DuPont Performance Building Solutions – Recently DuPont Performance Building Solutions have conducted a study into the current performance of breather membranes that have been installed on roof elements over the last 30 years. The purpose was to analyse the long term performance of different underlay technologies in fulfilling their role as a secondary weather barrier. Results demonstrate that correct membrane technology selection can impact the expected longevity of roof and wall elements and the building as a whole.
