DEFEND AGAINST TOXIC MOLD WITH MORTAIRVENT®

DEFEND AGAINST TOXIC MOLD WITH MORTAIRVENT®

Manufactured stone, EIFS & stucco are extremely popular home exterior coverings.  Despite their considerable durability, hairline cracks will form, most frequently in the mortar joints.  These cracks are especially common in parts of the country that experience frequent freeze and thaw weather patterns.  These hairline cracks allow wind-driven rain to penetrate the mortar and collect within the interior wall.  Once the moisture gets in it has nowhere to go, thus creating the perfect environment for toxic mold growth.

Mortairvent® is a two-ply mortar deflection and ventilation system that has been specifically designed for use with manufactured stone, stucco, EIFS and brick. By installing the Mortairvent® two-ply system, a ventilation cavity is created between the vapor barrier and exterior wall.  The blue polymer core mesh creates the airspace, while the filter fabric blocks mortar droppings from seeping into this newly formed cavity, while still allowing moisture to pass through.  This combination of drainage and ventilation eliminates the threat of toxic mold.
