Work on our new construction Avenue Meadows homes continues with installation of the Home Wrap, the exterior fiber cement board siding, and roof decking. Meanwhile on the inside, plumbing and electrical work continues.
Have you ever wondered what your walls are made of? It’s something you don’t often think about, trusting and assuming that they will keep good things in and bad things out. You have enough to worry about besides the durability and reliability of your home's outside walls – which is why Avenue works closely with our architects and builders to ensure we are using quality materials and construction methods on all of the new homes we sell.
Above you can see the DuPont™ Tyvek® HomeWrap® which goes on after OSB panels and before the siding. This prevents the infiltration of air and water while allowing water vapor to escape which prevents mold and rot. It’s engineered to keep homes cool in the summer, warm in the winter, and dry year around.
After the HomeWrap goes the unpainted fiber cement board. That’s right – this stuff is made of cement! This means it stands up to the wet and hot weather for which we know and love Houston. It’s also fire-resistant, pest-resistant, impact-resistant, long lasting, and good looking. For our current Avenue Meadows homes, we are using HardiePlank which carries a 50-year manufacturer’s warranty.
