Are you looking for a new home in East Van? Whether you’re a first time Buyer or are looking for your next home, I’ve sure you’ve heard of the term “rainscreen” and have wondered what it means and how important it is to buildings built in Vancouver. The short answer? A rainscreen is a building system that allows water to evaporate and drain before reaching the inner walls of the building thanks to a cavity built between the exterior wall and interior wall. Along with good overhangs, flashing on the windows and ell maintained exterior materials, the building should be in good shape. Not every building is rainscreened (however any building built after 2000 will be rainscreened), but not every building will require a rainscreen – it all depends on how the building is being maintained and how it was designed.
