5 Reasons FPS Weathertight Wrap is More Cost Effective than Standard Building Paper or Wrap

Using the latest European 3-layer membranes has gotta be expensive right? While our FPS Weathertight Wrap might have a higher upfront cost, it saves you money in the long run.

As someone passionate about builder better, I know the importance of getting the job done right, on time, and within budget. That’s why I’m passionate about Frame Protection Systems (FPS) and our revolutionary weathertight wrap and underlay membrane.

Now, I know what you might be thinking: “Isn’t all building wrap pretty much the same?” Not quite.

At Frame Protection System, our passion is to build better. Using the latest European technology, our Weathertight range offers superior 3-layer membranes that have significant advantages over traditional building paper and wrap systems.

Gotta be expensive right?

While our FPS Weathertight Wrap might have a higher upfront cost, it saves you money in the long run.

Here’s why:

1. Built to Last, Built to Save

Our weathertight wrap isn’t your average building paper. It’s a tough, three-layer European membrane designed to withstand the elements.

That means fewer repairs and replacements down the track, saving you money on maintenance over the years.

2. Energy Efficiency Means Money in Your Pocket

FPS Weathertight Wrap and underlay is brilliant at keeping moisture out and valuable heat in. This creates a much more energy-efficient building envelope.

In simpler terms, your heating and cooling systems won’t have to work as hard, which translates to lower power bills for you.

3. Get the Job Done Faster

Time is money, and FPS Weathertight Wrap is designed to save you both. It’s easy to use and install, meaning your builders can get the job done quicker.

That translates to less labour time and keeps your project on track.

4. Work Through Any Weather

Mother Nature can be unpredictable, but your building project doesn’t have to be. Unlike traditional paper wrap that gets soggy and damaged in the rain, FPS Weathertight Wrap shrugs off the elements.

This means you can keep construction going even in bad weather, avoiding costly delays and potential re-work.

5. Reduced Risk of Damage and Less Waste

Let’s face it, building sites can be a bit rough on materials. The good news is, FPS Weathertight Wrap is built tough. Its weatherproof and tear-resistant properties mean it’s less likely to get damaged during construction compared to traditional wrap.

That translates to fewer ripped rolls and wasted materials, keeping your overall project costs down.

Bonus: An Investment That Pays Off

Here’s the real kicker: FPS Weathertight Wrap helps create a stronger, more durable building. That translates to a higher resale value for your home and less risk of moisture problems down the road. So, you’re not just saving money today, you’re making a smart investment for the future.

At FPS, we’re confident that our weathertight wrap is the smarter choice for your Kiwi build. Want to know more?
