2 phases. 5 buildings. 8-10 stories each. ~700,000 sq. ft. of air barrier. 2 1/2 years of construction.
Proven to withstand extreme weather conditions, PROSOCO R-Guard air & water barrier-protected buildings are more durable, resilient and sustainable.
we discuss mock-ups and why every project should make them, and lament the reasons why so many don't.
All components in a wall assembly must work together as a system.
That's why we recommend (as do most building codes) a systems approach to protect your entire building.
