How to Design and Build High Performance Walls and Roofs

October 19, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

PG&E Energy Training Center – Stockton, CA
October 19, 2018 | 9:00am – 4:30pm

Event Overview

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

This interactive class will:

  • Examine how to design and build high performance wall and roof assemblies that deliver energy efficiency and do not lead to water and moisture failures
  • Showcase the myriad of insulation system options and ways to match the best insulation system to the type of structure
  • Display 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
  • Explain the installation and air barrier requirements and how to develop appropriate specifications to meet these new codes and create buildings that perform with better real-world results

More information on the event’s agenda, available CEUs, and additional dates are available on the PG&E website.
