Horizontal furring strips on rainscreen around windows
I am having my siding and windows replaced. As part of this project, I specified that a rainscreen be installed. When reviewing the work today, I noticed that they are installing horizontal furring strips above and below the windows. Is there any reason to be concerned about the strips above the windows inhibiting drainage?
I found several discussions of horizontal rainscreens on the site, and I assume this would not be much different from that.
Also, as you can see in the pictures, they decided to use a drainage wrap, HydroGap, in addition to the rainscreen. I suspect this further ameliorates any concerns.
I already have several unrelated issues that I have brought up with them, and I would prefer to not raise this if it is a non-issue.
