Intro to Moisture Mitigation

8:00 am - 9:00 am

An in-depth understanding of moisture issues in concrete slabs and the deleterious effect of a high moisture vapor emission rate (MVER) on flooring finishes. The presentation will address “sick building syndrome” caused by excessive concrete moisture vapor emissions; the various industry-approved methods for testing of MVER and for generating accurate data; conditions that generate excessive moisture in slabs and how to resolve them; how MVER barrier technology works, and how and when to specify it; and ICRI’s certification program for moisture-testing technicians – the only certification program in the industry.

BURSI – Single Ply Roofing Systems

10:15 am - 11:15 am

During this presentation, attendees will receive an introduction to the different material types, properties and characteristics of TPO, PVC and EPDM roofing membranes. They will gain a better understanding of the different system applications and performance characteristics. Upon completion of the class, attendees will be able to identify the flashing designs for the different roof assemblies available and have the ability to match system and installation methods when considering which system would best fit their design criteria.

Sintered Compact Surfaces for Building Facades

11:15 am - 12:15 pm

Materials used on building facades need to withstand many things, including water, wind, sunlight, and sometimes severe weather conditions. They also need to hold up to the effects of people who may inadvertently or even intentionally cause damage. This course explains what is sintered compact surfaces, advantages and applications.

Moisture Management for Multi-Family, Mix-Use and Light Commercial

1:15 pm - 2:15 pm

Moisture damage contributes to 90% of all building and building material failures; making the management of moisture key to building longevity. The course will discuss the movement of moisture, cover some keys design issues, a better and best solution for moisture control, and how to integrate moisture control with exterior continuous insulation. After the course participants will have more tools for wall detailing. Learning Objectives: • Describe how moisture impacts building durability and define the mechanics of moisture movement. • Identify common design details that can cause issues for moisture management. • Write better specifications for moisture control utilizing better and best methods and have ASTM standard to reference for flashing openings. • Understand the integration of a moisture control layer with exterior continuous insulation.
