Managing Building Envelope Moisture for Long-term Durability
The building enclosure or envelope consists of many components that must work together. The components include controls for thermal, air, water, and vapor barriers for heat, air and moisture management. That's why it's critical for building professionals to design buildings with long life in mind through materials selection, the placement of materials within the building assemblies, as well as design. This white paper takes a look at the importance of weather resistive barriers and how it manages moisture in a building's envelope.
