    A drafty house that leaks humid air in winter can lead to mold forming and walls rotting. See our DIY video on how to install air barriers properly.So the short story is, despite that fact that so many builders keep putting vapour barriers on the interiors of basement walls, it is the worst thing you can do down there since the main source of moisture is not interior humidity in the air, it's the wet ground and or the concrete itself.

    Fluid air barriers are applied to the substrate using a ½- inch or 5/8- inch nap roller, and a spray application is an acceptable method. The.Approximately times more water vapour is carried into our walls by air leakage than is carried by vapour diffusion.

    Most of these flashing tapes are pressure sensitive, so they require rolling or some other way to mash the adhesive into the substrate.

    Studies by Bowen and Velten 4 have found that the facers on the various sheathing boards that are commercially available differ and result in varying coverages for fluid-applied air barriers.

    Self-adhering sheets with a butyl-based adhesive can be used at these locations and are also typically suitable for in-service high temperatures, such as those that would be expected under sheet metal coping cap flashings Figure

    Air barriers, depending on the type and manufacturer, can be exposed to the elements for up to six months without a significant change in water penetration resistance.
