Drip Alert: Moisture problems can also stem from pressure-washing your house. If you decide to use a pressure-washer, be sure that you never direct the stream of water up under your siding. This can trap the moisture between your siding and walls and create problems.

APA's Free From Mold ten point protection plan □ Position sprinklers to water your yard, not your house. Make sure lawn sprinklers aren't consistently wetting the siding, windows, or foundation walls.

□ Overwatering your lawn or plants can create moisture and mold problems even in the summer.

Because APA has no control over quality of workmanship or the conditions under which engineered wood products are used, it cannot accept responsibility of product performance or designs as actually constructed. Consult your local jurisdiction or design professional to assure compliance with code, construction, and performance requirements.
