The single largest issue in masonry wall design is the compatibility of various products that must work together to achieve the desired results. This can include air barrier systems, thru-wall flashings, and reinforcement/anchoring systems. Chris Bupp will discuss the importance of sourcing materials as well as designating a single contractor to ensure compatibility of all building processes.
1) Cover air/vapor barrier basics
2) Discuss applications: fluid applied vs. sheet applied products, permeable vs. non-permeable
3) Discuss using anchoring systems successfully with air & vapor barriers, and their compatibility of various flashing materials
4) Limiting mold problems with moisture management systems
