Trapped moisture in exterior walls is caused by condensation and water leaks. This moisture can lead to mold growth and other water related problems. SturdyBrace® “breathes” permitting the moisture to escape into the outside air.

Mold experts recommend use of wall sheathing with a minimum ASTM permeability rating of 5. SturdyBrace®
rates more than 20.0 perms while OSB and plywood have permeability ratings of 2 and less than one respectively.

SturdyBrace® is an earth-friendly fiberboard made of recovered wood fibers interlaced and bonded with asphaltic binders for strength. It is easy to install and cuts with a knife, saving you time and money.

SturdyBrace® is available coated on one or six sides.

SturdyBrace® saves energy costs at a low cost per R-value. Our wall sheathing provides R-value of 1.3 per 1/2”, more than doubling the R-Values of OSB and gypsum sheathing.

*Building codes may require use of weather resistant barrier.
