This simple installation helps to keep Spinnaker Point home exteriors looking like new by preventing deterioration issues caused by trapped moisture.

    Driwall™ Rainscreen is an extruded polymer matrix of monofilaments that is heat-welded to a non-woven, breathable fabric. This structure creates an airspace in the wall cavity, allowing moisture to evaporate and ventilate, and liquid moisture to drain through properly. This prevents problems in exterior cavity walls, including mold, efflorescence and cracking.
