If you are looking for better moisture management and energy efficiency for your home, rainscreen is the answer. By establishing an air cavity directly beneath the cladding that is ventilated at both the top and bottom of the wall, rainscreen is an exterior cladding system that sits away from a building’s outside wall’s water-resistant barrier and may aid to safeguard the essential envelope. Rainscreens are vital because no wall is waterproof. A To protect walls from this damage, rainscreen acts as a shield. With a minimum 1/8″ drainage gap, rainscreens are a cost-effective and robust defensive mechanism. Unlike a weather-resistant barrier, a rainscreen should be thought of as a support system for the building envelope rather than a barrier that prevents water from entering. Instead, a rainscreen is intended to lessen the quantity of water that may possibly come into touch with the moisture barrier of the principal building envelope, decreasing the likelihood that water will infiltrate the wall assembly. It accomplishes this by protecting the wall assembly from the five forces—kinetic energy, gravity, capillary action, surface tension, and pressure gradients—that cause rain to penetrate structures.
Thermally isolated rainscreen solutions from Affordable Siding are exceptional systems that not only develop an air cavity that assists in reducing the amount of water that contacts the building’s primary envelope but also offer a solution for attaching virtually any type of cladding to highly effective support systems, such as a solution for true constant insulation. therefore significantly improving the building’s energy efficiency and safeguarding the important and delicate primary building envelope.
Our rainscreen systems provide the following benefits:
The expertise and professionalism of our team greatly reduce the labor cost of installation for you. We can provide high-quality work at a very low cost. There are two primary types of rainscreen: 1. Drained and ventilated: Any entering moisture can drain or evaporate and vent to the outside with rainscreen cladding systems that are vented and drained. In this situation, the façade must be detailed to prevent infiltrating water from bridging the space between the rainscreen and the interior wall structure. 2. Pressure-equalised (PE): Systems of rainscreen cladding that are pressure-equalized (PE) let air flow between the interior and outside of the rainscreen. In order to prevent water from being forced or sucked through the joints of the rainscreen, the pressure across it is equalized.
