As temperatures rise and fall from day to day and the weather changes, condensation and moisture can collect behind the cladding of metal, stone, brick or stucco façades of commercial or industrial buildings.
Thru-wall flashing is designed to capture this moisture and redirect it safely toward the exterior through weep holes and other openings. If the flashing is missing, damaged or installed incorrectly, the moisture could migrate toward the interior of the building, causing water damage, mold growth and structural problems.

Modern commercial façades feature a cavity between the exterior façade and the interior walls. Any moisture that collects in this cavity should be redirected toward the exterior by the thru-wall flashing. If it is missing, damaged or incorrectly installed, you may notice:
It is important to track down the source of any moisture or leaks on the interior walls of your commercial building. Water damage and leaks from thru-wall flashing are often incorrectly attributed to leaking windows and ignored. Left alone, the leaks can cause costly water damage and structural problems.

Thru-wall flashing is a challenge to repair as it is located behind the metal, brick, stone or stucco façade of a commercial building. All of the cladding, expansion joints, and related components must be removed to repair or replace the flashing. The flashing can then be repaired or replaced, and any damage caused by the leaks can be repaired at the same time. Finally, the cladding system can be reinstalled.
One of the most common causes of thru-wall flashing failures is improper installation. Understanding how the flashing system works takes plenty of knowledge and experience, and inexperienced installers can easily make damaging mistakes. To prevent problems, use only trusted installers when working on new commercial building projects.
