No matter what climate you find yourself in, moisture is always an issue. It can seriously affect the overall performance of your building. The answer is rain screen cladding, which is designed to breathe. Penetration of rain is minimized and condensation is drained out through ventilation inlets and outlets. The ventilated air space serves multiple functions. The air in the designed cavity will circulate due to air pressure differentials and thermal differentials over the height of the building. In a cold climate, this causes the condensation at the rear of the cladding to dry. In a warm climate, the moving air will cool the inner layers of the construction, thus reducing the demand for cooling energy.
