly differentiated energy efficiency and we are pleased to showcase that attribute on the New American Home.”

Dryvit routinely supports green building practices, and this is the third consecutive year that the company has participated in The New American Home program.
