Through Wall Flashings
Presented by Craig Wetmore
With all the myriad of building enclosure components and materials, there is a significant risk to ensure that all materials are compatible and work together as a system. An important part of a water control strategy for your walls requires integration of the air barrier, water-resistive barrier, insulation and other related components, including through-wall flashing. Not all assemblies work together and there are specific steps needed to ensure proper water drainage. This presentation will provide an overview of all flashing choices that can be selected and specified and provide information on how to make product selections and what materials are not compatible in a system. Real-life examples of various systems and transitions will provide attendees with an understanding of the successful construction of these components.
- Acquire knowledge in the various composition of each type of flashing and their effects on sustainability and life cycle costs.
- Define how to specify through-wall flashings to avoid chemical compatibility issues that may impact how well the air barrier performs and integration with the insulation to provide maximum energy efficiency without a breach in the airtightness/thermal layer.
- Specify the performance characteristics of different types of cavity wall materials and how to create a resilient flashing system.
- Identify necessary accessories for through-wall flashing and challenges of installation and integration with other building enclosure components.

Craig Wetmore, the President of York Manufacturing, has over 25 years of experience in the construction industry. He has a concentrated knowledge in through-wall flashings, moisture management, transitions, and wall components. Craig is active in building community where he is a member of CSI, RCI, USGBC, ASTM and the ABAA. He serves as President of the Maine CSI Chapter, he is the chairperson of the ABAA’s Marketing Committee (education and outreach), and serves as a Director on the executive board of the ABAA.
Craig works with architectural firms, engineering firms, installers, general contractors, AIA chapters, Building Enclosure Councils, and CSI chapters in the discussions of flashing and building science. His efforts center on wall flashings compatibility with air barriers and insulation products, lifecycle costs, transition materials, and installation advice on all different types of flashings.
Craig and the York team have developed many new products to solve the issues that are encountered in the drainage of water from the building enclosure.
