Position Statement
  • Home Slicker Plus Typar is a cost-effective, labor saving moisture eliminating rainscreen and weather resistant barrier. Each roll contains the patented Home Slicker three-dimensional matrix bonded to Typar, the premium residential and commercial grade housewrap. This simple design allows you to install double the sidewall protection in half the time.


  • A 3-dimensional polypropylene matrix with vertical channels, heat bonded to a weather resistant barrier. Home Slicker Plus Typar is attached to the exterior wall behind the siding or cladding system.

Bottom Detail
  • To prevent insect infiltration along bottom edge of siding, attach Slicker Screen along the wall 3” above bottom edge of Home Slicker Plus Typar. Fold up onto outer surface of installed Home Slicker Plus Typar and fasten with a large head nail to hold in place prior to applying siding or cladding.

Top Detail
  • Run Home Slicker Plus Typar flush with soffit overhang. Attach Slicker Screen over top 6” of product across span of wall. Install a 1”x3” board at top of wall. Install siding within 4” of soffit overhang. Install a 1”x4” finish trim board or 4” piece of siding over the 1”x3” board. This will allow for air movement behind the cladding allowing convective drying and ventilation to occur.
