Oregon Code Advances: Rain Screens Now Required
Between Oct. 1, 2016 and the end of April 2017, Portland, Oregon, experienced more than 145 days of rain, equaling 45.5 inches. Building code requirements vary across the United States, and in Oregon, rain screens have become a major topic of conversation due to the wet weather. After meeting structural requirements, water management in exteriors has established itself as a top priority, especially in wet climates.
