SUMMARY:
The single largest issue in masonry design is the compatibility concerns of various products and how they must work together to achieve a thermally efficient and water resistant building. This includes air barrier systems, thru-wall flashings, and reinforcing/anchoring systems.

OBJECTIVES:

  • Identify predictable areas of the building envelope prone to water penetration.
  • Evaluate different components in the wall assembly and how they contribute to thermal performance.
  • Recognize the consequences of improper detailing.
  • Convey the importance of sourcing materials from a single supplier to ensure compatibility.
