  • What Makes a Thermoplastic Roof Sustainable?

    1 LU HSW/SD/CMP

    In a time when words like "green", "sustainable", “environmentally friendly", and "all natural" are being used to describe many products, it is difficult to know exactly what attributes to look for when making a purchase, and roofing is no exception. This presentation provides an in-depth look at sustainable roofing criteria, provides a methodology for rating the sustainability of various roofing systems and shows how to look past industry "green washing”. This program is registered with AIA for 1 HSW/SD hour and with GBCI for 1 CMP hour. Take the course.

  • Design Considerations for Waterproofing Systems

    1.0 LU HSW

    Design Considerations for Waterproofing Systems was developed to help architects and designers better understand single-ply thermoplastic waterproofing materials. Participants will learn the history of waterproofing, the difference between damproofing and waterproofing, the different system and assembly types, review the types of material components and attachment methods, review section details, and follow a case study from start to finish. Take the course.

  • Design Considerations for Low-Slope Roofs

    1.0 LU HSW

    Design Considerations for Low-Slope Roofs was developed to help architects and designers better understand single-ply thermoplastic roofing materials. Participants will learn the history of thermoplastic membranes, a comparison study of the thermoplastic membranes in relationship to membrane polymer thickness, the importance of having a certain amount of polymer thickness above the reinforcement scrim, water absorption, linear dimension change, and UL fire testing. The presentation also discusses the energy-saving benefits of a white thermoplastic membrane when compared to a traditional black roofing system. Take the course.
