Our house is around 70 years old, and it has desperately needed a major makeover. It was covered with these natural wood shakes that were inexplicably painted over white, long before we moved in, and that paint was cracked and peeling. In addition, the windows were clunky and old fashioned and less well insulated than they ought to be.
So right now, our house is naked — all the old siding has been ripped off, and the windows are in the process of being replaced with modern, well-insulated glass. Now that the old hideous slabs of wood have been removed, we’re going to get new siding shortly…but before you put on the siding, you have to cover it with house wrap to add a little more insulation and provide a moisture seal. I have discovered that our contractor isn’t just using familiar Tyvek. This is what part of our house is covered with now: WRAPTOR!
It’s silly, but I kind of like the idea that our house will be shielded by an invisible layer of dinosaurs.
