(YORK, Pa.) - Wolf Home Products today announced an agreement to distribute BLOCK-IT® House Wrap, a new Kimberly-Clark product, throughout its east coast service area.

Kimberly-Clark’s patented technology channels liquid away from wall assemblies directly to the ground, helping contractors and homeowners keep building structures dry for years. It lessens the transfer of radiant heat into and out of a structure, which can save homeowners money on heating and cooling costs.

“BLOCK-IT*’s superior water holdout and vapor transmission properties make it an excellent offering to builders, contractors and homeowners, and it fits well with Wolf’s practice of providing building products of exceptional quality and value,” says Dominick Pileggi, Wolf’s vice president of product and market development for building products.

BLOCK-IT® House Wrap comes with a 10-year limited warranty, and is also:

  •      • >98% efficient in water drainage
  •      • 35% stronger than the leading brand
  •      • Easy to handle and install
  •      • Competitively priced with traditional house wraps
  •      • Designed to self-seal around nail and staple punctures
  •      • Surfactant resistant
  •      • GreenGuard Gold-certified for low emissivity

For manufacturer Kimberly-Clark, this new relationship is an opportunity to bring its products to a new market by way of a successful, growing partner.

“The entire Kimberly-Clark team is excited to partner with Wolf Home Products to introduce BLOCK-IT* House Wrap to its customers,” says Craig Fairbetter, National Sales Manager of Kimberly-Clark Building Materials. “Kimberly-Clark has more than 50 years of experience producing advanced, breathable nonwoven materials and we are always looking for ways to deliver on our mission to provide ‘essentials for a better life’.”
