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. This webinar will discuss the importance of sourcing all materials from a single supplier as well as designating a single contractor to ensure compatibility of all building processes. This webinar will cover several learning points:
– Air/Vapor barrier basics: Fluid applied vs. sheet applied products as well as permeable vs. non-permeable
– Using anchoring systems successfully with air & vapor barriers
– Advantages/disadvantages and compatibility of various flashing materials
– Limiting mold problems with moisture management systems
