Brick Masonry Rainscreen Facades

Rain penetration through the exterior walls can affect building performance and appearance. If not immediately addressed, water infiltration into brick masonry assemblies can corrode metal accessories such as shelf angles and ties, cause efflorescence on exterior surfaces, crack bricks and mortar joints through freeze-thaw cycles of trapped moisture, and damage interior finishes.

This session will review the two primary approaches to protection from rainwater infiltration being employed in today’s rain screen designs.

Brad Prestbo AIA, CDT, CSI and Gerry Gutierrez AIA, CDT of Sasaki return to share their wisdom.

For those who qualify, 2 LU/HSWs are available.
