This free 45-minute presentation discussed the four basic wetting potentials that above grade exterior wall assemblies are subject to due to the differing climates between indoor and outdoor climates. These barriers need to be identified and located properly within the assembly in order for the assembly to effectively deal with the wetting potentials. This presentation identifies these four barriers, informs participants which barriers will deal with what potentials and show the participants where to locate the barriers based on their physical properties in order to design a successful exterior wall assembly.

In addition to W&C Architect, the Webinar is also brought to you by CertainTeed, ClarkDietrich Building Systems, Extrutech Plastics Inc., Hunter Panels, Parex USA and Total Wall.
