Managing Condensation, Water Intrusion, and Energy in the Real World - 1

Managing Condensation, Water Intrusion, and Energy in the Real World - 1

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 differences between silicone, urethane, and STP 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 STP technology through case-study examples.
