Hanley Wood University

Brick Cladding and Water Management


This learning unit is registered for one hour with AIA and NAHB and will address the benefits home builders and architects attain when choosing brick cladding as the primary exterior siding on homes. Brick, when compared to other exterior cladding options such as vinyl siding, fiber cement, stucco, and manufactured stone, is proven to be a superior choice for minimizing the potential for water intrusion and moisture issues. Also, brick has a long history of not only increasing curb appeal with aesthetic appeal, but also providing superior impact resistance and fire protection that are unmatched by other materials. 1 HSW hour, AIA; 1 NAHB hour.
