Moisture Barriers

  • Pre-Applied Waterproofing Technology

    This program is registered with the AIA for 1 CEH. Pre-applied waterproofing is the practice of installing the waterproofing prior to building the structure; typically the pre-applied waterproofing will be directly in contact with the exterior of the foundation slab and walls and is used to protect the foundation and building from water and moisture ingress. The intent of this course is to provide a better understanding of pre-applied waterproofing so that systems can be selected and designed with a higher level of technical expertise. Take the course.

  • A Closer Look at Metal Wall Systems

    By the end of this course you will be able to recognize how moisture and thermal problems arise in a building. You will understand why different climatic parts of the country need different exterior wall system assemblies. You will also understand what types of exterior wall systems deliver superior R-values and be able to list the potential problems caused by improper wall system product selection, location and installation. You will be aware of the sustainability features of exterior metal wall systems and finally, you will have a clear understanding of the value of “integrated accessories.” This program is approved by the AIA for 1 HSW CEH. Take the course.

  • Green Waterproofing Solutions

    1 LU HSW/SD

    There are many challenges facing the building and design community in regards to the prevention of water, moisture, and gas leakages in structures. Undertaking proper green waterproofing measures at the outset of construction ensures the long-term viability and sustainability of buildings. Upon completing this course, you will have a better understanding of why waterproofing is necessary, including the effects of mold, deterioration of foundations, elimination of air quality problems, and efficient use of below-grade structures as living environments. You will be able to describe the steps necessary to create a leak-free foundation and you will be familiar with the products available to use when waterproofing a structure. Finally, you will be familiar with the green building process and green waterproofing solutions. This program is registered with the AIA for 1 HSW hour. Take the course.

  • Below-Slab Vapor Protection: Taking the Ground out of Play

    This program will discuss the often overlooked subject of below slab vapor protection. We will look at the problems associated with moisture vapor transmission. We will be examining the science behind these problems and the basics of moisture vapor drive. Then we will talk about the ASTM standards and ACI recommendations that are available to move your thinking beyond the minimums described in building codes. Take the course.

  • Insulated Composite Backup Panel Technology: Achieving Superior Thermal and Moisture Protection

    1.0 LU HSW/SD

    This course will outline the functional differences between an inner back-up wall and the rainscreen component. You will be able to identify key weaknesses and problems associated with popular multi-component back-up wall assemblies. Finally, you will learn one strategy for creating superior back-up wall assemblies in steel frame construction with single-component back-up wall systems. 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.
