FLUID APPLIED WEATHER RESISTIVE BARRIER
Fluid applied air and moisture barriers are water-resistive barrier that stop both air and water leakage in multiple wall construction types. These barriers are available for cavity walls, masonry veneer construction, stucco, EIFS and most other wall assemblies.
Fluid applied weather barriers provide a means to reduce condensation and energy loss caused by air leaks through the wall assembly. This in turn saves you the owner many headaches as they are a primary means to minimize the risk of water damage to sheathing and associated repair or replacement costs. These barriers are roll or spray applied over a building substrate and quickly dry to form a rubberized, highly-durable, water-resistant membrane; forming a membrane that can function as both a vapor barrier and an air/water resistive barrier. Of all of the fluid applied air barrier contractors in northwest Arkansas, only Martin’s Plastering & Stucco Co. can handle all aspects of installing this barrier and the subsequent wall finishes that you desire.

Does you wall construction require a high level of protection from the passage of air, liquid water and water vapor?
WEATHER RESISTIVE BARRIER
What is the purpose of the weather resistive barrier? As a component in the overall wall system the weather barrier plays the roll of stopping migration of moisture particles as well as droplets of water from migrating further into your wall cavity. Dew point, wind driven rain, etc all play a part in the water content inside of you walls. The weather barrier acts as a line of defense to keep moisture in the appropriate area and prevent it from causing adverse conditions such as structural damage, wood rot, and even mold. Fluid applied weather barriers provide an extra level of assurance that you barrier is consistent due to the coverage forming an integral component adhered directly to a substrate. Careful attention must be made for all types of weather barrier installations but a fluid applied weather barrier allows for a more thorough inspection giving you confidence in its consistency across your wall.
