Fanfold Underlayment Reduces Air Infiltration
Guard® Fanfold Underlayment from Pactiv Corporation is easily installed, enhances energy efficiency and provides a smooth base for replacement siding, according to the manufacturer.
Headquartered in Lake Forest, Ill., Pactiv Corp. is a member of the National Council of the Housing Industry — the Supplier 100 of NAHB.
Easy-to-cut, GreenGuard stays flat to provide a solid, level base for new siding, according to Pactiv Corp. Made of extruded polystyrene foam with clear flexible plastic facers, it provides superior resistance to moisture and humidity that helps prevent warping, crumbling or delamination.
The underlayment increases energy efficiency by sharply reducing air infiltration into the wall cavity.
GreenGuard’s fanfold design is highly resistant to cracking, denting and tearing. One side is printed with grid lines for alignment and cutting, says Pactiv Corp.
The product is sold in a two-square bundle, 4-foot x 50-foot; when installed over old siding it provides a continuous layer of thermal and air infiltration protection.
