Managing Condensation, Water Intrusion, and Energy in the Real World
Sponsored By PROSOCO
Presented By Alley Mathson
1 AIA HSW/LU CE Hour(s)
1 GBCI General Hour

Window-opening air and water leakage has been a difficult problem for the construction industry. This course evaluates building failures, conventional construction approaches, and new developments in waterproofing techniques to show a path forward for designers seeking higher-performing wall assemblies.

Learning Objectives:
  1. Explain why job-site conditions should be used as systems engineering requirements in construction product development.
  2. Compare and contrast the similarities and differ-ences between silicone, urethane, and STPE sealants.
  3. Describe the multi-step weatherproofing process of conventional window installation and how such installations fare in real-world testing conditions.
  4. Explain new window weatherproofing techniques using liquid flashing membranes.
  5. Instruct others on construction defect remediation using STPE technology through case-study examples.
