Water damage is one of the issues many homeowners have to battle with. If this problem is not dealt with comprehensively, it may lead to structural issues and create a ripe ground for the growth of mildew and mold. If your home has water damage, the best advice is to address the issue as soon as you can. Many times, contractors propose patching stucco, but this is not the best solution.
The moisture that older homes struggle with is usually trapped behind EIFS walls. Instead of worrying about the stucco, the real problem may actually be the wall right behind it. This can be solved by DenGlass framing.
DenGlass is one of the best ways and most recognized processes to prevent moisture intrusion into your home. It does this by creating a barrier that prevents moisture and mold from forming on the surface. If you suspect that you have water seepage into your interior walls, give us a call and we will assess the problem.
How DenGlass Framing WorksThere is a barrier made of moisture-resistant materials in almost every home. However, the materials that were used for this barrier are of the older type and they are no longer as effective in protecting your home. DenGlass is the latest in this space.
DenGlass products are constructed using lots of different water-resistant materials which work together to ensure moisture is kept out. At our Baltimore company, we install boards that are made of fiberglass, gypsum, mesh, and many other building materials. This helps you to create a drier and more protected envelop free of any water damage threat. The cladding type created by DenGlass protects your home against wind, humidity, rain, and other elements.
DenGlass sheathing comes in different thickness and length. You can get 0.5-inch thickness with a width of 4 inch and up to 10 inches in length. If you need customized size, they can also be made on order. DenGlass is much preferred as a substrate under stone, brick, stucco, and EIFS. To avoid expenses and headaches of deterioration, delamination, warping, and sagging, ensure you specify DenGlass sheathing for your project.
Apart from its mold-resistance and strength, DenGlass is much easier to handle during installation. It’s light in weight and can be easily cut and fastened using standard fasteners and drywall tools. Compared to cement board, DenGlass is easier to work with.
To get the most from DenGlass, it must be installed right. Luckily, in Baltimore, you can get in touch with our EIFS installation experts to help you out. Though manufacturers have manual printouts showing the process, you need skilled and experienced hands to give you the best result.
DenGlass can be attached perpendicular or parallel to metal or wood framing. The fasteners should not be countersunk, but instead driven flush with the counter surface.
When installed right, DenGlass can serve you for a very long period and protect your residential and commercial building from structural damage. If you are looking for an expert in Baltimore to help in DenGlass framing, get in touch with us.
