Air barriers are installed to control the movement of air and moisture through a building assembly. The air barrier system seals the building enclosure and protects the building from harmful effects of air leakage.
Uncontrolled air leakage can have costly effects on how a building functions, and even shorten the life span of a building. It’s important that air barriers be properly designed and installed to create an airtight building enclosure.
Air Barrier Installation
Air barrier systems are comprised of several different materials which are pieced together to provide a complete and continuous barrier. A complete air barrier system will seal together all sides of the building, the seams around windows and doors, and the separations within a building.
