    The siding is not only beautiful; it protects the home by diverting water away and also allows air circulation

    For many years builders in the Northwest worked to control rain water by building structures that were not permeable to rain water.

    But if you have ever tried to control rain water, you’ll realize that a better plan is to manage the water. A rain shield around a home is meant to do exactly that, rather than prevent moisture (which is almost impossible) instead the idea is to manage the water and give it a place to go as well as accommodate air flow to help dry any moisture that doesn’t find its way out.
