Thompson's firm creates tight building envelopes using Huber Engineered Woods' ZIP System. The roof and wall sheathing consists of structural OSB panels featuring built-in water and air barriers. Builders simply install the panels and tape the seams with the manufacturer-supplied flashing tape, making housewrap and felt unnecessary. Huber Engineered Woods, 800.933.9220 www.zipsystem.com.
