Moisture Management in Tiled Showers

1:15 pm - 2:15 pm

Leaks and mold continue to pose serious problems for the construction industry. This seminar will compare traditional waterproofing systems with modern waterproofing technology to show how tiled showers have evolved. The fundamentals of both approaches, including proper design, execution, and function will be presented, with close attention paid to common errors, as well. The benefits of bonded waterproofing technology and how it has improved tiled showers will be stressed.

Levels of Finish and How to Achieve Level 5

4:30 pm - 5:30 pm

This 1-hour presentation identifies the various levels in which gypsum board surface is finished for the particular board application and final decoration. Each level of finish is defined per ASTM C840 and presented in discussion, details and samples to establish a clear visualization of these levels of board finish. A new and extraordinary “level of finish” is introduced and examined as a “Basis of Specification” for your more demanding design and board finish requirements.
