How to Design and Build High Performance Walls and Roofs

June 12 @ 9:00 am - 4:30 pm

Description

California’s new Title 24 Energy Code all but requires high performance walls with exterior insulation as well as attics and roofs with multiple layers of insulation in what can seem to be in confusing and contradictory locations.

This class examines how to design and build high performance wall and roof assemblies that deliver energy efficiency and do not lead to water and moisture failures.

Steve Easley will use pictures from real world installations to illustrate the do’s and don’ts to building high performance walls and roof assemblies that are affordable and cost effective.  This interactive class is designed to sort through the myriad of insulation system options in order to match the best insulation system to the type of structure.

Energy codes are requiring specific installation protocols to ensure true insulation performance. This class also will explain installation and air barrier requirements by codes in order to develop appropriate specifications to meet these new codes and create buildings that perform with better real world results.

Please Note: Class materials including the presentation file will be shared within two days of the class via Box (file sharing). If you would like to follow along and view the presentation file or add notes within the file during class, please bring a laptop or a tablet.
