Air Barriers

Stony Creek Services also installs a wide variety of air and vapor barrier systems. Air barrier systems can help provide for better building performance by reducing operating costs. This is accomplished by minimizing the amount of uncontrolled air leakage which allows for greater control over temperature and humidity. Controlling these aspects of building function also lowers the possibility for mold growth and increases air quality.

Air barrier systems are typically applied in either a sheet membrane or in a fluid-applied fashion. Sheet membranes are more typically used over exterior sheathing materials such as densglass or plywood/OSB. Fluid-applied air barriers are usually reserved for more porous substrates like masonry and concrete, although they may be installed over common exterior sheathing products also.
