Housewrap Takes Center Stage in New CertainTeed® Webisode and Music Video

(Valley Forge, Pa.) – CertainTeed has launched their third webisode in the Living Spaces® Exterior Home Makeover series along with a music video featuring original new music. Titled “That’s a Wrap,” the webisode showcases the benefits of installing CertaWrap™ weather resistant barrier used to protect homes from air and moisture damage.

Join the Pohl family of Pewamo, Mich. — the grand prize winner of the CertainTeed $75,000 Exterior Living Spaces™ contest — as they continue along their journey of the transformation of their 112-year-old farmhouse.

The “That’s a Wrap” webisode documents the benefits of installing CertaWrap housewrap, which provides an added layer of protection against air and moisture damage for the exterior of a home. CertaWrap also helps reduce heating and cooling costs by preventing air infiltration and leakage through gaps, cracks or holes.

In addition, a new CertainTeed music video “The CertaWrap™ Song,” which is fun viewing for the entire family, has made its debut on Facebook and YouTube. Watch as “The Shame of the Land” tells the story about how CertainTeed’s CertaWrap™ keeps the home comfortable, warm and protected from the elements. 

Check out the webisodes at the CertainTeed Living Spaces Facebook page ( or YouTube channel ( Also, stay tuned for additional webisodes that will air approximately every two weeks.
