Moisture management is essential to protecting a building and its occupants from experiencing damage caused by excessive moisture accumulation. Building materials exposed to prolonged damp conditions can lead to mold, bacteria growth, steel corrosion, and failure of adhesives. Well-designed, properly installed masonry flashing systems are essential components of an overall moisture management strategy. Join us to learn best practices for flashing at critical locations like base of wall, sills, window heads, copings, and roof-to-wall interfaces. You’ll walk away with a better understanding of appropriate flashing materials, weeps, ventilation strategies, and drip edges to help you create an optimal design and installation.
