The exterior walls of a home contain what is known as the building envelope. The building envelope is a system of components that separates the interior of the home from the outside. Maybe the building envelope’s most important responsibility is keeping rain and other moisture from getting into the home. It also controls the flow of heat and air between the interior and exterior. If the building envelope was improperly installed and fails, the result can be water entering the wall system or potentially even entering the interior of the home. Water getting through the building envelope can result in rot and deterioration of the framing that supports a home, damage to the interior of the home, and mold or other moisture conditions harmful to the occupants of the home.
