GreenGuard RainDrop Building Wrap
Drains water better than any other wrap.
GreenGuard has reinvented RainDrop, the first building wrap with innovative drainage channels, to make it even more effective. New RainDrop 3D features an increased channel depth, allowing it to manage moisture better than any other wrap on the market. Plus unlike other wraps, the channels won’t crimp, collapse, or flatten, no matter how tightly siding is nailed to the wall. Thanks to its enhanced design, RainDrop 3D drains 50% more water than Tyvek® DrainWrap™, helping keep your walls safe and dry.
Saves energy and money by reducing air leakage.
Did you know that air leakage can account for 30% or more of your home’s heating and cooling costs? 2 As a recognized air barrier, RainDrop 3D improves your home’s energy efficiency by significantly reducing air leakage through exterior walls. The wrap not only helps save money on new homes, but also on existing homes of all ages. As part of an energy-efficient retrofit, an over 100-year-old home had RainDrop 3D installed over the existing siding prior to the installation of new siding.3 Air leakage was reduced by 20%, with an estimated energy savings of about 10% per year.
Multi-functional wrap is three products in one.
With its enhanced air and moisture management, RainDrop 3D outperforms typical wraps. It meets all the building code requirements of an air barrier, a water-resistive barrier, and a drainage wrap. By providing everything in a single package, RainDrop 3D eliminates the need to install three separate products on your home, thereby reducing material and labor costs. Drains water better than any other wrap. Multi-functional wrap is three products in one.

Keep heat where it belongs:
inside your home.
There’s a phenomenon called “thermal bridging,” in which heat and energy escape through the studs of your home’s walls. CraneBoard® Solid Core Siding® is engineered to dramatically reduce it. The illustrations below give you a good picture of how this all works.
Framing studs are not insulated, which means heat escapes through them from your home. The yellow area shows how heat transfers through the studs.
CraneBoard, shown in blue, cuts down on the energy you lose through the studs of your home’s walls.
