New article - Pleae critique

We have had a lot of rain in the Chicagoland area, and warm, wet winters for the past two years. As a result, many masonry buildings (Chicago is primarily a masonry town. Remember the Chicago Fire?) have been having waster intrusion problems. Recently, I have noticed that even well constructed buildings have been suffering from a lot of water intrusion issues above windows and doors.

So, I researched and wrote this article.

Please critique and comment. Hope it helps to educate.


Thanks will much appreciated … Roy

Great points. Water needs a way out if it gets in and it always gets in. Thanks, John

I will be credited with coining the phrase “front damming”. :slight_smile:
