Moisture intrusion is a common problem in single wythe masonry buildings. If the sources of moisture are not addressed, the application of additional interior and exterior coatings can lead to extensive blistering, peeling, and disbonding. This webinar addresses sources of moisture intrusion, including parapet walls, leaking gutters and downspouts, deficiencies in insulation, problems with air leakage, and poor wind-driven rain resistance of the coating.
