A rainscreen creates an air gap between the decorative facade and the sheathing of the building. This space allows for the circulation of air across a weather resistant barrier such as TYPAR and is critical to removing potential condensation or direct water infiltration. The all important weather resistant barrier helps to prevent water molecules from entering the insulated cavity which can create an ideal environment for damaging mold conditions to develop.
Building or remodeling a single-family home or a multi-story commercial structure? The exterior of the building gets a lot of abuse from nature’s elements. LOOK BEYOND THE SURFACE… it’s what’s beyond the exterior surface — inside the building envelope — that truly impacts the safety, comfort and energy efficiency of indoor environments.
