The Features and Benefits of GreenGuard® DC14 Drainage Mat

Your siding in Arlington, VA, plays a significant role in protecting your home from the elements. Without the necessary features, its performance might be compromised, threatening your home’s structural integrity over time.

At Colonial Remodeling, we offer an exclusive Home Protection System that will boost your home’s energy efficiency. Along with James Hardie® fiber cement siding and HardieWrap™, we also exclusively offer the GreenGuard® DC14 Drainage Mat for superior performance. Here’s how it works:

The Features and Benefits of DC14 Drainage Mat

The DC14 Drainage Mat is a rain screen system designed for effective water drainage and air movement between exterior wall cladding and wall sheathing. It features drainage channels on both sides, allowing enough space for airflow while directing water away from your walls. This helps regulate your indoor temperature through the shifting seasons, relieving the burden on your HVAC system.

Including this system in your James Hardie siding installation in Alexandria, VA, will eliminate all the issues caused by water buildup, sparing you costly repairs by preventing damage in your foundation. It will also boost your energy efficiency by keeping your cellulose or fiberglass insulation intact. This helps improve your comfort levels while reducing your energy bills.

The system is built to resist moisture and mold, ensuring a healthy indoor environment. Built with extruded polystyrene (XPS), it drains and dries quicker than open-weave plastic mats, enabling your siding to maintain its peak performance for many years.
