Weather barriers keep outside weather out and conditioned interior air in. A weather barrier is part of the wall assembly; it prevents the passage of moisture, rain and wind through critical areas of the walls and roof and protects vulnerable building components from deterioration.
Both vapor permeable and vapor impermeable air barriers play critical roles in modern wall design. The choice of whether to implement one or the other is dependent on a wide range of factors, including climate and wall design.
Changing building codes and greater adoption of certain cladding materials have caused specifiers to take a closer look at how moisture is managed in the wall assembly. Advances in weather barrier products have added a powerful tool to help achieve these goals.
