Moisture Drainage Management for homes
Moisture from rainfall can be a serious problem for many homes and buildings, particularly if it builds up behind the exterior cladding. Homes and buildings built in areas with high levels of rainfall each year – 20- to 60+ inches – can benefit from having a moisture drainage system installed. Many builders are aware of this fact, and are beginning to incorporate different practices to help manage and direct the moisture that may try to infiltrate the home. Homeowners may be put off by the initial expense of these types of systems, but installing them can help prevent larger, more costly problems down the road. There are numerous methods you can use to help with moisture drainage management from rainscreens to wall systems; each method has its benefits that can make it attractive to builders and homeowners alike.
