Boston Cedar Named as a Home Slicker® Plus Typar® Distributor

Boston Cedar, which was honored as the Fiberweb 2009 Distributor of the Year, adds Home Slicker® Plus Typar® to its distribution offering.

Holbrook, MA, August 16, 2010 --( Home Slicker® Plus Typar® is a cost-effective, labor-saving, moisture-eliminating rainscreen-weather resistant barrier. Each roll contains the patented Home Slicker three-dimensional matrix bonded to Typar, a premium residential and commercial grade housewrap. This simple design allows users to install the combination rainscreen-weather resistant barrier in half the time and promotes best practice for managing moisture sidewall applications. Each roll of Home Slicker Plus Typar is 39 in. wide x 61 ½ ft. long and covers 200 square feet.

“With the increased acceptance of rainscreen construction over the past decade in both the United States and Canada, this agreement will be a win-win situation for Fiberweb, Benjamin Obdyke, and the customers of both companies,” said Typar Business Director, Bob Dahl. “We have a great working relationship with Benjamin Obdyke and we’re excited at the prospects of expanding that relationship to benefit Typar customers throughout North America with an increased breadth of product offerings.”

Based in Holbrook, Massachusetts, Boston Cedar serves a large base of independent lumber and building materials dealers throughout the Northeastern United States. The company established its name in the LBM industry by focusing on individual customer needs and delivering innovative marketing solutions with top quality products and programs.
