RR-1306: Vancouver Field Exposure Facility—Analysis and Comparison of HardiePlank Walls

By Jonathan Smegal    Created: 2013/05/16

This report analyzes the performance of walls clad with HardiePlank fiber cement siding and compares them to traditional stucco assemblies. The data presented is a subset of experimental data from a multi-phase, multi-year research project at the Vancouver Field Exposure Test Facility led by Building Science Corporation (BSC) and Gauvin 2000 Construction Limited. The analysis includes results from normal operating conditions in a high stress exterior moisture environment (typical of the Pacific Northwest climate) and under intentional controlled wettings to the interior and exterior of the sheathing.
