The mere existence of an installed product is proof-positive that it works. I’m convinced of it. After all, it’s all I see. 

Here we have a building being skinned. Its fluid-applied AWB wrinkled and discontinuous. Its insulation mottled and gapped. Its cladding attachment system missing the mark. 

But it’s all there, prescriptive is as prescriptive does – the state of advanced construction. The spawn of energy codes.
