What It's About:

A demo at the 2017 HPBZ

Homes and buildings today are designed so tight and energy efficient that great care must be taken in a building's design to allow for the proper exchange of air and moisture mitigation. It is not uncommon nowadays for buildings to have insulation on the inside and the outside. When designing such energy efficient structures, rain screen systems create a simple and effective way of allowing trapped moisture to pass through to the outside effectively. Failure to remove trapped moisture creates problems with moisture that can be costly to repair. In this presentation, you'll learn more about the cost and benefits of a rainscreen system. 

Presented by Keene Building Products.
