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.

Sintered Compact Surfaces for Building Facades - NeolithFacades

11:15 - 12:15

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. Choosing a material to use for a facade is certainly influenced by the ability to hold up over time but also by the available size and weight, not to mention the appearance, of the material. Being able to install it in a manner that is efficient and cost-effective usually rounds out the criteria for selecting a building material for building facades. There is one new product category that will be the focus of this course, namely sintered compact surfaces that can be used for curtain walls, rain screens, siding applications, and other common wall systems for both residential and commercial buildings.
