Rain screen systems: The smart way to avoid moisture-related wall failures

Water and moisture problems in the building envelope can lead to costly call-backs, structural damage, and even litigation. Wind-driven rain and high interior moisture can penetrate building materials. More stringent energy codes and increased amounts of insulation reduce air movement and extend material drying time. Over time, this moisture can build up in the cladding, sheathing, and walls, leading to material decay and worse.

Get a first-hand look at the effects of poor moisture management from Building Science Consultant, Steve Easley. Learn how these problems can be avoided by installing a rain screen system that enables walls to drain, deflect, and dry.
