WHAT DO THEY DO?
WHAT SHOULD YOU KNOW?
Calgary Stucco | For most of us, our home is the largest financial investment. We want our homes to look good and have great curb appeal. But have you ever thought of what is under your cladding (meaning stucco, siding, or other finishes on the exterior wall)? Well, its your building envelope. You building envelope is what keeps you safe and dry. It sheds or repels water from entering your home. Was it done correctly, were the windows you just replaced tied back into the envelope? It is extremely important to have your envelope sealed and working properly.
Here Are a Few Things About
Calgary Stucco | Deterring water is the most-effective water thing that can be done off the outside face of the wall. This will be diverter flashings, proper window flashings, proper size eavestroughing, and downspout flow along with other methods.
Drainage would be next on the list because it redirects any water that enters the cladding. (stucco, siding, vinyl or other wall coverings over your envelope) It is important to ensure drained water is directed away from the building.
Wall systems including stucco should allow for drying but should not be relied on to the same extent as deflection and drainage. Breathable stucco is excellent for this aspect of drainage.
