Rainscreen wall assembly is the proven method for handling water that may penetrate through cladding. Once water has passed through cladding, it’s necessary to ensure that it can escape rather than collecting behind the siding. Should water collect, there is substantial risk of mold or rot.

During the construction process, the outer layer of a wall assembly is separated from the inner wall by an air space. The air space is crafted with vertical furring strips or rainscreen drainage mats in order to permit water to flow out at the bottom. Rainscreen systems are long-lasting and energy efficient, establishing protection from incidental moisture infiltration by ensuring that water naturally travels out.
