Selling a home can be a challenge – one that’s magnified dramatically if the structure faces the damaging effects of mold and rot. In an upscale Doylestown, Penn., neighborhood, improper sill flashing and reverse through-flashing on window openings were contributing to severe moisture management issues in a series of stucco homes.
AI Restoration, a local construction and repair firm specializing in stucco, tested for water damage in a number of homes in the community. Analysis showed extensive damage and the firm recommended adding a drainable housewrap and self-adhered flashing to help filter the water out of the building envelope. As a universal water management system for siding installations, properly installed drainable housewraps with flashing are proven to effectively manage moisture and increase the life of structures following remediation.
