Masonry Flashing & Moisture Control
Let’s get back to the basics of flashing and moisture control strategies for masonry walls. This seminar will explore typical and high-end flashing systems for cavity walls and single-wythe. Multiple speakers will address this subject from different perspectives of: workmanship, material selection, concerns, compatibility, and best-practice approaches. You will see a blend of mostly successful and not-so-successful masonry flashing installations. You will learn how flashing systems integrate with air barriers and other wall components to be designed and installed properly.
Construction Cautions and Top 10 Concerns with Enclosures
Brian Stroik brings the real world experience of his decades of experience working for one of the top contractors in the nation to discuss how to build durable High Performing Enclosures. Based on building science principles this presentation will take you from design through construction of high performing enclosures by walking you through the top 10 concerns / issues he has encountered during his experiences out in the field. Some of the topics Brian will be discussing are: value of preconstruction meetings, the importance of testing mock ups, creation of installation verification lists, in-situ testing, and failures in transitions between materials.
