Masonry Veneer System over Continuous Insulation (MVS-CI)
Masonry Veneer over CI combines the aethestics of tile, bricks and stone with the performance of Continuous Insulation.
Masonry Veneer over CI can wrap almost any structure in a blanket of insulation. This allows building owners to obtain the look and feel they desire yet enjoy the operating benefits of low energy costs. Whether the project is new construction or the renovation of an existing building the design and energy benefits of CI make this cladding an ideal solution.
Masonry Veener over CI includes a liquid applied water resistive barrier and air barrier. The use of a liquid applied water resistive barrier is superior to paper based water-resistive barriers because there are no issues with rips or tears in the paper thus providing a continuous layer of moisture protection. Furthermore, the liquid applied water-resistive barrier act as an air barrier as well. This allows a structures climate control systems to operate more efficiently and saves the building owner money.
