Dry homes are
healthier homes

We believe in healthy homes for everyone - built to the highest possible environmental and living standards.

Healthier homes for you and your family.

Manage moisture in your home with our advanced product.

Damp houses create perfect environments for mould and dust mites to grow. The health impacts of this can vary but can include asthma, headaches, fatigue, coughing, sneezing, dizziness, and irritation of the eyes, nose, throat and skin.

Cold, damp conditions are not just a factor for older homes. New truss and frame homes usually achieve a 2-3 Homestar rating and can still have levels of cold and dampness because they are not airtight and have many thermal bridging points.

“According to a 2015 BRANZ survey, almost half of New Zealand’s homes have mould. Mould, with its tiny spores, is at the root of many respiratory illnesses and asthma as well as some forms of gastroenteritis. Dust mites also thrive in humid environments, which can exacerbate allergies in some people.” (Smarter Homes NZ)

selectSIP panels are water-stable and made from non-nutrient materials – this means that our sheathing won’t support the growth of mould.
