HalfbackH20 Premium Siding Insulation Installed Under Fiber Cement During Mold Remediation Remodel
?We believe that HalfbackH20 Premium is the perfect product for us to add insulation to these remodeled homes while resting easy knowing it will help effectively manage moisture from day one.” -Joe Yurick, General Manager
Atlantic Remediation and Restoration Contractors (ARRC) in Pennsylvania specializes in correcting moisture damage in homes. They recently had a job in Wilmington, DE where faulty installation of stucco exterior covering had caused severe damage to the home.
The project in Wilmington, Delaware began when the homeowner found water leaking through the chimney and most wall areas of the stucco house.
?Stucco is widely recognized as a strong exterior covering for homes throughout the United States? says Joe Yurick, General Manager for ARRC.
?If stucco is applied incorrectly, or if window and door openings fail due to poor manufacture or improper installation, moisture can seep in and become trapped inside the walls? says Yurick.?This can result in mold and rot that devours sheathing and structural wood, which is exactly what happened with this house.?
To correct the damage, ARRC replaced all the wood-framed windows, restructured and supported the window and chimney areas, and replaced all damaged wood framing members.
HalfbackH20 Premium siding insulation was then installed on top of new wood sheathing and housewrap, with fiber cement siding finishing the job.
“When we correct moisture and mold damage, we do it right so the homeowner never has to experience something like that again” says Joe Yurick, General Manager for ARRC.
“We believe that HalfbackH20 Premium is the perfect product for us to add insulation to these remodeled homes while resting easy knowing it will help effectively manage moisture from day one.”
