Rainscreen

Rainscreen

The idea behind a wood siding rain screen is pretty straightforward: keep the wood siding far enough away from the house's outside sheathing. The siding forms the "rain screen" and shields your house from the harsh external elements. You can keep snow, rain, sleet, wind-driven rain, and more out of your home. A "wall cavity" is made by separating the siding from the outer sheathing. The several uses for the wall cavity are all excellent.

How a Rain Screen Benefits Your Home's Wall Cavity:

  1. Bulk water that collects behind your siding due to rain, snow, wind-driven rain, or sleet can now drain out the bottom of the wall cavity. (Without a wall cavity, the same moisture would be retained behind the siding, providing mold with the perfect environment for growth—darkness, high moisture, and a supply of food.)
  2. The home now has a route for any moisture that is trapped inside to escape. Without a wall cavity, indoor moisture would become trapped between the siding and the sheathing of the house. There is no benefit to having mold grow and spread. Mold growth increases the risk of corrosion and rot, which shortens the structure’s overall lifespan.
  3. Mold, mildew, and rot can, at best, lead to unpleasant odors and poor living conditions, and, at worst, structural issues.
  4. The majority of homes developed after 1975 are frequently so closely built that a wall cavity can be the only place for moisture to escape.

Wood Working

Due to their durability and affordability, redwood, cedar, and pressure-treated wood are three popular choices for wood decks. For years, cedar has been used for decking because it is naturally resistant to rot, insects, and moisture, and it does not bend, twist, or split like other types of wood. If you want something less expensive than cedar or redwood, pressure-treated lumber is a good option. Deck builders in the United States use it to construct deck support systems because it is durable.
