    Water Management in Shower Installations

    Tiled shower demand is growing by double digits. Showers are getting bigger, more luxurious, and more expensive. Five million new tiled showers are installed every year! Most shower problems are not detected until after at least a year and any warranties have expired. In this course, specifiers and wet-area construction tradespeople will be able to effectively explain the benefits of using bonded waterproofing membranes in a fully bonded shower system for a better, longer-lasting product.

    The World is Flat: A 21st Century Approach to Urban Hydrology

    This course looks at the evolution of stormwater management and how it has shaped site development decision-making. The course discusses the emerging concept of veneer hydrology, a shallow horizontal waterflow management system that uses evapotranspiration instead of infiltration. Veneer hydrology entails placing thin layers of soil and vegetation in areas of the urban environment that don’t lend themselves to landscaping such as over utilities, buried structures, and subways. Key design parameters are outlined to bridge challenging landscapes with unstable soils and limited depth settings. Enroll

    Moisture Durability Opportunities in Green Standards / Codes

    Many green standards lack sufficient measures to ensure long-term durability of wall assemblies. Unfortunately, some energy efficient designs, while code compliant may adversely impact durability. The importance of increase moisture management capabilities, such as effective drainage, will be demonstrated using tools and simulations to assist in designing energy-efficient and durable walls.

    A Primer On Rainscreen Wall Systems (Print Version)


    Rainscreen wall systems are used to protect buildings from water penetration and related moisture damage. They are especially effective when used with impermeable types of exterior cladding. In very wet regions of the U.S., rainscreen wall systems are sometimes required by code (i.e., regions with greater than 60 inches of rainfall per year). It is considered good practice to use rainscreen wall systems in moderately wet climates (i.e., 20–60 inches of rain fall per year). They are also very effective for improving the durability of the exterior walls of buildings – when porous building materials are used. Rainscreen wall systems can also offer an attractive light weight approach to constructing an exterior wall. Enroll

    Moisture Mitigation with Rainscreen Technologies (Print Course)

    There is no such thing as a water-tight structure. Because water takes the path of least resistance, it will find even the smallest opening in the building envelope, allowing moisture to enter the wall system, no matter how many layers of protection are provided. Therefore, in addition to keeping water out with various weather resistive barriers (WRB), systems must be put in place to allow water to exit the envelope once it inevitably does get in. Enroll

    Open Cell Spray Foam Insulation in Commercial Buildings

    Open Cell Spray Foam insulation is a logical and proven choice for commercial buildings as it can reduce upfront costs by taking advantage of higher yield and also can reduce energy related operating costs for buildings. In addition to having the lowest environmental impact by being water-blown, Open Cell Spray Foam Insulation also contributes to improved indoor air quality within the building and overall building occupant comfort. Over the course of this presentation, you will learn about Open Cell Insulation’s air barrier and vapor permeability, fire ratings and code compliance, ability to enhance a building's longevity, and environmental and Green Building contributions, as well as all health and safety directions, recommendations and best practices.

    Continuous Insulation - Spray Polyurethane Foam vs. Rigid Foam Board

    The design of exterior wall assemblies has become increasingly focused on performance for greater energy efficiency and resistance to air and water penetration. The 2015 International Energy Conservation Code and ASHRAE 90.1 now requires insulation that is continuous in wall assemblies, (i.e. not interrupted by studs, framing, etc.) in all eight climate zones within the United States. This push for continuous insulation in exterior wall assemblies is also reflected in green building standards and the desires of building owners to reduce energy costs.

    In this presentation, we will look at the performance, installation and cost advantages of medium density spray foam insulation compared to the commonly used rigid foam board in continuous insulation applications.

    A Rainscreen Solution Using Fiber Cement Architectural Wall Panels (Print Version)

    Moisture intrusion in a wall system can cause numerous building defects as well as health ailments for building occupants. This course will review the cause and effects of moisture intrusion and will discuss how fiber cement panels can be used as a rainscreen to mitigate this moisture. We will identify different rainscreen technologies and ASTM and AAMA testing standards that measure their performance. By the end of the course you will understand basic design approaches and guidelines for installing fiber cement panels as a rainscreen. Enroll

    The Importance of Wall Assembly Systems in Moisture Management for Multi-Family, Mixed-Use and Light Commercial Buildings (print version)

    This course will discuss moisture management and the value of properly flashed wall assembly systems. It will cover how moisture impacts building durability and the mechanics of moisture movement. The course will identify common design defects that lead to moisture problems, as well as details and wall assemblies that will provide better moisture management. The course will also cover ASTM E2112 methods for flashing openings. Enroll
