Scope of WorkThe General Contractor Hess Construction asked our team of experts to install a fluid applied air barrier for this project. Fluid Applied Air Barrier offer a number of performance advantages. Fluid applied air barriers are used in all types of wall construction projects including the use of gypsum and cement-based sheathings. Most fluid applied barriers consist of:
- Joint and fastener treatment products that include options for treating sheathing joints, rough openings, inside and outside corners, and small cracks.
- Fabrics, meshes and tapes used in conjunction with the joint and fastener treatment products to reinforce the treated areas.
- A coating that is spray, roller, or trowel applied over the entire substrate.
