HydroGap Now ICC Evaluated!

HydroGap, manufactured by Benjamin Obdyke, recently received an evaluation report (ESR# 3394) from ICC Evaluation Service (ICC-ES), providing evidence that HydroGap Drainable Housewrap meets code requirements. Building officials, architects, contractors, specifiers, designers and others utilize ICC-ES Evaluation Reports to provide a basis for using or approving HydroGap in construction projects under the International Building and International Residential Codes.

ICC-ES President Mark Johnson explains why ICC-ES Evaluation Reports are so important. “Benjamin Obdyke can now reference the evaluation report to ensure building officials and the building industry that the product meets I-Code requirements,” Johnson said. “Building departments have a long history of using evaluation reports, and ICC-ES operates as a technical resource for the building department. Final approval of building products is always in the hands of the local regulatory agency.”

ICC-ES thoroughly examined Benjamin Obdyke’s product information, test reports, calculations, quality control methods and other factors to ensure the product is code-compliant.
