Using a radiant barrier as a house wrap is rapidly gaining popularity. Radiant barrier is a great product for wrapping a house. The product is heavyweight, will not tear, offers a 97% reflectivity, and it is perforated, so moisture does not get trapped behind your exterior cladding.
Blocking heat at the source of entry on any home, building, barn, shed, storage facility, etc. is the key to comfort and energy savings.
AtticFoil® can be used as an air barrier and as a secondary drainage plane. In order for a radiant barrier to work as a house wrap you must have an airspace between the foil and the exterior cladding since radiant heat is only present in an air gap.
