WEBINAR: Durability For Steep Pitched Roof Assemblies Through Vapor Management
Tue March 19 at 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
1 LU | HSW
Presented by Benjamin Obdyke
Course Description: There are several roofing underlayments available and determining the appropriate one can be based on several contributing factors – climate, building codes, roof type, pitch, and a variety of others. In this course, we will explore the importance of considering vapor management in the roof and attic assembly, in order to create a durable, steep pitched roof.
- Identify the performance criteria for different code compliant roofing underlayments.
- Understand why moisture management and vapor permeance, under the roofing material, are more critical as focus has shifted to unvented roof assemblies.
- Understand the limitations of current codes & testing criteria when specifying materials for high-performance roofing applications.
- Recognize the potential impact of improper detailing at vulnerable locations in the roof assembly.
