The WATERWAY RAINSCREEN STUCCO assembly is an enhanced traditional stucco system that can be configured as a back ventilated, or a dead air cavity wall cladding system. Both configurations are considered drainage systems in that intruding moisture is able to drain to the exterior. The basic system consists of optional rainscreen drainage and ventilation mat, a permeable air and moisture barrier, which not only protects against air infiltration into the interior but also guards against liquid moisture intrusion and allows for vapor diffusion. Optional "Continuous Insulation" (CI), adding insulation outboard of the weather-resistive barrier increases thermal performance of the exterior assembly and meets the requirement for continuous insulation in many codes.
