APTNW Water Repellents and Historic Masonry Workshop
Please join us for presentations and discussions on the use of water repellents on historic masonry. It's a divisive topic. Knowledgeable professionals who generally abide by the same preservation principals often confront differences of opinions on the use of water repellent systems on historic buildings. One school of thought encourages the use of water repellents as a means to improve material performance; cut maintenance costs; and protect the envelope from moisture intrusion. Another school of thought posits that water repellents will alter water vapor transmission systems that have been in place for decades, introducing the potential for deleterious short- and long-term effects. The goal for this event is to encourage participant and presenter discussions of water repellent systems by dispelling misconceptions, educating participants on the science of water repellency, and sharing case studies of historic the science of water repellency, and sharing case studies of historic
masonry buildings with and without water repellent interventions.
