joints are required where they exist within the structure
ii) Where the Architectural profiles intersect
with dissimilar surfaces or materials.
iii) Where expansion joints occur within the
exterior cladding system.
iv) Extra expansion above and beyond
may be required as a result of the projects structural conditions.
F. Control Joints:
