High Efficiency (HE) Stucco Assemblies

 
  Subscribe to FREE newsletter  Oct 15, 2010

Parex USA is delighted to announce the launch of its new HE (High Efficiency Stucco Assemblies). HE stucco assemblies are available through Parex and LaHabra or any other brand affiliated with Parex USA that offers stucco assemblies. HE assemblies are insulated stucco assemblies that include a layer of continuous insulation up to 2 in. thick. As an insulated stucco assembly, HE assemblies provide a durable exterior with an energy saving layer of continuous insulation. This use of continuous insulation covers “thermal breaks” in wall assemblies and significantly enhances any structure’s insulative performance. Each assembly utilizes a layer of continuous insulation. The type of insulation can be EPS, XPS or Polyiso. A range of Parex USA finish options can be applied over the stucco base with varying levels of warranty coverage dependent on the type of finish selected.

WaterMaster HE assemblies provide the same durable benefits and aesthetic beauty of standard HE but comes with a liquid applied water resistive barrier and air barrier. The use of a liquid applied water resistive barrier is superior to paper based water-resistive barriers because there are no issues with rips or tears in the paper thus providing a continuous layer of moisture protection. Furthermore, the liquid applied water-resistive barrier in WaterMaster act as an air barrier as well. This allows a structures climate control systems to operate more efficiently and saves the building owner money. The combination of the air barrier and continuous insulation on this HE assembly provides the ultimate in energy efficiency for a stucco assembly WaterMaster HE is an exceptional upgrade to any structure.
