    Twelve peer-reviewed papers provide the latest information available on building envelope interface. These papers represent original research to reduce water leakage attributed to window installation practices, particularly in residential and light commercial construction.

    Topics cover:
    • How to detect and observe hidden window leaks using infrared thermography
    • Assessing the effectiveness of wall-window interface details to manage rainwater—from window installation to a wall sheathed in extruded polystyrene
    • Test data for wall assemblies incorporating methods for fenestration installation that would be applicable to the wall systems commonly found in the coastal Southeast, with consideration of the high wind-driven rain loads that accompany tropical storms
    • And much more!
