Why Air and Vapor Barriers?
The majority of problems a building endures are due to moisture, and
its impact on the degradation of components. When moisture enters
a building envelope via air leakage and then fluctuates with different
temperatures and time periods, it can rot envelope components, rust
and decay structural supports, and damage exterior finishes.
Mar-flex Waterproofing and Building Products is committed to
demystifying the proper use of air barriers, and air and vapor barriers,
to assure the proper installation of building envelopes that are
effective, efficient, and green.
