The new green

Green zip new construction

During my afternoon roam (in the sunshine!!), I spotted several buildings under construction, with this green exterior sheathing. Eye-catching green* sheathing.

Apparently, it’s all but replaced plywood and other engineered wood products for this purpose—at least for commercial buildings.

Or that’s what Zip System’s manufacturer would have you believe. Apparently, a big part of the superior qualities of the green-board lies in the breathability and air-barrier capabilities.

* Frooogy green?
