Bug screen at bird blocks
Bug screen is placed at the top and bottom all the way around the house. This shows the 2x2 that is placed a ¼ down from the bird blocks allowing for air flow.
This project was a custom built house and the designers had a focused effort on weather proofing. So, we installed a rain screen system. The rain screen system allows any water that gets behind the siding to escape through the bottom of it through channels between the siding and building paper.
This project like many, was completed for a real estate transaction. The buyer liked the house, but the inspection report noted dry rot in some area of the extisting T1-11 siding. d/K Exteriors removed the dry rot and resided with Hardie plank and Hardie trim. We also installed a belly band between the gable and lower section, trimmed out the windows and also installed a new garage door.
The Builder / Architect was building a high efficiency house and we did our part when we installed the new high efficiency windows . We also Installed 1/2" Dow foam board under the siding that gave the house an additional R value of 3. We also Installed a rainscreen system that allows any water that gets behind the siding to escape through channels between the siding and WRB / Foam. This provides constant airflow which is key to preventing dry rot.
