Our Story

WickRight Vapor Release Products Manufacturing and Installation –


Solving Chicago's wet building crisis, one building at a time.  WickRight Inc. manufactures WickRight Vapor Release Systems™ and WickRight General Contracting LLC subcontract installation of WickRight® systems.

Patented WickRight passive moisture release devices act as continuous-linear vents for parapet walls, low-slope roofs, and for hip and valley roofs and roof perimeters of gabled buildings. WickRight keeps out rain, yet lets moisture escape – helps stop water leaks, water damage and mold growth. WickRight Vapor Release Systems protect and ventilate common exterior failure points.

WickRight products are appropriate for restoration projects and new construction.
