Nichiha Lunch and Learn

For Architects and Contractors: A lunch and learn seminar by Nichiha.

Moisture intrusion in a wall system can be the cause of building defects, as well as health ailments for the building's occupants, making rainscreens a very important tool in water mitigation. This course will review the cause and effects of moisture intrusion, and more specifically the forces that drive rainwater into a building. We will identify different rainscreen technologies and ASTM testing standards that measure their performance. We will discuss fiber cement panels and how they can be used as a rainscreen to reduce moisture build-up, rotting interior walls and mold growth. By the end of the course you will understand basic design approaches and guidelines for installing fiber cement.


Seminar is free of charge but please RSVP to by May 15th
