This course will discuss moisture management and the value of properly flashed wall assembly systems. It will cover how moisture impacts building durability and the mechanics of moisture movement. The course will identify common design defects that lead to moisture problems, as well as details and wall assemblies that will provide better moisture management. The course will also cover ASTM E2112 methods for flashing openings.
The Importance of Wall Assembly Systems in Moisture Management for Multi-Family, Mixed-Use and Light Commercial Buildings (print version)
Thin, large format porcelain panels provide all of the beneficial characteristics of porcelain tile but in a product that is less than ¼ inch thick and lighter in weight. Its technical capabilities allow it to be used in more interior and exterior applications, it is more environmentally friendly than thicker and heavier products, and it is appropriate for use in both new construction and renovation projects. This course will cover the characteristics of thin, large format porcelain tile, interior and exterior applications, specification and installation considerations, and green building contributions of the product.
