Your Nose Knows
Like it or not, we all know instinctively what MOLD smells like. All buildings have mold. What matters is the following: type of mold, amount of mold, where is the mold forming and why.
Mold needs two things to live and grow – food and water. The food mold lives on is cellulose – wood products and drywall. The water comes from many sources – rain, condensation and humidity. The water is stored in the wood products, like joists, framing lumber and plywood roof decking. Condensation forms on steel framing and copings. And rain water and humidity is held in insulation, concrete block and brick.
"I have, personally, seen this product installed on a number of buildings and find it to be one of the most innovative construction products, ever.
It solves both the problems of flashing and venting, all in one."

"My client was smelling musty wafts. When we opened the top of the wall to investigate, we could see water trapped below. We didn't think fast enough to catch it in a bucket, but it's fair to estimate 3 gallons poured out of this section of the wall. Then we pulled the rest of the copings, and found more cells filled with water. After all the water was drained, we installed WickRight Coping VRS, WickRight Parapet Vent ® Copings and Interior Wall Assembly and a custom version of the WickRight Roof VRS. The last time we checked, the building was completely dried out."

Signs 2 & 3 – Parapet-itis and Pre-Pancaking, Old Town
Sign 1 – Efflorescence - Old Town
Stains stand out on red brick, old and new – one of the tell-tale signs of water damage in Chicago. This does not mean that brick is more prone to moisture absorption or water damage than other masonry. It's just easier to see.
Sign 1 – Efflorescence - Gold Coast
Sign 1 - Efflorescence - Lincoln Park
Wet Split Face Block buildings typically look wet. Staining may be less obvious than on brick, but the damage is typically far more severe.
