Two years ago the E06.55.15 undertook updating E2128 - Standard Guide for Evaluating Water Leakage of Building Walls. The first part of the process was successfully completed with the ballot approval of changes to the body of the Guide. The second part of the process begins now with updating of the Appendices. The Taskgroup is dealing with the Appendices a few at a time. This ballot is for the first three: (X1) - Sealants; (X2) - Masonry; and (X3) - Windows and Curtain Walls. As these three progress through the process, the remaining and perhaps some new appendices will be introduced and balloted. It is anticipated that the duration needed to complete the update is and additional three to five years.
