Building exerts report that both of thesft de- cct-s, common though they are, can e averted by the use of insulating oard lath, which serves both as si ilaster ard as insulation. A modern product made of wood, :ane or other vegetable fibers, in- .ulating" board lath is manufactured n rigid sheets four feet long and in widths of 16. IB and 24 inches- Both ts size and its high insulating vnlue ;>lay important parts in preventing iath marks and cracks. The large units are joined together closely, providing a continuous surface for the piaster, l^ath marks arc thus impossible. Usually plaster cracks are the result of twisting and warping of framework during the drying process after it has absorbed moisture from wet plaster. In. the average house, plastering introduces 200 lo 308 gallons of water, all of which must evaporate. When insulating board lath is used, it acts as a moisture-resistant barrier between the plaster and the framing. The moisture is forced into the rooms rather than permitted to seep into the walls or ceiling. Then it is carried away harmlessly by ventilation. Thus one of the prime causes ot plaster cracks is removed completely. Application of plaster on this modern type lath docs not affect its insulating properly whatever. It remains highly resistant, to passage of heat, and therefore keeps the Uorne cooler in summer and warmer in winter. It Is available in thicknesses of one-half inch and one Such, to provide the degree of insulation required. _ . v .-.. NOTICE OF CHANTING OP .
