Enclosing Your Home
Once the framing has undergone inspection, your builder will begin enclosing your home. At this point in the construction process your builder will install exterior sheathing, shingles, the roofing system, windows and doors. Since windows and doors are one of the most visible features of your home from both the inside and out, you'll want to carefully select the perfect doors and windows for your new home. Make sure your windows have the performance, durability and energy efficiency that your particular geographical location warrants.
Certain climates offer a higher risk of moisture, mold and wood rot occurring in the home. Therefore, a protective barrier known as a house wrap is installed to prevent the structure of your home and its interior from getting wet. The house wrap ensures that all moisture will remain outside the home.
