Selling property can be a challenge—one that’s magnified dramatically if the structure faces the damaging effects of mold and rot. In an upscale Doylestown, Pa., neighborhood, improper sill flashing and reverse through-flashing on window openings are contributing to these 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 Benjamin Obdyke’s HydroGap drainable housewrap and HydroFlash self-adhered flashing to help filter the water out of the building envelope. As AI Restoration’s universal water management system for siding installations, the manufacturer’s products are made to effectively manage moisture and increase the life of structures following remediation.
