Home Episode 7: Water Management

In this episode Matt & Steve discuss the role of water management in construction. Water is dissected into three key aspects: protection, mitigation, and prevention. Emphasizing water's status as the leading destroyer of buildings and the primary reason for litigation in construction, the episode highlights the connection between climate, risk, and the vulnerability of structures to weather. Protection measures, such as architectural components like overhangs and canopies, are discussed in detail, with a focus on the aspect ratio's importance. Mitigation strategies encompass both barrier and water-managed systems to combat water intrusion, underscoring the dual approach for optimal results. Prevention tactics, including proper ground sloping and rain gutters, are outlined. The episode concludes by stressing the significance of water management as an integral aspect of building science, crucial for long-lasting and comfortable homes.
