The Importance of Rainscreens

Andrew will explain how rainscreens are not simply a product; but an assembly comprised of building components installed by different trades. But when the different trades use different terminology, how do we come to a common language? This session explains the various components of a rainscreen assembly, the functions the rainscreen provides, as well as how to actively and effectively communicate the “rainscreen language” throughout the construction and design industry.
