10. What’s the difference between a woven and nonwoven houswrap?

Wovens and nonwovens are two different approaches to creating a fabric material, which can be used in the manufacture of housewrap. The key difference between a woven and nonwoven housewrap is the method in which vapor permeability is achieved. Woven housewraps tend to require micro-perforations to allow vapor permeability, whereas nonwovens do not. This is important because micro-perforations can decrease the water resistance of the housewrap.
