Let's Talk About Rainscreen (Or Is It Rain Screen?)
It's funny. When you type rainscreen into a field that detects misspellings, it is determined misspelled. Wikipedia to the rescue, it turns out computers have no idea that it is even a word. Ironically, neither do many of the architects, contractors, and consultants that work on the majority of projects today. In fact, most people who claim to understand it can't even define it.In this episode of the Building Materials Podcast, we introduce to the audience Michael Moorhouse. Michael is a building materials consultant in the Mid Atlantic region who specializes in rainscreen solutions. He has been working in sales and promotion of architectural products for a little over a decade. Currently, he is with ISAarchitectural, a manufacturer's representative group based in Washington, DC. Michael and Andy discuss all things rainscreen in this episode. Why it is needed. What the impacts are without it. What it means. How it works. How to accomplish it with various materials. Designing and building with a rainscreen will make your building envelope last longer and save you money in maintenance.
